Groups and Gangs


    Powerful emotional forces are at work when people come together to form groups. As a method of psychotherapy, group analysis seeks to harness those forces to promote participants’ mental health and emotional growth. Members of groups in general can also engage in harmful and destructive behaviour. What makes a group a group, and when is it a gang?

    Through theatre, presentations by and discussions with workers in the field (including by those with lived experience of gang culture), this event aims to provide a lively and stimulating forum for people to think about what happens in groups and gangs.

    It is intended for group analysts and other mental health workers, teachers, youth workers, social workers, probation officers and prison staff.
