Self-Advocacy as a Means of Owning the Social Contract.
Brophy, Michael C.; And Others
The purpose of this paper is to report on the role of advocacy in the urban milieu. It explores the following areas: (1) history and current status of advocacy; (2) review of some advocacy efforts; and (3) significance of the Advocate Counseling Model, a legal and therapeutic counseling model to help people to advocate for themselves. It is of vital concern to those working and participating in the urban education arena that they be appraised of this emerging area of advocacy and self-advocacy, since one of the crucial questions of the 1970's is: How well are current theories and practices equipped to handle the increasing complexity of urban educational problems?
