Systemic Approach to Human Communication: A Synthesis of the Works of Ruesch, Bateson, Watzlawick, and Haley.
Arnett, Ronald C.
The purpose of this article is to bring together the work of Jurgen Ruesch, Gregory Bateson, Paul Watzlawick, and Jay Haley in order to reveal their combined contribution to a systemic understanding of communicative behavior. Emphasis is upon the interactional and circular pattern of human communication, rather than on the linear, or cause/effect, analysis. The theoretical constructs and application of the systemic approach to human communication are developed in this article as a model for initiating change in human behavior. The article provides insight into the systemic nature of normal, daily communication and is of particular benefit to those interested in helper/helpee or health communication. (Author/JM)
