Modern border conflict has become a universal term, a threat that invades our world and causes people to reconsider loyalties and divisions. Social work in international formations holds a deep humanitarian spirit, listening to the needs of those within communities in environmental crisis, cultural conflict or at risk of subordination with a universal mantra of social solidarity. I add my voice to the many social workers in practice, education and research supporting our Ukrainian and Russian colleagues within their home countries and across the world at this time of human discord. The critical question is how we translate this systemic awareness into tangible therapeutic response.
