'This book offers a wonderfully evocative journey into the highly distinctive and imaginative perspective on group and organisational life opened out by the Grubb Institute. It draws on both its founding vision and its later reformulation in a new century within a radically changing social and organisational context. Affectionately edited by Susan Long, it stimulates and repays a close reading.'- David Armstrong, Associate Consultant, Tavistock Consulting, London'This book stimulates ideas about boundaries and how they differentiate systems from their environment. It is an exciting collection of essays about the complexity of taking roles and the social unconscious. From a new perspective, authors discuss familiar topics such as unconscious processes, role framework, organisational analyses, the meaning of a system, and power. Anyone who is curious about the here-and-now process in organisations and searching for the answer to the question, "Is power a dirty word?" will find this book interesting. A very impressive combination of business case studies and theory.'- Ekaterina V. Mikhaylova, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychoanalysis and business consulting at the Higher School of Economics, Moscow, Russia'This is, without question, an important critical anthology on new developments in psychodynamic thinking and socioanalysis, and essential reading for anyone interested in the fast changing field of unconscious process in organisations. This well-conceived collection will make a significant contribution to the available literature on psychoanalytic studies of organisations.'- Marianna Fotaki, Professor of Business Ethics, University of Warwick'Susan Long highlights the singular contribution of Bruce Irvine and the Grubb Institute to our understanding of some of the most deeply held and intrinsically valued aspects of organisational life. The contributions to this volume consistently highlight the spiritual domain of organisation, that domain which is so often the source of vitality and purpose, and in doing so they enable us to rethink what is meant by the unconscious, interconnectedness and leadership.'- Paul Hoggett, Emeritus Professor of Social Policy, UWE, Bristol; psychotherapist registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council and Member of the Severnside Institute for Psychotherapy'The Transforming Experience Framework (TEF) presented throughout this book is an original approach, stimulating for analysts, consultants and researchers working with a systems psychodynamics perspective. Building on the history and expertise of the Grubb Institute, it stresses the interconnectedness between the person, the role, the system, the context and "the source", therefore avoiding the very present risk of a personalisation of the issues in the workplace. Once more Susan Long demonstrates her openness, creativity and depth of thinking as a clinician in the social field.'- Gilles Amado, Emeritus Professor of Organisational Psychosociology, HEC Paris, and founding member of the International Society for the Psychoanalytic Study of Organisations
