The Power and The Play: The Paradoxical Nature of Group Life

New Readings in Group Analysis (NRGA) Conference 2019

With presentations from Maddy Loat and Andrew Mallett


Date: Saturday 6 July 2019, 9:30 AM - 5:45 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 the paradoxical nature of group life.


Maddy Loat: The Relational Power Paradox: Constraint and Enablement in the Group and its Therapeutic Potential

Andrew Mallett: Dis-illusionment and Belonging: The Group as Theatre
