This three-day group relations conference offers a unique opportunity to study the conscious and unconscious dynamics involved in how groups organize themselves and interact with each other.  This conference is not a passive learning event that relies upon lectures.  Instead, the learning is experiential.  Participants study how leadership, followership, authority, task, boundaries, and roles operate in the different group experiences they enter during the conference.  The conference will weave art and other non-verbal forms of expression into the conference events to illuminate unconscious dynamics operating in the system of group interactions that members and staff will create together.

Group Relations Workshop

When:     Saturday February 29th, 2020 from 9am to 6pm

Where:    CSUDH Loker Student Union Second Floor

 

Workshop Description: This one-day Group Relations workshop is a unique opportunity to study the conscious and unconscious dynamics involved in how groups organize themselves and interact with each other within a larger socio-political context.  This is not a passive learning event that relies upon lectures. Instead, the learning is experiential.  Participants study how leadership, followership, authority, task, boundaries, and roles operate within and between the different groups that form during the conference. 

By leadership, we mean how we use authority to get things done. By creative expression, we include mural and structure building art, as well as other forms of verbal and nonverbal expression. In this study of Leadership and Creative Expression, participants will be invited to explore the unconscious dynamics operating in the system of group interactions that members and staff will create together over the course of the day-long workshop.

Please Note:  Experiential learning is enriching but may be stressful. Individuals who are ill or experiencing a period of significant personal difficulty may consider postponing participation.
