Containment and Confrontation: A Psychosocial Model of Development - This article originally given as a paper at the 6th IAGP Pacific Rim Conference in Singapore in March 2003, presents a model of psycho-social development - the development of individual psychic life in conjunction with group life in the social and political sphere. It is grounded in Bion’s conceptualization of containment and PS - D function. Following his differentiation of the possible relationships between container and contained we can sketch a model of interaction between group and individual that is dynamic and developmental, providing a compass not only for group analytic interventions but for considering group processes in wider realms, such as international conflict resolution.
