This course considers the Family of Origin model by Murray Bowen introduced in the Foundations for Family Studies course to be the primary model for understanding the dynamics of family life. This model provides for a holistic approach by taking all members of the family into consideration, and uses the Old Testament patriarchal families (Abraham,Issac and Jacob) as a case study. The curriculum has been designed to provide the student with an in-depth understanding and skills to use with the two major models introduced in the Foundations for Family Studies; it provides key skills for mentoring/coaching, an in-depth look at the godly father as the key to family life, healthy sexuality, and the study of the post-modern family. The Family of Origin and Genogram models are required major key components within the advanced course.
