According to Bowen, we have less autonomy in our emotional lives than we think. Most of us are dependent on and more reactive to one other than we realize. Bowen’s theory describes how the family, as a multi-generational network of relationships, shapes the interplay of individuality and togetherness using five interlocking concepts: differentiation of self, triangles, multi-generational emotional processes, emotional cutoff, and societal emotional process.
