What to do about relationships?

How you handle yourself in relationships may have a greater bearing on your life than any other factor. Human beings depend on each other to survive and thrive. Whether in family groups, business or organizational networks, relationships have the potential to be resources for accomplishing important goals. They can also become a hindrance to productive action. At varying extremes, interactive processes can even become destructive to health and human life.

The Vermont Center for Family Studies (VCFS)

The Vermont Center for Family Studies provides education and coaching to people interested in learning and practicing "systems thinking." This might include taking action to improve significant relationships and to solve personal and professional relationship challenges. VCFS is part of a national network of centers devoted to the study and teaching of Bowen Family Systems Theory. The theory has applications to various contexts in which humans interact with others. It is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
