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. Social justice advocacy has always been at the heart of group work and continues to play a prominent role as we incorporate anti-oppression principles into our collective practice and research. This conference will highlight innovative research, outstanding group practice, and experiential group work in its many forms. 

Sessions will be offered in several formats, including 3-hour pre-conference institutes (introductory or advanced sessions); a 1.5-hour experiential process group pre-conference institute session;  50-minute interactive/educational sessions; 30-minute research, case study/ethical dilemma/consultation presentations; and 30-minute poster sessions.

All presenters are expected to be available to present sessions in-person on their assigned date and time.
