A Case Analysis of Family of Origin Using a Bowen Approach
Provide a case analysis of your own family of origin using a Bowen approach. Introduce the Bowen model and discuss how the model is systemic.
Create a genogram of your family of origin using the correct format. Depict at least three generations (more if you wish to), including you, your parents, and your grandparents (as well as aunts, uncles, and cousins, as applicable, to complete the assignment). Include information on cultural factors such as race, ethnicity, religion, and social class and demographic information such as age, geographic location of residence, jobs held, etc. Use this genogram to provide a brief overview of the major experiences and patterns of interaction for your family. How do diversity issues affect family dynamics? Describe your family in terms of the major concepts of the Bowen approach. This is not a family history but rather a description that emphasizes an analysis of relationships from a Bowenian perspective. Briefly define each concept and then illustrate each concept from your family of origin.
