SOCIAL WORK WITH GROUPS SYMPOSIUM
International Association of Social Work with Groups (IASWG)
June 5 – 8, 2019: NYU Kimmel Center
At the IASWG Symposium, co-sponsored by the NYU Silver School of Social Work, attendees will enjoy many scholarly presentations and events addressing group work practice, teaching, and research related to a variety of practice settings and populations given by social group work experts from around the world. IASWG believes it is: “Time for Group Work.” We need to find ways to become inclusive, to celebrate our differences and to generate a powerful sense of togetherness. There has never been a more urgent time to bring communities together towards a mutual understanding and a respect, not just for humanity, but for the planet as a whole. Social groupwork can create security where there is uncertainty, a feeling of belonging where there is alienation, and a vehicle for positive communal action where there is a sense of helplessness. It has been used to unite and give voice to people in the aftermath of conditions that seemed beyond repair. Through social groupwork, nations, communities and individuals can repair.
