In this article we describe dynamic structures and relationships that arise in the internal space of groups, a space which materializes from the unconscious internal world of each group member and within the group as a whole. We use keys and doors as metaphors to explicate our understanding of the internal dynamics. We give examples of how these metaphors can be used to understand the structure, the function and the relationships within the group. The possible connections of these ideas to other theoretical frameworks are discussed.
