Underscoring the Need for Social Justice Initiatives Concerning the Sexual Objectification of Women
Szymanski, Dawn M.; Carr, Erika R.
Counseling Psychologist, v39 n1 p164-170 Jan 2011
In this article, we emphasize the need to continually think outside the traditional therapy box in ways that we can intervene (and empower clients to intervene) to more directly address social problems, such as the sexual objectification of women, and to develop our own and our students' advocacy skills to intervene at the level of organizations, processes, systems, and social policy. In addition, we encourage psychologists to actively take steps to increase the ways in which they turn their social justice agendas into action.
