Applying Systems Psychodynamics: Enhancing Organizational Diagnosis
This course will provide students of systems psychodynamics an opportunity to apply their knowledge to the diagnosis of actual organizational quandaries and challenges they are confronting. Each participant will be asked to prepare a single written case of no more than five pages to be distributed to class members in advance of the discussion. Faculty and class participants will collaborate with the presenter in developing the diagnosis of the organizational dilemma from systems psychodynamics perspectives and in considering effective courses of action. This course is open to students who have taken the theory course (Enhancing Leadership in Organizations) or have participated in a Group Relations Conference, or who are familiar with systems psychodynamics through other pathways. Please contact the instructors if you have questions regarding eligibility.
