This paper describes a sibling support group that has flourished for over 3 years. The setting provides little more than a table and chairs. Storage space for supplies is limited to one drawer in a file cabinet. The children range from three to twenty years in age. Some of the participants attend only one meeting; others attend regularly. Despite the range in ages, lack of group stability, limited equipment and restricted setting, the program works. Basic assumptions, goals, techniques, and resources are presented and underlying issues are discussed.
