Grex Talks Presents a History Program: The Origins of Grex with Dr. Arthur Colman

History is a story told  from the storyteller's perspective

November 11th, 5:30-7pm
 The Origins of Grex 

From the mid 1960s through the 80’, Dr. Colman observed and engaged in the origin and early history of Grex and its parent group, the AK Rice Institute. He was one of the founders and member of the first board of directors of both organizations, the first president of Grex and then third of the AK Rice institute and editor of the first two Group Relations Readers, it’s influential and seminal Bible. He knew all the American “players“ intimately as well as many English/French/Swedish counterparts. From this experiential matrix, he will try to weave a story of how this now 50 year organization began: the loves, relationships, social context, and ethos that made Grex grow, develop and influence so many…
Arthur Colman was educated at Harvard College, Harvard Medical School, UCSF Department of Psychiatry, and the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco. Besides editing the first two Group Relations readers,  he has written seven nonfiction books, Including Up from Scapegoating and Love and  Ecstasy and two novels.
