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

"How the Brain Enjoys New Beginnings"

Angelo Bolea PhD - June 3, 2022

9:30 AM to 1:00 PM

From Dr. Bolea:

With every new beginning, there is an ending. How does the brain differentiate beginning from ending?

Is it circular, linear, or oval in neuronal structure and function?

How does the concept of time impact new beginnings?

How does the brain interpret past, future, and present with respect to new beginnings?

Maybe, there is only one new beginning.

Let's explore these ideas together in a new beginning.


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 creative and gifted speaker. His knowledge of the brain and relationships deepen one's understanding of Bowen Theory and Ed Friedman's leadership ideas.
