The Developing Group <- click for article details

We (Penny Tompkins and James Lawley) established a supervision group in January 1997 for facilitators using Clean Language and David Grove's Metaphor Therapy. In 2001 we changed the scope of the group to a regular forum for the exploration of new ideas in the field. We also changed the name to The Developing Group.

Our aim is to provide a setting where, within a clean approach:
  • leading-edge thinking can be applied in practical ways
  • we can go into greater depth on specific aspects related to Symbolic Modelling and other clean approaches
  • participants can develop their modelling skills and the ability to work systemically.

All the topics presented at the group are listed below.


The Developing Group is for people who use Symbolic Modelling and David Grove's Clean Language, Clean Space and Emergent Knowledge processes. Annual membership of the group is open to those who are personally recommended by a leading member of the Clean community, who have 10+ days training in Symbolic Modelling and who have maintained a fluency with Clean Language.

The Developing Group is not a training. We present a day on whatever we find interesting and worth researching. Participants do not know what the topic will be until we send out an email with background 'notes' a week or two in advance. These notes and the input from the day either form the basis for an article that is subsequently published or they remain a 'work in progress' paper. Click on the links below to go direct to the relevant paper or see the summaries following the table.
