This is an authoritative sourcebook on a major strand of Group Relations Theory - "learning from experience". This approach was developed jointly from psychoanalytic and open systems theories, including those of Bion, Kegan, Klein and Freud. It will be invaluable for all those involved in working with groups and organisations. The papers in this collection look at the underlying theory and the practical application of learning from experience. They address the broad issues of authority, leadership and organisational culture, whilst concentrating on other issues in-depth, such as inter-group conflict, and gender and race relations in the workplace.

Industry Reviews

'This book will be required reading for all who are interested in the theory and practice of working with groups and organisations, as well as those who have a serious interest in the area of experiential education and group relations training: MBA and other management students, managers, consultants, personnel and training professionals, researchers in group and organisational behaviour and educationalists. It will appeal, therefore, to a wide variety of professionals and students who are broadly interested in group and organisational psychology, as well as those who are already conversant with the theories and practice of GRT and its applications.'- Lionel Stapley, from the Introduction
