""Beyond the Anti-Group: survival and transformation" builds on the success of Morris Nitsun's influential concept of the Anti-group, taking it into new domains of thought and practice in the current century. "A historical and ideological breakthrough" (Tuttman 1991), the concept focuses on anxiety and hostility within, towards and between groups, as well as the destructive potential of groups. In Beyond the Anti-Group", Morris Nitsun continues his inquiry into the clinical implications of the anti-group but also explores the concept beyond the consulting room, in settings as wide-ranging as cultural and environmental stress in the 21st century, the fate of public health services and the themes of contemporary art. Readers of Beyond the Anti-Group: Survival and Transformation will be stimulated by the depth, breadth and creativity of the author's analysis and by the excursion into new fields of inquiry. This book offers new scope, new ideas and new impetus for psychotherapists, group analysts and group practitioners in general, students of group and organizational processes, and those working on the boundary between psychotherapy and the arts"--
The 'anti-group' is a major conceptual addition to the theory and practice of group psychotherapy. It comprises the negative, disruptive elements, which threaten to undermine and even destroy the group, but when contained, have the potential to mobilise the group's creative processes. Understanding the 'anti-group' gives therapists new perspectives on the nature of relationships and alternative strategies for managing destructive behaviour.
The ‘anti-group’ is a major addition to the theory and practice of group psychotherapy and applied group work. It comprises the negative, disruptive elements, which threaten to undermine and even destroy the group, but when contained, have the potential to mobilise the group’s creative processes. Understanding the ‘anti-group’ gives therapists new perspectives on the nature of group relationships and alternative strategies for managing destructive behaviour. With a new introduction written by the author, this Classic Edition of ‘The Anti-Group: Destructive forces in the group and their creative potential’, reassesses the theoretical base of group work , looking critically at the contribution made by S.H. Foulkes and comparing it to the work of Wilfred Bion. First published in 1996, Morris Nitsun takes a broader view of the subject, and places the ‘anti-group’ in the context of universal ambivalence about groups, which is evident in society at large. The 1996 edition has been widely read and is considered to be a historical and ideological breakthrough. With its timeless appeal, the Classic Edition will be essential reading for psychotherapists, particularly group analysts and group psychotherapists: group practitioners in general; organizational consultants; sociologists and social psychologists; academics and others in cultural studies and commentators on the link between psychotherapy and the arts.
The essays collected here explore the Catholic instruments of religious devotion produced in New Mexico from around 1760 until the radical transformation of the tradition in the twentieth century. The writers in this volume make three key arguments. First, they make a case for bringing new theoretical perspectives and research strategies to bear on the New Mexican materials and other colonial contexts. Second, they demonstrate that the New Mexican materials provide an excellent case study for rethinking many of the most fundamental questions in art-historical and anthropological study. Third, the authors collectively argue that the New Mexican images had, and still have, importance to diverse audiences and makers.
