Quarterly Meeting for Members and Colleagues

Quarterly Meeting for Members and Colleagues for professional contact, dialogue and development (QMMAC)


Friday 15th June 2018, 9.30 am – 4.00 pm
Edinburgh Quaker Meeting House, central Edinburgh

Fee: £30 (£15 for IGA Students)

For this QMMAC, we welcome  Pauline Holland for her talk on De-personalising Conflict in the Workplace.

In this talk, Pauline will outline her approach to consulting with teams and groups in organisations who have become stuck in patterns of mistrust, hidden agendas and unhealthy conflict.  She will describe the process of helping group members to depersonalize the conflict as a key step in being able to work together to address the risks and challenges inherent in their leadership task.

Pauline Holland is a Leadership and Organisation Development Consultant specializing in team and group relations.


These meetings offers the exciting opportunity to meet colleagues from group analysis, psychoanalysis and related professional fields for a shared experience of large group work and a series of presentations relating to the theme of working as a psychotherapist in Scotland.

We convene regular meetings on a quarterly basis throughout the year, offering continuity of contact and shared professional development.

This is an enjoyable and supportive meeting giving space for thinking, dialogue and learning. It is hoped that regular meetings serve to reduce feelings of professional isolation, stimulate creative discussion and strengthen a developing sense of the psychodynamic/psychoanalytic work offered by colleagues, whether or not group analysts.

Through shared learning and dialogue, we grow stronger and more confident about our work and its place in the psychotherapeutic milieu.

This event is suitable for past and present trainees in group analysis (at any level), group analysts, individual psychoanalysts, and colleagues in other fields.
