Socioanalysis Reading Group

This reading group will be exploring Socioanalysis over the years to help us understand the challenges of the contemporary world.

Over the years, Socioanalysis had published some important articles promoting the field of system psychodynamics. Many of those articles are applicable to and helpful in understanding the challenges of our contemporary world. This reading group will explore these articles, and where possible, we will invite the author of the article to the session.
