EMS to offer seminar on family systems

Eastern Mennonite Seminary in Harrisonburg, Virginia, is offering continuing education options for pastors and Christian educators. Beginning in October, the seminary is offering an online continuing studies seminar in Bowen Family Systems Theory.

This seminar is intended for those with some acquaintance with Bowen Theory and who welcome the opportunity to deepen their understanding and its applications. There will be monthly sessions via Zoom video conferencing from October 2023 through May 2024. These sessions will include presentations by faculty, group discussion, and individual consultation with a faculty coach along with assigned reading and recorded lectures by Dr. Murray Bowen and others recognized as experts in the field.

Thanks to a Lilly Foundation Thriving in Ministry Grant, this seminar is available at a reduced cost of $360 per participant. Please see https://emu.edu/seminary/continuing-ed for more details. Registration is due by Sept. 15. A EMS Family and Congregational Systems – Continuing Studies Flier also is available.
