Social Justice Counseling: Toward the Development of a Fifth Force among Counseling Paradigms
Ratts, Manivong J.
Journal of Humanistic Counseling, Education and Development, v48 n2 p160-172 Fall 2009
A case is made to consider social justice as a fifth force complementary to the psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, existential-humanistic, and multicultural forces in counseling. This article explores how social justice is shifting the counseling paradigm and how the ACA (American Counseling Association) Advocacy Competencies (J. A. Lewis, M. S. Arnold, R. House, & R. L. Toporek, 2002) complement this movement. Implications are also discussed. (Contains 1 figure.)
