Pulling Theory Together
Much of what you are reading this week will be used in your genogram project, so it will be important for you to digest these phrases and concepts as you read, applying them (at least mentally at this point) to your own life and family (your family of origin and your current family system).
As you will find, there is a great deal of rich information in this book. Please feel free to comment on that which strikes you as well as responding to the prescribed post below.
After reflecting on the ideas of individuation, separation, cutoffs, etc., please write a reaction about these processes in your own life. What is most difficult in considering these concepts (for you)? How have you gained insight into your own family relationships through these readings? How might this information serve you when considering others' relational contexts?
