Group Relations Conference on Authority and Leadership in Recovery From Addiction  (3148)

01/13/2012 7:30 AM - 01/15/2012 5:20 PM

Effective leadership and the meaningful exercise of authority require more than intellectual and technical understanding. The Group Relations model in the Tavistock tradition provides a well-defined context within which to examine group-level forces and
dynamics as they occur in the here-and-now. As people work in groups, families and other social systems, their participation takes on many different meaning - influencing thoughts, feelings and action. The confluence of individual meanings powerfully affects
the identities, roles and authority we take on in groups, schools, organizations, institutions, communities and society. Members of a group relations conference have the opportunity to directly experience: How people join and engage in group work, delegate
and resist authority, and develop roles and reputations; how people contribute to and obstruct getting the group’s work accomplished; how members of a group exercise authority, power and influence in meaningful and appropriate ways—both as leaders and as followers;
group collusion in the creation and enabling of maladaptive roles; group support for recovery from these maladaptive roles.
