IL NODO GROUP Association and University Milano Bicocca are  pleased to announce: 


 Humanity at risk? Experiences and reflections on contemporary society

1st-2nd February 2019

Università di Milano Bicocca, Villa di Breme Forno (edificio U46), Via Martinelli, 23  Cinisello Balsamo (MI) 

The experience of group membership is part of everyday life, always influencing the psychic life of the individual, their conduct in groups and how they take up the role of citizen in society.

The Large Group invites members to explore and  take into account how their personal experience   and the social context  impact upon the roles they take. 

Since the beginning of last century many studies have investigated the relationship between the individual and the group, to better understand how these dynamics impact on public/private organisations, on small family business, on the schools and in the family. The studies have also explored how the unconscious manifests itself in groups and all social systems. Group Relations Conferences in the Tavistock tradition have developed an experiential methodology  for the understanding  of social phenomena: in consultancy to support organisational functioning, in the therapeutic domain and in the marketing research.

This event offers participants the opportunity to: 

  • Study what happens in a large group 
  • Reflect on the impact of our behaviour on those around us and on the group as a whole
  • Reflect on one’s role as citizen and how it is related to and is a reflection of the preoccupations of contemporary society
  • Use the learning to develop our role of citizenship

The approach is based on learning in the “here and now” from experience as it occurs.  There will be opportunities to reflect on what has happened during the Large Group meetings and of application of the knowledge acquired

The event is open to all those wanting to learn about the conscious and unconscious dynamics that impact and influence large groups.  The enrolment is limited up to 65 particpants.  

Registration is subject to availability of a limited number of participants
