Group Work in Challenging Times:
Creative Strategies for Facing Change
International Association for Social Work with Groups
In an increasingly adversarial and complex world that affects our lives on so many levels, group work has taken on an even greater importance. Those of us committed to group work know what a powerful resource it can be for addressing and often healing the misunderstandings and conflicts that underlie difference in all its forms. IASWG exists, and our mission as group workers, is to keep group work wisdom and practice alive and thriving so that people, groups, communities, and the planet can change, survive, and flourish.
The International Association for Social Work with Groups, co-sponsored by the New York University Silver School of Social Work, invites group work students, practitioners, researchers, faculty, agency administrators, community workers and activists, and group workers from various professional disciplines, to submit proposals for presentations:
- Presentations are 30 or 60 minutes; comprised of didactic learning interactive discussion, or skill building with an experiential component.
- Posters are visual representations of research, practice, or training initiatives and are displayed at designated times during the Symposium.
Proposals may be submitted in English, French, Spanish or German, and sessions at symposium may be conducted in these languages as well.
