GRA has historically offered experiential events, mini conferences (3-day non-residential conferences on a specific theme) and 6-day residential (Tavistock style) group relations conferences.
The plans for 2018 currently include two conferences: 15-17 April a 3-day non-residential conference and a 6-day residential group relations conference 19-24 November.
In November this year, NIODA is offering such an opportunity via its Group Relations Conference to be held in Melbourne:
‘Leadership, Authority and Organisation – Exploring Creative Disruption’
For details of the conference, please go to the link
The ‘Early Bird’ deadline is 28 July.
Timed to coincide with the GRA Socioanalysis Special Issue on Seeking Asylum, the Tavistock held a talk by David Lawlor & Mannie Sher on their journal paper: "The use of detention as a defence against intolerable social ambivalence towards asylum-seekers".
Tavistock has made a podcast of that talk available to all GRA members.
Symposium: 8-9 Sept 2017
NIODA and Susan Long are organising this exciting and relevant Melbourne symposium to examine the group psycho-dynamics of policy making.
