The Institute of Group Analysis (IGA) was established in 1971 by Dr SH Foulkes and a group of colleagues to provide clinical training in group psychotherapy. Since then group analysis has developed a strong presence in many regions of the UK, making the Institute of Group Analysis a truly national organisation. The IGA is a National Institute dedicated to providing high quality training in the field of group psychotherapy in numerous national locations.
Group Analysis is a form of psychotherapy by the group, of the group, including its conductor.
Group analysis aims to achieve a healthier integration of the individual in his or her network of relationships.
Focusing on the relationship between the individual and the group, thus placing emphasis on the essentially social nature of human experience. It is an interactive approach and has many applications in the field of human relations, teaching, training and organisational consultancy.
“The method and theory of group analysis is concerned with a dynamic understanding of the inner working of the human mind as a social, multi-personal phenomenon” (Foulkes 1975) and as such can be applied to groups, individuals, couples, families and applied groups.
The IGA has procedures in place to ensure that qualified Group Analysts are considered suitable for the teaching and supervision of such work undertaken by trainees on the qualifying courses.
