During the last ten years, I have had the opportunity to teach group dynamics to a variety of audiences: graduate and undergraduate students across disciplines (law, social work, conflict resolution, business, human services) in traditional semester-long format; as well as to experienced practitioners in half-day or day-long workshop formats. This article describes my experiences teaching group dynamics in the United States, Palestine, and Turkey. To begin, I will introduce the theoretical perspective of group relations, which underlies my teaching, and offer a critique of the model. Following that, I will describe some of my experiences teaching in the United States, Palestine, and Turkey. Throughout the paper, I will address how the dynamics were influenced by (national and professional) culture and the political environment in each context
