This study accounts for supervisees´and supervisors´ experiences of a group format for supervision, as well as the impact of the supervisors´style in a two-year training program consisting of weekly theoretical seminars and group supervision. The training program was based on psychodynamic theory and the prospective supervisors all had a patient in psychotherapy. Both supervisees and supervisors reported that the group format was experienced as particularly suitable for this training level. The "super-supervisors" style was considered as important, as he or she served as a role model for the supervisors in training. The shift of role from psychotherapist to supervisor was especially emphasized.
