Title: Containment of anxiety in organizational change: A case example of changing organizational boundaries
Year: 2004
Authors: James, K., & Huffington, C.
Abstract:

The concepts of containment of anxiety and organizational boundaries can be used to explore the issues that need to be attended to as organizations undergo change. This in-depth case study explores experiences in an organization undergoing rapid, radical change, drawing on a systems psychodynamics approach as the lens through which to analyse organizational experience. The case example in this paper is of a global organization moving to a new organization form and may particularly resonate with organizations experiencing similar radical re-structuring.

Keywords: Containment of anxiety, organizational boundaries, organizational change, systems psychodynamics, case study.
