Working with Racism in Groups: Integrating Intersectional Ideas, 04/05/2024, IGA

Working with Racism in Groups: Integrating Intersectional Ideas, Saturday 4th May 2024

Venue - Institute of Group Analysis

The Black feminist idea of intersectionality recognises the unique oppressions faced by Black women at the intersection of race and gender. In contemporary psychotherapy, intersectional ideas have gained popularity for potentially offering a framework to open up spaces for thinking and creating dialogue capable of working with systemic marginalisation and oppression.

This one-day workshop will explore some key intersectional ideas, examining how they might support group psychotherapists to work with entrenched manifestations of inequality, disadvantage and exclusion within our theories and practices.

Join GA trainees' community
Dear fellow collegues,
Some of us had an interesting experience at this year's EGATIN Study Days on June 10-12. It was  the first time it was a hybrid event which can provoke strong and many different feelings. So, we can catch up after a month and have another group experience - just us, the trainees. Come and bring whatever you like, concerns, challenges, visions, dreams... a cup of coffee. This world is crazy but we are in it together.
In case you want to join us for the first time - we look forward to having you amongst us! 
Have a good week and see you on Saturday!

Focused Group Analytic Psychotherapy by Steinar Lorentzen

Focused Group Analytic Psychotherapy. An Integration of Clinical Experience and Research

Steinar Lorentzen, University of Oslo, Norway

This practical text lays out a new form of focused, time- limited group analytic psychotherapy, built on new and existing research, and integrating clinical experience from across the field. 

Presented in three parts, Focused Group Analytic Psychotherapy clearly introduces the therapeutic approach, fully explores all the elements involved, from considering suitable patients to composing the group and the role of the therapist, and provides an in-depth examination of clinical quality assurance, research and the integration of supervision. Peppered with examples and vignettes from carefully designed research by the author and others, the chapters demonstrate how this approach can be used in group therapy with patients facing specific psychological problems, symptomatic distress and/or a problematic relationship to self or others.

Trainees Google Group

After the successful video conference (Oct 31 - Nov 1, 2020) an international group of trainees decided to form a google group to stay in touch, to share concerns and challenges of the group analytic training in different countries - especially during covid times - and to organize future events, e.g. leaderless online student groups, peer supervision, etc.

If you are a student at a group analytic institute with a link to EGATIN, please feel free to join us! Just write an email to, mention briefly your institute and you are in. We are happy to have you!
