Sample text

We now see how Internet connection has in many ways surpassed conventional interpersonal communication. Not only is the overall sphere of communication considerably expanded but new forms of communication – email, Twitter, Skype, ‘selfie’, to name but a few, all with their particular idiosyncrasies, shortcuts, codes and rituals – have proliferated and diversified contact between people. While subscribing to the importance of communication in group analysis, I have also expressed reservations about the emphasis on the coherence of verbal communication (Nitsun 1996, 2006).

Since in principle all that we are is constructed within the social domain, this would presuppose that our theories are also affected by social change. A theory that is relevant in one era may not be relevant in another. An example is Freudian theory that had to undergo considerable revision in the face of social change over the twentieth century and that was required to respond to challenges about its relevance and viability in an altered social and psychotherapeutic universe. As we know, the ‘modernization’ of psychoanalysis has been controversial, some would argue unsatisfactory, and there are important questions about the survival and continuity of psychoanalysis in the emerging culture, with differing viewpoints on the issue (Chessick 2007).

Capra (1996), Scharmer (2009) and Sennett (2012) all call for social evolution through creative leadership. These are inspiring visions but they require the tools to make them work, to bring people together in ways that build on relatedness at direct levels of contact – and to move from ideology to action. These initiatives will require people to meet in groups and these groups will require facilitation and guidance, aiming to keep alive the spirit of face-to-face, person-to-person communication.
