ASGW will hold its biennial conference February 9- February 11, 2024, at the One Ocean Resort & Spa in Atlantic Beach, Florida. The conference theme is “Stronger Together: Research, Reinvention, & Reconnection in Group Work.” Group workers around the world have risen to the myriad challenges of the past few years to reimagine ways to build and sustain connection and community.

This conference will highlight innovative research, outstanding group practice, and experiential group work in its many forms.
