What is systems psychodynamics?

Systems psychodynamics originates in the field of psychology and psychiatry. This approach is a more in-depth way to gain a deeper understanding of why certain structures exist with groups and society. Examples include racism, sexism, bullying and corruption, to name a few.

The purpose of GRA is to promote the study of group dynamics and the interactions between conscious and unconscious processes in organisations, groups, and society, and their application in professional practice.

We aim to achieve this understanding through discussions, events such as guest speakers, conferences, training and seminars and the publication of articles in a journal.

Why become a member?

Becoming a member gives you access to the latest research and thinking in the field of systems psychodynamics. You also have the opportunity to build your network with other professionals who practice this approach in the field. As a member, you will receive the monthly newsletter and the annual Group Relations Australia Journal Socioanalysis, in which we encourage members to contribute to. For members, all training and events are discounted with early registration and regular updates. Members can follow us on LinkedIn and Facebook.
