Ratts, Manivong J.; Hutchins, A. Michael
Journal of Counseling & Development, v87 n3 p269-275 Sum 2009
There is a rise in calls for counselors to be advocates for social justice. Counselors can meet the growing need to expand their roles to include advocacy by using the ACA (American Counseling Association) Advocacy Competencies (J. A. Lewis, M. S. Arnold, R. House, & R. L. Toporek, 2002). This article operationalizes the client/student level of the competencies and explores implications for the profession.
