“Fostering Counselor Development Utilizing a Social Justice Lens in Supervision”
As the counseling field has working to address historical issues of inequities, discrimination, and marginalization, it is imperative to continue the exploration of counselor development and its impact. Counselor identity development is crucial to the work of counselors, as it informs counselors' work with their clients (Moss et al., 2014).
Moreover, supervision is a critical component of counselor development. Currently, the ACES Best Practices in Clinical Supervision (ACES, 2011) details how supervisors should approach supervision with counselors. While the document does address diversity and multicultural issues, it is limiting on how to effectively work with counselors given recent compounded issues such as the pandemic and social injustices. The focus of this presentation is to focus on how to utilize a social justice lens in supervision to aid in counselor development.
From the time of registration, you have six months to access the coursework.
