Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v35 n3 p281-289 Sep 2010
The authors explore how supervisors may support the development of social justice consciousness for group leader supervisees, the role of the supervisor in generating social justice awareness and discussing social justice topics, and supervision that supports group leaders in addressing the challenges and opportunities related to social justice issues in group work. The authors present examples from a 10-week supervision group of 6 doctoral students who were leading personal growth groups for master's students in the group counseling course.
