Abstract [en]

In this article we will describe group behaviour out from three different theoretical perspectives: Social psychology concepts and symbol theory are used to explain intergroup behaviour and behaviours within a group. In addition we apply a psychological theory in order to describe processes within the individual group member, which precede and are related to specific group behaviours. This includes the abilities of mental space and play. These capacities are corner stones in identity development processes. Symbolic play, an intermediate space, neither tallying the outside world nor the inside world is another condition for peaceful interactions with others. We try to apply these theories, developed with respect to the individual, in order to expand their ambit to group processes, creating a multi dimensional picture of group processes.
