Guidelines for Supervision Groups

Updated: Apr 11, 2022

 1. A supervision group will consist of 3 to 5 practitioners and a supervisor.

2. Ideally the group being brought to Supervision of Supervision will meet a minimum of fortnightly for the duration of the course.

3. Where a group has not started by the beginning of the course or soon thereafter, it may be necessary to extend the student’s supervision of supervision beyond the end of the course at the student’s expense.

4. The work supervisees bring to the supervision group can be either one to one, couple work or group work.

Students with firm ideas for a supervision group, broadly conforming to the above guidelines and in place around the start of the course, are best placed to derive maximum benefit from the course.
