Professional School Counselors as Social Justice Advocates for Undocumented Immigrant Students in Group Work
Chen, Eric C.; Budianto, Lina; Wong, Kimberly
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v35 n3 p255-261 Sep 2010
Due to cultural and linguistic barriers, as well as a fear of deportation, undocumented immigrant students have remained an invisible group face in the existing school system. We provide specific strategies for school counselors to consider in advocating social justice and in facilitating empowerment of undocumented immigrant students through group work. A case vignette is presented to highlight challenges confronting undocumented immigrants and to offer strategies for school counselors as specialists in group work to address the unique educational and psychological needs of undocumented immigrant students.
