Upcoming International Conferences

In addition to planning to present and attend our IASWG Symposium, we encourage submission of group work-related abstracts to a number of international conferences. Feel free to share additional announcements for posting by email to [email protected]

CSWE Group Work Track

Please consider submitting an abstract to the US Council on Social Work Education's Annual Program Meeting, taking place in Denver, Colorado from November 12-15, 2020. Visit the APM website for conference and proposal submission details. 
As you know, presentations of workshops and papers at important conferences are a critical part of the process to ensure that Social Work with Groups has an essential and prominent place in Social Work Education and Practice.
New this year, we have 1-2 full, complimentary APM registrations that we have reserved for PhD students who volunteer. For more information, contact CSWE Group Work Track Co-Chair, Brian L. Kelly at [email protected].
VOLUNTEER TO REVIEW (Same deadline of February 24!):
We also hope you will consider becoming a reviewer for the Group Work Track. Please know we can only encourage volunteers and cannot recommend reviewers directly. All reviewers must be a current member of CSWE. For more information, view the Call for Proposals Reviewers.
You can check out the full conference details and the call for proposals on the APM website. Please circulate this information through your networks. We are happy to assist in this effort. Please email us any questions.
Thank you,
