Post Graduate Seminar in Family Emotional Process, Clergy Track I

This program was begun by the late Dr. Edwin H. Friedman in 1988. As Dr. Friedman's faculty, we are continuing the program. The focus of the seminar is on the three emotional systems: the clergy's family of origin, the parishioner or congregation family and the congregation, itself, as an emotional system. The days will be divided into theoretical and clinical presentations, videotapes, including videotapes of Dr. Friedman and clinical consultation. Small group consultation for the clergy's family of origin will occur on one afternoon, and for the parishioner family and congregation system on the other afternoons.

Theory Day Open Session

"Silence and the Brain"

Angelo Bolea PhD - January 10, 2020

9:30 AM to 4:00 PM

The Brain has certain locations that process Silence. Exploring how The Brain handles silence yields very intriguing insights into the formation of Self, Family, and Culture.

Family systems can be impacted as much from silence as from words. In fact, it may be the silence between the words that make words work.

Silence can break down walls and build up trust. It can make or break a relationship, a family or organization.

The secret of good and bad silence may be in the timing and in the duration of silence. Exploring The Brain's use of silence can be life enhancing. We fail or flourish based on giving The Brain the Wisdom of Silence.


For those unfamiliar with Dr. Bolea, he is a neurospychologist and expert in neurofeedback who presents the latest in brain research as it relates to optimal functioning.

Dr. Bolea is a createive and gifted speaker. His knowledge of the brain and reletionships deepen one's understanding of Bowen Theory and Ed Friedman's leadership ideas.
