The important need for a strong collaborative practice group in order for collaborative practitioners to operate successfully is often not fully acknowledged. A research project undertaken to examine the delivery of Collaborative Practice (CP) services in family law by the authors identified the various roles for collaborative practice groups and the support they offer practitioners. The research took an exploratory approach, investigating the experiences of private CP service providers in a major regional city in South West Queensland and in metropolitan Sydney, New South Wales. The research found that the role of the practice group was an essential aspect for maintaining and developing the professional learning community that is integral to a thriving community of collaborative practitioners.
