When Bowen was a student and practitioner of classical psychoanalysis at the Menninger Clinic, he became engrossed in understanding the process of schizophrenia and its relationship to mother-child symbiosis. Between the years 1950 and 1959, at Menninger and later at the National Institute of Mental Health (as first chief of family studies), he worked clinically with over 500 schizophrenic families. This extensive experience was a time of fruition for his thinking as he began to conceptualize human behavior as emerging from within the context of a family system. Later, at Georgetown University Medical School, Bowen worked to extend the application of his ideas to the neurotic family system. Initially he saw his work as an amplification and modification of Freudian theory, but later viewed it as an evolutionary step toward understanding human beings as functioning within their primary networkDtheir family. One of the most renowned theorist and therapist in the field of family work, this book encompasses the breadth and depth of Bowen's contributions. It presents the evolution of Bowen's Family Theory from his earliest essays on schizophrenic families and their treatment, through the development of his concepts of triangulation, intergenerational conflict and societal regression, and culminating in his brilliant exploration of the differentiation of one's self in one's family of origin.

Greater numbers of children across the age spectrum are being identified as needing mental health assessment, intervention, and service, thus straining the capacities of practitioners and agencies. Withstanding these potential setbacks are the strength of the therapeutic relationship and the strength of relational connections with children, parents, families, and systems. Cohen Konrad's text is grounded in humanism and the traditional social work theories of relationship with emphasis on three core concepts-relational connection, evidence-guided knowledge, and reflexivity-all of which are necessary to maintain a successful social worker-child-family dynamic.Child and Family Practice: A Relational Perspective is an essential text that presents important guidelines and principles for working with children, their families, and their service-providing organizations. Cohen Konrad emphasizes the relational perspective, which places value on human relationships, particularly those that children establish with primary care givers and helping professionals encountered during times of crisis. With this text students can connect theory to evidence-based practice and use realistic case studies for classroom role-play and engaging discussion. Cohen Konrad's goal is to help students connect science, theory, and the human qualities necessary to effect positive change and inspire hope in the lives of children and families.

In this second edition of Daily Parts Meditation Practice, certified IFS practitioner Michelle Glass shares the foundations of this life-changing approach to counseling and self-healing. Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a way of understanding your personal journey and identifying and addressing past trauma and coping mechanisms. One of the fundamental themes of IFS is “parts”—separate facets of an individual that can work together or at odds with one another. See endorsements below. Glass demonstrates how to create Parts Timelines, Parts Catalogue Cards, Parts Biographies, Parts Maps, Parts Externalizations, and how to develop a specific and personalized Daily Parts Meditation Practice. Through these techniques, readers learn how to develop a coherent narrative, deepen integration, accrue less burdens, and augment spiritual awakening, among others. Glass’ exercises will help readers better understand their journeys and themselves. Whether they are new to parts work or experienced practitioners, they’ll find these exercises teach them something new about integration. Glass directs her work to both clients and therapists. For a therapist to successfully help clients, he or she needs to have a stable foundation. Daily Parts Meditation Practice can help them better connect with their clients and support integration. For clients, the guide can help them do their own work and better understand their journeys. See what others have to say about the DPMP: "As I travel around the world teaching IFS, I hear frequently from IFS clients who have been using the DPMP and loving it. I also hear from IFS therapists that they not only are having good results when their clients use it, but that they are finding it helpful for their own parts work. This second edition offers all that and more! This book will deeply enhance your journey toward being Self-led." Richard C. Schwartz, Ph.D., Developer of IFS "In this creative volume, Michelle Glass teaches a method of deeply integrating the seemingly disharmonious voices within, by firmly establishing secure relationships between Self and hitherto isolated and fragmented parts." Gabor Mate M.D. Author, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction "Michelle dives right into the deep end in her artistic, soulful and poetic exploration of the inner world. Using her personal journey as well as a fictional case study, Michelle offers clear, hands-on templates for identifying each part's unique story and for building strong, loving internal connections. If you want to deepen your own IFS or meditation practice, or just further expand your inner journey, this book offers a compassionate, creative and inspiring invitation." Cece Sykes, LCSW, Psychotherapist and Senior IFS Trainer "Michelle has created a wonderful resource for the IFS community with her book, Daily Parts Meditation Practice. She offers clear, creative ways to identify, get to know, unblend from, stay connected with and integrate our parts and the system with which they live. The sharing of her personal journey is yet another example of the benefits of Self-connection and the healing power of IFS. Bravo!" Frank Anderson, M.D., Executive Director, The Foundation for Self Leadership "With this book, you can trust both the message and the messenger implicitly. In IFS, we hold true the message: all parts are welcome, but sometimes we accidentally neglect parts after unburdening. The Daily Parts Meditation Practice will go a long way to prevent that from happening, while also strengthening the parts' gifts uncovered along the way. With these practices, transformation is a journey, not a destination. It is deeply honoring and so clearly presented." Mariel Pastor, LMFT, IFS Lead Trainer, Creator of Character Mapping And more...
