In Memoriam - Julianne Wayne

(October 2021) IASWG would like to mark the passing of Julianne Wayne, EdD, MSW. Julianne was a former treasurer of the IASWG board and a group work academic and practitioner. 

Julianne was a field education specialist and expert in social work group practice. She spent more than two decades at Boston University School of Social Work as director of field education and associate dean of academic affairs. She then moved on to the University of Connecticut School of Social Work, as associate professor and director of field education. She was widely published in the areas of social work education, field education and social group work practice. Julianne was able to integrate these academic arenas in the co-authored book (with Carol Cohen), Group Work Education in the Field, which was published cooperatively by Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) and International Association for Social Work with Groups (IASWG).  Julianne won the 2019 National Association of Social Workers’ Connecticut Chapter Lifetime Achievement Award.
