New Readings in Group Analysis (NRGA) Conference 2018
With presentations from Daniel Anderson and Justin Phipps
Date: Saturday 2 June 2018, 9:30 AM - 5:30 PM
Venue: Institute of Group Analysis, London NW3 5BY
The annual New Readings 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 in the field. Over the years, the NRGA conferences have promoted dialogue within the Group Analytic field as well as between Group Analysis and other fields. It is a forum where both new and old narratives can be heard and debated, providing an opportunity for reflective and critical thinking about theory and practice and their interrelationship.
This year we have an exciting day planned with two group analysts presenting their work on discourses of difference and identity
Daniel Anderson: ‘Transgender and Transwords in the Social Unconscious'
Justin Phipps: ‘Like Peas in a Pod’- Social Identity, Narcissism and the Elimination of Difference’
