The need for group counseling services for homeless adults is increasing with recent economic and natural disasters, representing crises that exacerbate the ongoing financial and social marginalization of this population. To address their needs, Emancipatory Communitarianism (EC; Prilleltensky, 1997) is suggested for group counselors working to promote critical consciousness, a strengths orientation, self-determination, communal responsibility, and advocacy for the homeless who experience oppression through various forms of social injustices. This article will outline the underlying principles of this approach and provide key strategies for implementing EC in a group counseling setting with homeless adults. (Contains 1 table.)
