Triangles are not good or bad….but they are tricky.
We’re excited to kick off our new two-part series, “Managing Self in Triangles”. Our guest for this episode is Dr. Jenny Brown, the founder and executive director of the Family Systems Institute and Family Systems Practice in Sydney, Australia.
Dr. Brown is the author of the insightful book, “Growing Yourself Up: How to bring your best to all of life’s relationships”, which provides practical guidance on personal development within the context of our relationships. She is also the co-author of “Bowen family systems theory in Christian ministry: Grappling with Theory and its Application Through a Biblical Lens”, a thought-provoking exploration of the Bowen family systems theory within the context of Christian ministry.
In addition to her writing and counseling work, Dr. Brown is lead the Parent Hope Project. This initiative equips clinicians to effectively engage parents of symptomatic children, adolescents, and young adults, providing a roadmap for parents to discover ways they can change their part in dynamics that are inadvertently impeding their young person’s development of self-regulation and responsibility.
