Learn about self, organisation and society in depth

Group Relations Australia (GRA) is a not-for-profit professional association whose members seek to develop the field of group relations and systems psychodynamics. We apply its methods to working with groups, organisations and communities, in the belief that there has to be a better way of living and working in groups, organisations and society – a way that promotes learning from experience, engaging the whole system, and developing our capacity for thoughtful, effective action.

Our members work as organisation consultants and managers, academic researchers and teachers, psychoanalysts and socio-analysts amongst other roles. Through GRA, they enjoy the benefits of mutual links with international associations in the field of group relations.

We conduct a stimulating range of activities and events for members that include: professional practice and scientific meetings, working conferences, workshops, seminars and lectures. The Association also publishes the peer-reviewed journal Socio-Analysis.

Members come primarily from professional backgrounds in psychology, medicine, psychiatry and social work and have undergone intensive training programmes at a post graduate level which are modelled on, and have links with established and highly regarded training programs overseas.
