Group Relations Australia is a not-for-profit professional association whose members seek to develop the field of group relations and systems psychodynamics. We apply its methods to working with groups, organisations and communities.

Our members work as organisation consultants and managers, academic researchers & teachers, psychoanalysts and socio-analysts amongst other roles. Through GRA, they enjoy the benefits of mutual links with international associations in the field of group relations. We conduct a stimulating range of activities and events for members that includes: an annual member's day, professional practice and scientific meetings, working conferences, workshops, seminars and lectures. The Association also publishes the peer reviewed journal Socioanalysis.
