Abstract

The speech pathology profession acknowledges the need for professional development. There are well-established protocols and networks available for therapists seeking individual support (e.g., mentoring, supervision) however, there has been minimal attention paid to professional group learning which is non-hierarchical. This paper will explore the possible benefits and limitations of peer consultation in a group context – or "peer group consultation" - as an alternative to customary forms of professional development.
