About the Practice Group

The purpose of the group is to build skills, and knowledge, and to provide a forum for discussing the social work perspective in using yoga and mindfulness practices in working with individuals and groups/communities.

The group will aim to engage in a broad range of activities drawing upon the expertise and interests of members such as: peer support, fostering networking and the opportunity to discuss professional issues for social workers with an interest and/or experience in yoga and mindfulness practices.

Sharing of contemporary and relevant information, resources (for clients and practitioners), research literature and continuing professional development opportunities. Plan, develop and provide advice to the AASW on continuing professional development activities or research that encourages the development and continuation of social work skills in the area of yoga and mindfulness practices (e.g. mental health, education, trauma, justice, aged care, asylum seekers and refugees).

The SWYMPG meetings and peer supervision sessions are proudly organised by the Social Work Yoga and Mindfulness Practice Group. To see more information or get involved visit the Social Work Yoga and Mindfulness Practice Group web page.
