The Social Unconscious in Persons, Groups, and Societies: Volume 2: Mainly Foundation Matrices (The New International Library of Group Analysis)

The Social Unconscious in Persons, Groups, and Societies: Volume 2: Mainly Foundation Matrices (The New International Library of Group Analysis)

The social unconscious is vital for understanding persons and their groupings, ranging from families to societies, committees to organisations, and from small to median to large therapeutic groups, and essential for comprehensive clinical work. This series of volumes of contributions from an international network of psychoanalysts, analytical psychologists, group analysts and psychodramatists draw on the classical ideas of Freud, Klein and Jung, Bion, Foulkes and Moreno, and on contemporary relational perspectives, self-psychology and neuroscience. Volume 2 is concerned mainly with the foundation matrices of the social unconscious. It is focused on topics such as transmission, trauma, the foundation matrix, the social unconscious, the collective unconscious, totalitarianism, massification, and identity formation. It also includes discussions of the foundation matrices of a number of countries including Germany, Brazil, Japan, Israel, Ireland, and the Czech Republic. More info →

The Large Group Re-Visited

The Large Group Re-Visited

This important and thought-provoking book explores the workings and dynamics of the large group, with clear descriptions of both theory and technique. Building on Kreeger's earlier collection of papers, this volume shows how large-group concepts in group analysis have evolved to become important tools in understanding the social interactive processes operating in conferences, workshops, training institutes and large organizations such as hospitals, psychiatric communities and government agencies - and even operate in virtual groups formed on the internet. The authors consider issues of leadership and order, the control and expression of aggression, spiritual and therapeutic experiences, the maintenance of individuals' identities and the development of culture in the context of larger groups. Engaging with a broad set of contexts, this book will be of practical use to all those who seek fuller understanding of the social and psychological processes underlying group dynamics, including group analysts, sociologists, policy makers and consultants.

The Paradox of Internet Groups: Alone in the Presence of Virtual Others (New International Library of Group Analysis)

The Paradox of Internet Groups: Alone in the Presence of Virtual Others (New International Library of Group Analysis)

The new virtual era is already here. We use the internet every day, to retrieve information, to purchase merchandise, and to connect with others. But do we really understand the psychology of the internet and how it affects our lives?In this book, Dr Haim Weinberg looks at cyberspace from a group analytic perspective, conceptualizing internet forums as large groups with the illusion of being small groups, and using his expertise as a group therapist to shed new light on internet connections. He explores issues of attachment, relationships, inter-subjectivity, and neuroscience, and shows their relevance to the virtual world. He discusses the question of intimacy and develops a new concept of E-ntimacy that better suits internet bonding. He also examines the multicultural issues found in internet forums, and the leadership qualities needed to manage these issues. Finally, he claims that there is a link which connects us through the world wide web: the internet unconscious. More info →
