Becoming Able to Work Together as a Central Challenge for a Successful Joint Practice—Experiences From a Qualitative Content Analysis Interpretation Group and Suggestions for Arranging Interpretation Group Sessions

Christoph Stamann, Markus Janssen


In this article we report on experiences from a qualitative content analysis interpretation group. Based on the claims and conceptions of "interpretation group" the challenges of developing a common practice and the capacity to work together as a group are described. Following this, we propose a guideline for the planning of and reflection on interpretation group sessions, which was developed as a consequence of the reported experiences.
