Post-Conference Workshop : Who is Nearest? Who is Dearest? The Significance of the Individual and the Formation of Group Culture with Chris Hosking

110410 IncompleteSociometry disturbs the group from within. It provokes actions, thoughts, and feelings towards members of the group. As an active group process, sociometric interventions search out the influencing factors each individual member of the group projects into the group. Its goal is to create genuine cooperation and ultimately group cohesion, therefore the question of ‘who is nearest? who is dearest?’ is relevant in determining influences on the formation of the group culture.

The sociometrist views the group as having two areas of group life:  the socially structured aspects of the group, and the privately structured aspects of the group. In this workshop we will investigate what contribution sociometry can make to identify the more conserved aspects of group ‘etiquette’, and how these can enrich and enliven the group character generating a more satisfying group experience.
