Social group work unites individuals, groups, and communities in times of struggle and times of

success. The positive impact of group intervention becomes even more apparent and powerful when

persons are confronted by extraordinary circumstances that cause social isolation, grief and loss,

trauma, or despair during a global health emergency such as COVID-19. This book focuses on social

group work interventions shared by scholars at the International Association for Social Work with

Group's 41st and 42nd Annual Symposia, highlighting social group work done by group work experts

from Africa, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States. Chapters appear in English (with

one in French), and focus on the spirit of group work in building global connections to

restore hope in a fragmented world.

This book celebrates social group work interventions from across the globe, interventions focused on:

assessing community needs; building partnerships between academic and professional communities;

evaluating group work; and facilitating interventions to nurture hope, community, and belonging

during times of global despair. Chapters center on global aspects of diversity, equity, inclusion, and

social justice interventions to explore practical applications for incorporating social

group work clinical practice within community and governmental organizations, as well as academic

settings. Readers will find these interventions to be timeless in offering hope and the ability to build a

sense of belonging and community.

This book should be of interest to anyone who is practicing, studying, or researching group work in the

field of social work or other related disciplines. Each chapter leads us through an exciting examination

of various challenges facing social group workers who engage with individuals, groups, and communities

to provide remedy and resolution through group work.
