Training Overview

National Training Prospectus 2017-18

Founded over 40 years ago, The Institute of Group Analysis (IGA) is the leading provider of group analytic and group work training and the largest membership organisation for Group Analysts in the UK.. The IGA offers professional and academic qualifications in Group Analysis and Group Work Practice across the country, providing education, short courses and continuing professional development for over 800 individuals each year.

The IGA is a full organisational member of United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and an affiliate organisational member of the British Psychoanalytical Council (BPC). Our core Qualifying Courses are accredited by the UKCP.  As reflected in our comprehensive portfolio of trainings, the Group Analytic approach has profound implications for Group Work and organisational practice in a wide range of health, social and educational settings.  Our philosophy is that as personal difficulties arise in groups, groups are the best place to explore, understand and try and resolve them.  Group analysis aims to achieve a healthier integration of the individual in his or her network of relationships.  It is an interactive approach and has many applications in the field of human relations, teaching, training and organisational consultancy.
