The four main sections of the article contain a brief overview of extant studies on group supervision; the structure of the case study project; a discussion of the results of a questionnaire on the participants’ experiences of the group supervision aspect of the project; and a summary of the benefits, challenges and risks of group supervision according to the participants in the project.
