A central activity of our Gatherings is small group discussions on different topics related to our theme of transforming social work. These discussions tend to be spirited and stimulating often going in directions not envisioned by the participants. As a way of broadening and extending some of these discussions, we have selected two of our topics from the 2016 Gathering for participation by visitors to this site.

Each topic’s description is followed by a summary of the group’s discussion. You are invited to respond to any aspect of the topic or the group’s discussion or to raise new questions or issues.

We look forward to your participation!
