Articles

IASWG and IASWG Massachusetts are working together with members all over the world to begin to coalesce and archive materials of interest to our members, both new and seasoned. Articles will be made open access and will include occasional journal articles courtesy of Taylor & Francis, Whiting & Birch and Routledge. As an organization with some of the seminal practitioners and academics in our membership, we wish to share this practice knowledge with the whole of the group work community. Because as we learn, we grow, and as we grow, we become better equipped for the tasks group workers face every day.
