The Researching Beneath the Surface module looks into how do we research and inquire into human experience? Particularly the affective and less conscious dimensions of this experience.

What are the ethical, organisational and political implications of connecting with and understanding our own and other"s deeper thoughts and experience? How might our emerging knowledge and understanding influence changes in our practices?

These kinds of questions are increasingly being asked today by researchers, consultants, social activists and organisational innovators.



These workshops will draw upon the theoretical insights and methodological tools offered by the more complementary dimensions of contemporary psychoanalysis, sociology, group relations and group analysis to develop innovative approaches to in-depth knowledge gathering and intervention.
