What is a Group Relations Conference?

A group relations conference is a method for learning about the exercise of role, authority and social dynamics in undertaking tasks in groups and organisations. It is a powerful personal learning experience unmatched by other approaches to organisa­tional analysis and leadership.

Group Relations Australia (GRA) has conducted biennial group relations and mini conferences since 2007. GRA’s conferences are based in the Tavistock / systems psychodynamics approach and have, over the years, explored and developed a range of innovations. The 2022 conference continues this tradition.
