Lorraine Guth, Brittany Pollard, and Hopeton Bailey, Department of Counseling, were part of the
Association for Specialists in Group Work’s Special Initiatives
Committee that created a new resource, titled “Ten Strategies to Intentionally
Use Group Work to Transform Hate, Facilitate Courageous Conversations, and
Enhance Community Building.”
The document can accessed and downloaded as a PDF.
Group workers can utilize these methods and resources to
promote diversity, equity, and inclusion among group members in all types of
groups and in various settings. These strategies provide a roadmap for
navigating the complex process of unifying diverse individuals in a way that
celebrates their commonalities and differences, while simultaneously fostering
difficult conversations in various group settings.
