Cultures, Conflict & Creativity

15th European Symposium, London 2011

Monday 29th August to Friday 2nd September 2011, 15th European Symposium in Group Analysis

Venue: Goldsmiths College, University of London

Group-analysis seeks to understand the many facets of culture. An analytic group has a culture, and so does a family, an organisation, a community and a society. We live in a time when cultures are increasingly interconnected while also striving for separateness to preserve identity. Most cultures are anxious about the global economy, climate change, and how to live together in the context of continuing wars, genocide and terrorism. Not only must we work with our personal conflicts but also with those that arise in interpersonal relationships, in organisations, and within and between societies and nations. How can the creativity of group analysis respond to and work with this complex matrix of cultures and conflict?
