Bowen Theory

About Bowen Theory

Dr. Murray Bowen, M.D. was a psychiatrist-pioneer who was among the first to define how families and work teams operate as an interconnected organism. These ideas provide a blueprint for leadership by describing precisely how this human social “system” works.

Dr. Bowen used the discoveries of field biologists, anthropologists, neuroscientists, and social scientists, along with his own research, to formulate more accurate descriptions of human relationship functioning. Thompson Leadership leverages Dr. Bowen’s insights to furnish leaders with dramatically effective relationship strategies and skills.
