Integrating Social Justice Advocacy with National Standards of Practice: Implications for School Counselor Education
Dixon, Andrea L.; Tucker, Catherine; Clark, Mary Ann
Counselor Education and Supervision, v50 n2 p103-115 Dec 2010
Social justice in the education of all K-12 students begins with school counselors; preparing school counselors as advocates and leaders who can implement these principles in U.S. schools begins with counselor educators. Suggestions for intentional preparation of school counselors to be social justice advocates in schools by integrating the principles of the National Center for Transforming School Counseling with the American School Counselor Association National Model for School Counseling Programs (2005) and the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs "2009 Standards" are described. Ideas for educating school counselors as effective advocates in the context of specific training experiences throughout counselor training programs are provided.
