Counseling for Social Justice

Thought leaders examine social justice counseling from a global perspective in the latest edition of this pioneering book. Part 1 examines the historical and contemporary context of social justice counseling. Part 2 presents ideas for promoting social justice and challenging oppression and marginalization with individual clients and communities. Topics in this section include perspectives on peace, violence, and conflict; recommendations for global initiatives in school counseling; advocacy for decent work; promoting gender equity; fighting racism; and implementing social action strategies with LGBTQ+ communities, older people, people with disabilities, and undocumented immigrants. Part 3 contains chapters on the role of neuroscience in advancing social justice and infusing social justice perspectives in ethics, research, and counselor training.

“This third edition could not come at a better time given the current national and global political climates. Lee and his colleagues raise the bar, challenging counselors to move from simply understanding social injustice to engaging in actions that improve systemic inequities. The magnitude of this charge cannot be ignored. This text should be mandatory in every counselor education program in the United States and across the globe; the time is now. Counselors must take the lead by leaning in and changing the world one person at a time, one community at a time, and one nation at a time.”  —Colleen R. Logan, PhD, Fielding Graduate University

“Courtland Lee continues to be a leader in helping to advance social justice in the counseling profession. This book builds on previous editions by offering new and emerging strategies for implementing social justice with clients and communities. It pushes the limits of what is possible when counselors incorporate social justice into their practice.” —Manivong J. Ratts, PhD, Seattle University 

“This text provides crucial information on how counselors can engage in social justice work throughout their practice, research, and advocacy activities to not only become effective change agents but also transform how we see ourselves and the world.” —Anneliese A. Singh, PhD, University of Georgia
