OPUS Organisational and Social Dynamics Journal

The OPUS International Journal ‘Organisational and Social Dynamics’: An International Journal for the Integration of Psychoanalytic, Systemic and Group Relations Perspectives.

The aim of the International Journal ‘Organisational & Social Dynamics’ is to contribute to the development of a deeper understanding of organizational and social processes and their effect on the individual. It provides an innovative forum in which writers from psychoanalytic and systemic perspectives can address emerging issues in societies and their institutions. Papers range from case studies, features and reviews of contemporary social and political events, to personal polemics or reflections.

Contributions and Books for Review

‘Organisational and Social Dynamics’ is a forum for the publication of theoretical and applied papers that are relevant and accessible to an international readership; and, one where writers from psychoanalytic, group relations, and systems perspectives can address emerging issues in organisations and societies throughout the world.

It aims to sustain a creative tension between scientific rigour and popular appeal, both developing conversations with the professional and social scientific world and opening up these conversations to practitioners and reflective citizens everywhere. We wish to attract manuscripts from contributors who are aware of their own values, suppositions and assumptions, the influence of counter-transference in their work, whatever form it takes, and the ability to connect the internal world of individuals and groups with societal and global processes.

In addition to scientific papers, Organisational and Social Dynamics also seeks to attract accounts of interventions, in the shape of reports of action research projects or case studies of consultation projects; soundings, and writing inspired by events that offer perspectives on contemporary affairs and societies. It will also contain sections on speaking out, which will provide a space for personal ideas and polemic; and, dialogue, which will provide opportunities for differing views to be positioned together.

Reviews will provide a space for the review of books, plays, art and other cultural productions or events that are considered to be of interest as a result of the insights they provide into organisational and social dynamics.
