Social Justice at the Microlevel: Working with Clients' Prejudices
MacLeod, Bailey P.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v41 n3 p169-184 Jul 2013
Social justice is considered the 5th force in counseling and has largely been aimed toward advocating for oppressed individuals and groups by creating change in the societal structures that maintain oppression. However, there is a lack of information for counselors who work with clients who oppress others. This article addresses assessment, conceptualization, and ethical considerations when White clients express racial prejudices in counseling and how it aligns with the goals of social justice.
