Group Relations Conference on Authority and Leadership in Recovery from Addiction  (4496)

01/11/2013 7:30 AM - 01/13/2013 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 meanings—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; and group support for recovery from these maladaptive roles.
