Inner and Outer Life at Work. The Roots and Horizon of Psychoanalytically Informed Work Life Research

    Resumé

    »‚Innen‘ – und ‚Außenleben‘ in der Arbeitswelt. Ursprünge und Potenziale
    einer psychoanalytisch informierten Arbeitsweltforschung«. The modern
    labour market has increasingly put the inner working life on the agenda. This
    stems from a number of societal changes: the knowledge society and its need
    of personalised competences and work investments in welfare services, the
    transformation from subject-object relationships to subject-subject relationships
    and the emergence of the "learning organisations" and reflexive leadership.
    All of this has been the subject of critical analyses tracing modern work
    life identities, conflicts, organisational and societal structuration. Against this
    background the accounts and conceptualisations of work life involving people
    to people interactions offered by psychodynamic theories and methods take up
    a pivotal position. Psychoanalytic organisational and work life research explores
    how work, organisations and individuals are affected by psychic dynamics, the
    influence of the unconscious in the forms of human development and interaction
    situated in a societal context. Based on this substantial work I draw upon
    two influential psychoanalytical positions – the British Tavistock position and
    German psychoanalytic social psychology in order to situate and identify how
    to understand the inner and outer life at work – in a generic display of concepts,
    methods and epistemology.
