The intergroup dialogue (IGD) process involves individuals and facilitators with diverse social identities intentionally coming together to explore divergent and shared values and experiences. It is widely accepted that IGD serves as a meaningful and transformative process for individuals with diverse social identities; yet, professional understanding of the various applications of IGD remains minimal. This article summarizes existing IGD literature, and calls for specific research efforts which hold promise for deepening the understanding of IGD in the field of counseling.
