The Relevance of Sociometry to our Experiences in Groups.

Sociometry has at its core a vision of cohesive groups, interpersonal mutuality and a stable society. Sociometry guides us to explore the psycho-social networks and deeper or hidden structures that affect the groups in which we live and work. The feeling nature of the informal, personal and often invisible systems is an exciting yet threatening field of exploration but the integration of the formal and informal fields can be exceptionally important to the success of a stable, cohesive and productive group.

In this workshop we will explore the sociometric factors that are at play in our groups both in the immediate here-and-now group, as well as other significant groups both past and current. We will be seeking to develop our ability to be the initiators of greater mutuality in relationships and leaders of cohesive groups.

There is a commonly retold story that you may have heard of the Chinese expression, or curse, “May you live in interesting times”.

Apparently, the closest anyone has come to finding an actual Chinese saying that is similar to this is “Its better to be born a dog in a time of peace than born a person in a time of war” Chinese wars were nasty. Interesting times indeed! Interesting times are those where there is a clash between "I like it just the way it is" and "Where next, get me outta here". This workshop runs Friday evening through to Sunday afternoon.
