Training Resources



This program is designed for people who want to practice and expand their capacity to "read' the group-as-a-whole and consult to what is happening in the here-and-now.

Participants will form both small and large study groups and have an opportunity to rotate into a consultant role for either small or large group, depending upon their level of experience. At the end of the consultation consultant(s) receive immediate feedback in a public setting from one or more senior group relations consultants for the benefit of all participants. A number of spots will be reserved for people who prefer not to take a consulting role, but are interested in the Group Relations model of experiential learning.

  • want to develop their group relations skills
