The editors of Ata: Journal of Psychotherapy Aotearoa New Zealand asked if I (Margot Solomon) would write some reflections on the group experiences at the NZAP conference this year. I invited the small group facilitators to write something of their experience. This paper describes some of what happened and how that has been understood by a few of us that held roles at the conference. I begin by describing the preparation for the conference; this is followed by the reflections from some of the small group facilitators and a representative from the Conference Organising Committee. I then offer my experience and thoughts, and end with a brief discussion of key themes present in what has been written. Waitara I tonoa au, a Mākere Solomon, e ngā ētita o te Hautaka Whakaora Hinengaro o Aotearoa kia huri ki te tuhi i ētahi whakahokinga whakaaro mō ngā wheako rōpū i te hui o tenei tau a te NZAP. Nāku i tono atu ngā kaiarataki o ngā rōpū iti kia tuhia mai ētahi wheako ō rātou. Ko ēnei ētahi o ngā whakaāhuatanga o ngā arahanga ake me te huanga ake o te arotau e te tokoiti o mātau i whai wāahi ki ērā mahi i te hui. I tīmatahia e au mai i whakaritenga mō te hui, kātahi ka huri ki ngā whakaatanga mai a ētahi o ngā kaiarataki rōpū iti me ōku whakaaro. Hai whakakapi ka huri ki te whakarāpopoto i ngā matapakitanga o ngā kaupapa matua kua tuhia nei.
