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.

We are aware that there are some challenges with navigating our website. We are undertaking a redesign to make access to all our content much easier. Thank you for your patience whilst we fix these issues. If you have any queries please contact administrator@grouprelations.org.au or secretary@grouprelations.org.au 


Vale Bruce Irvine

It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the sudden death of Bruce Irvine, Executive Director of the Grubb Institute in London. Bruce was a frequent visitor to Australia, an energetic and powerful thinker who made great contributions to the work we all share.

Bruce will be very sorely missed and we mourn his loss.
