Capturing Murray Bowen Moments: Ideas and photos

WEEKLY EDITION • January 12, 2022

Last week we looked to the future with FFI Futurenaut-in-Residence Mark Stevenson. Today, like Janus, we look in another direction to reflect on the work of 20th century psychiatrist (and futurist!) Murray Bowen. With one of those rare, truly original ideas, Bowen developed family systems theory and, by extension, forever changed family enterprise consulting and research paradigms.

We hope you enjoy this article and the related photographs by Andrea Schara who worked closely with Dr. Bowen from 1976 to 1990.
