Theme and Vision (special program)

Art transcends and transforms everyday reality through its refusal to comply with its norms and conventions embracing a new look on it and an unknown understanding. Therapy and group processes share with the arts the idea to enlighten the shadow, the unconscious behind our behavior and our everyday reality to mobilize its transformation. From this angle the dialogue between the two of them can be enriching and sometimes even essential.

On the other hand Granada has witnessed the cradle and the death of Federico García Lorca who was a very close friend of Salvador Dalí from Cadaques / Catalonia. Josefina Cervera, group analyst from Cadaques and painter together with Maite Pi, group analyst from Girona and Jorge Burmeister, psychodramatist and writer from Granada try to illustrate the legacy of the two great artists through two interventions and a permanent exhibition. Their activities are meant to recreate the bridge between two places, two spirits and two friends for the present we share.

Opening intervention: Monday Plenary I 18.15 - 18.45
Closing intervention: Friday Plenary I 17.30 - 18.00

The Basic idea

The Summer Academy establishes for the sixteenth time a professional link between theory and practice of the important approaches of group psychotherapy and group work at an international level.

The academy is recognized under the auspices of the International Association of Group Psychotherapy and Group Processes (IAGP), the UNESCO (andalusain branch) and the Insitute for Peace (UGR). Besides the academy has been supported since its beginnings from a network of several national group organisations.

Six models of group psychotherapy will meet again in Granada: group analysis, psychodrama, jungian centered approach in groups, system centered approach, schema therapy and group dynamic. We will offer grants for students from Palestina, Israel, Marrocco and other countries.

Dialogue is the key term for peace processes at a global level. Thus
the summer academy is destinated to create a living learning field for
the quality, but also for the breaking points of multicultural dialogue.

It will focus especially this year different models and strategies for
mediating and resolving conflicts between and in groups.
Granada as historic model demonstrates the chances of a peaceful
coexistence between different cultures, but also its menaces and its fragility.
The academy as the essence of a shared culture of the group is putting the ”
tyranny of differences” of language, approach or culture into question.
