Aim & Scope

Social Work with Groups is a unique quarterly journal of community and clinical practice, and an important reference publication for those in the social work profession who value and seek to understand the small group. The journal addresses the issues of group work in psychiatric, rehabilitative, and multipurpose social work and social service agencies; crisis theory and group work; the use of group programs in clinical and community practice; and basic group competencies for all social work professionals. The contributions reflect a sophisticated knowledge of the use of the group as a learning medium and a highly developed understanding of instructional technology in the teaching of social group work knowledge and skills.
Peer Review Policy: All research articles in this journal have undergone editorial screening and blind peer review, most often by at least two or three reviewers.
