For over 50 years, the A.K. Rice Institue for the Study of Social Systems (AKRI) has helped individuals and organizations understand the complexity, beauty, power and importance of groups. Its mission is to support and advance the studuy of group relations through educational initiatives.
Using a model originated at the Tavistock Institute in London, the approach facilitates learning within experiential 'group relations conferences' which help identify the often hidden, unexamined, and unconscious aspects of groups and organizations. AKRI also helps train practitioners and skilled consultants in this field through its training and certification program.
