Title of Presentation: Successful Integration of Social Justice Advocacy in Supervision
Abstract/Program Description: Although there is an extensive body of literature on counselor supervision, there is little attention given on infusing social justice advocacy into supervision. Social justice advocacy has received increased attention in the profession of counseling and is considered by some to be the fifth force of the profession. To ensure ethical counseling, it is crucial that counseling supervisors understand social justice advocacy in the context of counseling and how to apply this framework to their supervisees. Therefore, this presentation will engage the audience in a discussion regarding the intentional use of social justice advocacy skills in counselor supervision from the perspective of a counselor educator, doctoral student, and a master’s student.
