Summary

This book offers a theoretical framework for understanding covert and overt processes in group and organizational life. Using psychoanalytic (interpersonal and relational) and systems theory, the book examines the whole group and the unconscious processes that occur as they relate to racial and cultural issues. Conceptually, the model offered focuses on the group-as-whole rather than the individual. The book will also offer best practices in working with diverse groups in a variety of settings.Finally, racial-cultural differences often present challenges in multiple environments such as not for profits, and for profit organizations, which often impede productive functioning in group and organizational life. This book will address ways of managing these challenges.Features:- Theoretical framework to link group work with racial and cultural factors- Examination of the entire group process from joining to termination- Demonstration and analysis of authority and leadership issues- Exploration of ethical issues involving group processes and race and culture.
