Featuring contributions from a range of organizational contexts, Group Analysis: Working with Staff, Teams and Organizations identifies the key features to group analytic practice as well as how different theoretical orientations, such as Systemic and Tavistock Consultancy approaches, can be incorporated into the process.
The book addresses two essential features of group analysis: the exploration of unconscious dynamics in groups, and the shifts of observational attention between the group as a whole, the individual in the group, and the group in the individual. Including perspectives from both organizational consultancy and reflective practice, chapters feature analysis with groups and subgroups in a range of settings, including a forensic psychiatric hospital, a children's hospice, an Anglican religious community and the management team of a global organization.
Group Analysis: Working with Staff, Teams and Organizations is a major contribution to the developing literature on group analysis. It will be of great interest to psychotherapists, organizational consultants, facilitators of reflective practice groups, coaches, trainees in these disciplines, and any professionals who work with staff, teams, and organizations.

"This book is a searching view of various ways of working with the dynamics of professionals. Not only is stress in teams a neglected priority, but knowledge about such stress needs to be held within the teams themselves. These Chapters join three traditions; that of Foulkes and the Institute of Group Analysis, as it encounters the Group Relations Tavistock and Systemic approaches. The result is not seamless, but it is an essential synthetic aim to be tackled, by writers now several generations after the founders at Northfield in WW2. The interweaving of the many ideas, complimenting and conflicting with each other, should not be missed." --Bob Hinshelwood, Professor Emeritus, University of Essex
