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.
