This article serves as a summary of The Journal for Specialists in Group Work special issue on the application of Peters and Luke’s (2022) Principles of Anti-Oppression in group work. We provide observations of the ways special issue article authors, as experts in group work practice and research, applied the 10 principles across three types of group work (i.e. task, counseling, and psychoeducational; McCarthy et al., 2022; Ward, 2011) and within varied contemporary group work practice contexts (i.e. school counseling, college settings, online practice, teaching, supervision, research; Goodrich et al., 2023). Further, we identify themes in the ways that contributing authors collectively considered, evaluated, and used the Principles of Anti-Oppression in group work, provide commentary, note gaps, and discuss implications for future development.
