The Covid 19 pandemic and the Bowen2020 Conference
The development of Covid19 is presently raising s great concern among many around the world. This is something we fully understand. Therefore we have, as the organizer of the 3rd International Conference, decided to extend the Early Bird prices to April 30. We still expect to be able to hold the conference as planned on June 15-17. The development of Covid19 will of course be decisive and we will obey any decision taken by the government regarding conferences.
For third parties, e.g. hotels, airlines and other transport providers, decisions and disruptions are beyond our control and can affect the conference indirectly. Each person should contact their respective insurance companies to protect themselves from any obstacles to attend the conference.

The Bowen Theory is developed by Dr. Murray Bowen, an American psychiatrist and a professor in psychiatry at Georgetown University. The Systems Theory is developed through practical work with clients during several decades. Dr. Bowen analyzed families, congregations, organizations and societies as emotional units. Instead of the individual perspective, focus was set on how relations are built and changed depending on context and various levels of anxiety. Dr. Bowen begun his research during the 1940’s at the Menninger Clinic, Later he continued at the Georgetown University, Washington DC, USA, where he also founded the Bowen Center for the Study of the Family.
