Product Description

The importance of advocacy in counseling is explored through the framework of the ACA Advocacy Competencies in this inspiring new book that brings social justice to the forefront of the profession. Experts in the field discuss how counselors, counselor educators, and students can use the ideals in the Competencies with diverse client populations (people of color, clients living in poverty, people with disabilities, LGBTQ individuals, older persons); across various counseling settings (K–12, private practice, colleges and universities, counselor education and supervision); and in multiple specialty areas (group work, career counseling, rehabilitation, substance abuse counseling). Detailed examples in each chapter help to guide counselors as to when individual empowerment counseling alone is appropriate, or when situations call for advocacy on behalf of clients or their communities within the public arena or political domain. Thought provoking and
engaging, this book is an invaluable resource for teaching and course work and an imperative call for all counselors to participate in social justice and systems change to provide the best services for their clients.
