Group sandplay supervision: synergy at play


This chapter emerges from participating in and leading sandplay supervision groups for more than 20 years. Our experience has been with groups of four or ®ve members that have stayed together for 3±10 years. Normally participation in a group includes a yearly commitment of monthly meetings, each two hours to two and a half hours long, from September to June. New members are introduced into a group infrequently and then only at the beginning of a year. This chapter reviews practicalities in leading a supervision group, including the group culture, the group development, limitations and challenges, and con®dentiality issues of conducting sandplay supervision groups. The ®rst four sections are from Lauren's pen; Kay contributed the last section on con®dentiality issues.
