2017 IASWG NYC Symposium | June 7th to 10th at New York University
Group Work in Challenging Times: Creative Strategies for Facing Change
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.
