SOCIAL MOVEMENTS?

NIODA'S 6th Annual Symposium

7, 8 & 9 September 2022

What can systems psychodynamics add to our understanding of social movements?

Social Movements have long been part of societies worldwide. We can instance such momentous issues as indigenous land rights; female suffrage and the emancipation of slaves; as well as protests against wars or government economic measures; and more recently there are demonstrations surrounding climate change, cruelty to animals, racial discrimination and gender, even against government public health measures.

A social movement may be defined as ‘a loosely organized but sustained campaign in support of a social goal’ (Brittanica). They are an ‘effort by a large number of people to bring about or impede social, political, economic or cultural change’ (University of Minnesota on-line Library). They most often involve a protest against ideas, actions and the culture of the establishment or a call to action for change.

As distinct from an interest group, social movements are organized to initiate social change and involve action by the members, often in the form of protest using multiple methods. They are collective and may arise spontaneously amongst people with a common outlook, but then become sustained and organized. They may be local, regional or global. Social anthropologists and sociologists have defined the different types as reform, revolutionary, redemptive, resistance and alternative. They define lifecycles: beginnings, growth and endings: emergence, coalescence, bureaucratization and decline.

What can systems psychodynamics add to our understanding of these movements?

For instance, systems psychodynamics might begin to unpack what has been happening in political landscapes.

If social movements are defined as efforts ‘by a large number of people to bring about or impede social, political, economic or cultural change’ (University of Minnesota online Library), then a significant portion of the Australian population has been recently engaged. As a population, ‘We’ swept a conservative government from power. But we did not simply swap them for ‘those on the other side’ in the long-standing tradition. We swapped them for a new radical mixture of the traditional ‘other side’ plus some Greens and a handful of independent female candidates who ‘ruthlessly highlighted the moderates’ inability to influence the direction of the [government]’ (Wahlquist, The Guardian). They have been labelled the “Teals’.

If thinking about the life cycle of social movements – emergence, coalescence, bureaucratisation and decline – how and where does a new government’s plethora of promises fit? The new Australian government promises action on climate change, an Indigenous voice in parliament (already acted upon), and an integrity commission, to name a few.

Haven’t got time to do it by yourself? As they say, ‘it takes a group to understand a group’, collaborate with your colleagues on a presentation. Develop some new thinking, bring it to:

SOCIAL MOVEMENTS?

This symposium invites papers focused on the topic of Organising Protest: Where is our Systems Psychodynamics thinking on Social Movements?

Papers may include:

  • The systems psychodynamics of current social movements such as Black Lives Matter, ‘Me Too’, Climate Change, Animal Cruelty, LGBTQI+ Rights, the movements around colonisation: in Australian parlance – the Invasion Day / Australia Day argument, Deaths in Custody, the Anti-Vaccination movement.
  • The role of social media and technology in social movements;
  • Systems psychodynamic case studies of social movements: historical or current;
  • The psychodynamics of protest: its meaning and evolution;
  • Leading, joining, following and organising social movements;
  • Bridging the divide between different systems (work, recreational, family) when social movements are confronting and disturbing;
  • How does society accept and absorb successful social movements; what is pushed into the shadows?
  • What role do social movements play in the workplace?
  • How does identification with a social movement affect work roles?
  • What makes for a successful social movement?

We invite abstracts for papers to be submitted for selection by Monday 4 July and presenters will be advised by Monday 18 July 2022.

The psycho-dynamics of human animal connections

The psycho-dynamics of human animal connections

The psycho-dynamics of human animal connections

Eight-week live interactive online course

Prof Susan Long & Margo Lockhart

The psycho-dynamics of human animal connections

Eight-week live interactive online course with

Professor Susan Long & Margo Lockhart

 

Starting 5 October 2022

This course is open to participants interested in how the psychodynamics of human animal connections might aid you in your professional and private lives. It is designed as a pilot course at a postgraduate level although there are no pre-requisite studies required. It will be conducted live interactive online via zoom.

Course Content

This course explores the spaces that animals occupy in human social and cultural worlds and the interactions humans have with them. Central to the subject is an exploration of the notion of sentience, who or what we see as sentient, and what significance this has in human group, organisational and social behaviours. Participants explore their own connections and relationships with animals.

The course involves four main areas: how societies ‘construct’ animals through literature, film, art, and cultural ceremonies; the ecological significance of human animal connectedness; how humans use animals through economies such as farming, domestication, laboratory use of animals and the consumption of animals and related phenomena such as the concept of the ‘meat paradox’; and finally attitudes to animals, where participants explore human-pet relationships and the concept of anthropomorphism.

Participants are invited to examine their own interactions with animals through methods such as the use of drawing and a field trip to an organisation which is associated with animals. This might be a pet store, an animal welfare group, a farm, a zoo; or involvement in a program involving animals, such as a horse whispering program.

Participants also explore various attitudes to animals within a small group and observe the dynamics that occur throughout this exploration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this course participants would be expected to attain
knowledge about and insight into:

  • The definition of ‘animal’ and our own ‘animality’;
  • Animals as symbols in human systems- in literature the arts, folk lore, cults and ceremonial ceremonies;
  • The emerging discipline of ‘Anthrozoology’, the study of the interactions between humans and other animals;
  • The co-evolution of humans and animals;
  • The ways animals are used, consumed, thought about, and ‘not thought about’ in our personal and work systems;
  • The concept of ‘carnism’ as defined by Melanie Joy (2010).

and skills in:

  • Identification and management of unconscious processes related to animals in everyday life;
  • Identifying and working with paradox;
  • Intercultural and institutionalised understanding of various attitudes and treatment of animals and collaboration on these issues;
  • Understanding social defences and one’s own individual defences against unpleasant truths;
  • Drawing, writing and verbally articulating one’s own attitudes and actions with relation to animals.

Seven two-hour sessions

Two time options starting March 2022

NIODA is offering an exciting and valuable opportunity to explore online small group dynamics through participation in a small study group. Studying online small group dynamics provides an edge to the work we are all currently engaged in on virtual mediums. The study group method is that of the traditional Tavistock style study group method. In this, the participant group explore their own conscious and unconscious patterns of small group behaviour in the ‘here and now’ using group/system-level analysis. This design encourages in-depth ‘learning through experience’ as well as laying a theoretical foundation for understanding interpersonal group dynamics.

Through this experience, it is anticipated participants will increase their capacity to identify, analyse and manage online and onsite workgroup dynamics; to appreciate the emotional labour of work, and to enable constructive leader-follower relations.

The direct group experience is supplemented by critical discussion of selected theories and models of group dynamics.

Your learning will be supported with weekly readings.

Dr Wendy Harding will lead and manage the sessions, along with taking up the consultant role to the study group.

Small Study Group Series

CEO & Director of Academic Programs NIODA, Australia

Wendy Harding has been actively involved in the field of organisation dynamics in Australia for 30 years. She has been an educator for 25 years, first at Swinburne University, then RMIT, and since 2014 at the National Institute of Organisation Dynamics Australia (NIODA). Wendy is currently the NIODA’s CEO and Director of Academic Programs. Wendy is also faculty in both the NIODA master’s degree and PhD.

Study group is a unique and powerful method for understanding the ways in which covert dynamics impact the way that groups and systems work towards tasks, or alternatively seek to avoid the task. Avoidance can occur as a result of the challenging experience of being in a group, the task itself and the contextual forces acting on the group, or all of the above together. Wendy has had decades of experience in introducing ideas about deeper group dynamics and their impacts on the group through the study group consultant role. It is a critical capacity of the study group consultant to co-create with the group safe enough conditions for in-depth learning to occur. Wendy brings her extensive knowledge and experience to this task. Participants of study groups are then able to translate their learning to a greater understanding of, and influence upon their own workplace group dynamics, both online and onsite. This learning is a significant professional edge for all leaders, managers and team members.

Across these years Wendy has undertaken many coaching, supervision, consultancy and action research projects in a broad span of organisational settings from large government departments to a variety of corporate and not-for-profit organisations. Organisational consulting projects have focussed on team and whole of organisation development and structural and cultural change, using a range of intervention methods. Individual coaching and supervision have been undertaken with a culturally diverse range of people working at all levels in organisations from executive level to direct service delivery.

Wendy’s coaching/supervision/consulting philosophy is based in strong beliefs in the capacity of people to be able to make change that supports their work. The role of a coach/supervisor/consultant is then to provide opportunity for shared reflection and consideration of the experience of undertaking the work in the organisation. In coaching and supervising deep reflection enables unblocking of obstructions to think, learn and action differently about the work. In organisational consulting what is enabled is the capacity to influence structure, culture and strategic processes, to thus add value to the organisation. Wendy’s practice involves the introduction of theory, method and technologies in support of these considerations, however, at its core is always about reflection and dialogue; about people working constructively together.
