As familial, organizational, and societal systems—humans group for many purposes. Some of those purposes require learning, whether for a time-limited purpose or as part of the group’s ongoing function. Yet human learning often remains framed in terms of the individual’s progress or lack thereof even when conceptualized as a relational process. Can Bowen theory help us understand if and how human groups, as systems, are capable of learning? How might that clearer understanding be of use, whether we are the group’s designated leader, an engaged group member, or a consultant to the group’s leadership/followership? And if such systems-level learning is possible, can it be facilitated? What principles, if applied, might redirect a group’s non-learning impasses? This presentation will explore the process of group learning from the perspective of Bowen’s natural systems theory.
