Peer group supervision – Developing Solutions Together
Many significant innovations begin with a simple idea. The same is true for »peer group supervision«: It is based on the idea that people within a work context can offer qualified consultation regarding professional issues to each other. What often happens in a more informal manner, however, requires a certain structure: Within one group, one member is being consulted by the fellow peers according to a specified procedure and assigned roles. This allows for a safe space to find creative solutions for a specific work-related issue.
The peer groups of five to ten work autonomously without a professional or external consultant. This book provides practical examples to illustrate the six phases of peer group supervision and provides methodological modules that can be applied depending on the specific problems being addressed or the group’s level of experience.
