Roberta Gilbert does a good job of breaking down systems theory to its basics. This is a good intro, but also a good refresher for people who work with family systems theory. There are perspectives I had probably read before, but were placed in a way that I grasped them in reading this short book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 097634551X, Paperback)

"The Eight Concepts" is a clear and concise description of the basic concepts of Bowen family system theory. Beginning with the fundamental concept of the nuclear family as the emotional unit, the other concepts -- differentiation of self scale, triangles, cutoff, family projection process, multigenerational transmission process, sibling position, and emotional processes of society -- are explained as they evolve out of the fundamental concept of the emotional unit. The emphasis is clarity of presentation and purity of presentation of theory. Numerous citations to the writings of Dr. Bowen and experts who studied under Dr. Bowen are used to present the theory in as pure a form as possible in a short and easy-to-read book. The special sections in each chapter for parents, coaches and leaders bring each concept home for different roles readers bring to the book. An index is included.
