On Bridging Multiple Cutoffs: The Process of Uniting a Family Fractured by War, Family Feuds, and Mental Illness
Susan Johnson Hadler, PhD, Private Practice & The Rev. Jacques Hadler, Jr., Epsicopal Church
In her recent book, The Beauty of What Remains, Dr. Susan Hadler reveals the details of her journey to break through barriers of absence, silence and prohibitions. This effort was an opportunity to gain strength and support to persevere in the face of reactivity to find the lost, to bridge cut-offs and to bring her shattered family together. Her husband, The Rev. Jacques Hadler, journeyed with her using his awareness of Bowen theory through his learning experience with Rabbi Edwin Friedman. Dr. Hadler will talk about her journey and The Rev. Hadler will describe how Bowen Theory was an influence in this process.
