Camps aren’t just for kids: The power of group work as an adult at IASWG Group Work Camp
AbstractAbstract: This is a reflection of an emerging professional social worker on her development of understanding groupwork through experiences at camp growing up in north-central United States as well as attending the International Association for Social Work with Groups’ inaugural Group Work Camp in 2009. The experience of Group Work Camp was such a meaningful experience of the power of groups, she took on a leadership role in planning Group Work Camp 2013. This reflection also describes the importance of ice breaker activities and how they connect with groupwork principles. It details one specific ice breaker, chosen intentionally to lay the groundwork for group cohesion at Group Work Camp 2013.
