The annual New Reading in Group Analysis conference presents an exciting opportunity for anyone interested in Group Analysis, whether member of the public, IGA trainee or IGA Member, to come together to discuss emerging ideas, visions and applications the field. Over the years, the NRGA conferences have promoted dialogue on many levels; within the Group Analytic field; between Group Analysis and other fields; as well as between the theory and practice of Group Analysis.  It is a forum where both new and old narratives can be heard and discussed, providing an opportunity for reflective and critical thinking while building on the Group Analytic foundations of the field.

This year we have an exciting day planned with three group analysts presenting different papers on aspects of the body and embodied experience in group analysis. The NRGA Committee consists of Vasilli Magalios, Claire Barnes, Julia Borossa, Maddy Loat and Daniel Anderson.
