2018 Group Work Camp in Lithuania

Social Work with Groups: From Trauma to Hope
October 12 – 14th, 2018

Thanks to International Association for Social Work with Groups (IASWG), the Group Work Camp became a tradition which happens in USA, Canada, and Europe. This unique event offers an opportunity for professional social workers, scientists and students to share their ideas, skills, and experience. And its remarkable atmosphere contributes to creating a space for multifaceted communication and different culture cognition. Already for the second time in Europe, the Group Work Camp will take place in Lithuania, organized by the Lithuanian chapter (NSDGA) together with IASWG. During this year’s camp, the topic of focus will be on the recovery from psycho-social trauma. It is nowadays important to discuss such sensitive subject, as the Lithuanian nation has survived the Soviet occupation regime and exile. Traumas, which had been experienced during the childhood or other age, can still influence our own personalities and lives as the ones of our clients.


Workshops and other activities will be led by the experts in social work with groups from different countries (USA, Great Britain, Lithuania, Netherlands, etc.). The experience gained during the seminar will be valuable both for beginners and more advanced social workers, as well as for other professionals too. We warmly invite you to go on this journey of experiences together!
