A Social Constructivist Approach to Preparing School Counselors to Work Effectively in Urban Schools
Martinez, Robert R.; Dye, Lacretia; Gonzalez, Laura M.
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v49 n4 p511-528 Nov 2017
In this article a social construction framework is used to improve the capacity of school counselors and trainees to work effectively with African American and Latina/o students in urban schools. Three key theoretical tenets of the social construction worldview are presented as a new lens for thinking about the "meaning-making" process of students in an urban school setting and how school counselors can support it. We offer activities to operationalize this theoretical point of view and implications for school counselor training and practice.
