About Communicology

The fairly new discipline Communicology builds upon a long and generally recognized academic tradition: The studies of social sciences like sociology, psychology, pedagogy, biology etc. and the communication-tradition in general including systemic thinking.

Inspired by the interaction studies of Gregory Bateson and the Palo Alto-group in the 1950`s, Jorunn Sjøbakken & Truls Fleiner researched, analysed and compared the social sciences, various methods, studies of other practitioners, research papers and theories.


Over the next 20 years a new discipline emerged. They summarized the material into a manageable and functional package identifying the master keys in communication and change. They gave this discipline a name: Communicology.

“Communicology is the study of the structure and dynamics of communication and change, when all experience and behaviour is defined and studied as communication.“ 

During the last 20+ years, over 1000 Communicologists were certified in Scandinavia, with all sorts of backgrounds and professions, such as: Lawyers, health practitioners, managers, nurses, coaches, teachers, therapists, consultants, CEOs and medical doctors just to name a few. 

In 2012 Jorunn Sjøbakken & Truls Fleiner started the International Program in Vienna to spread the education in Europe and around the globe.
