Introduction Familiarize yourself with the way that Bowen theory understands anxiety in family systems. For example, think about concepts like differentiation and how this relates to anxiety. You will use this knowledge to think critically about a vignette that will be provided for you. Instructions 1. For this assignment you must respond to the following case: A couple comes to you with trouble in their marriage. They are having trouble communicating. They report being explosive and lacking the ability to respond to each other in calm ways. Outside of their fights they report feeling little connection with each other anymore. Husband reports feeling left out, because his wife is communicating with her mother about their problems regularly. This is straining the relationship between him and his mother-in-law as she feels like her daughter is not getting enough of what she needs in the marriage. 2. Develop a systemic case conceptualization (not techniques or interventions) on what is going on with the couples presenting problems using Bowen concepts and ideas. 3. Answers should be essay format, no more than three pages. Please use Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, double-spaced.
