Group Relations Conferences contains the collection of papers presented at the Belgirate conference plus two additional papers, representing a collective picture of the current group relations thinking for addressing organisational and societal needs.

An international community of group relations practitioners met on the shores of Lake Maggiore, Italy in November 2003 to reflect on and debate contemporary issues in group relations and their application to the changing needs of organisations and society. The conference aimed to study Tavistock Group Relations Conferences via an innovative integration of reflective and didactic elements. There were two keynote lectures and eight side lectures and other group events that focused on the theory, design, role-taking and application of Group Relations Conferences.

This book will interest members of the group relations community and others whether or not they are familiar with and utilize Tavistock group relations thinking in their research, consultancy, management or teaching roles. It may serve as an inspiration to people who believe that issues that influence our lives at work and in society are complex and need more sophisticated tools to deepen understanding and lead to change.
