Many of us in GRA knew Herb or even had the privilege to work, think and learn with him over his many years here in Australia and overseas. He was an important figure in the world of socioanalysis, systems psychodynamics, group relations and social dreaming. A thoughtful, intelligent and considerate man, Herb trained in both child and adult psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the Tavistock Clinic and Institute of Psychoanalyis in London
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.
Group Relations Australia’s Seeking Asylum Project celebrated its achievements with a launch of Vol. 18 of Socioanalysis Journal. Guest speaker was Julian Burnside.
A usb flash drive containing a pdf of the Journal can be purchased through the Store.
