This book offers a vivid collection of chapters for anyone involved in group work education or training at any level.

The collection combines a range of theoretical and ethical insights with a pragmatic approach to building competence in day to day interventions with groups across many settings. Whether you work in a university or a workplace setting, you will find value in these diverse chapters, each accompanied by an updated commentary to emphasise the continuing relevance of the approach.  Such studies can inspire and sustain developing group workers in their efforts to apply their knowledge in the field.

We have curated this selection from the annual Proceedings of the IASWG Symposium. This annual event offers a unique range case studies from around the world. Reaching back to the published chapters contained in Symposium Proceedings, the editors identified 15 papers that exemplify the IASWG’s enduring emphasis on enhancing education for group work.

 There is much here which to support your efforts to inspire and sustain the important work of your students. (See overleaf for full contents
