The practice of counseling centers on enhancing wellness and coping in the face of seemingly insurmountable circumstances. Over the past five years, new resources have been developed to help counselors further social justice by acknowledging and directly addressing these circumstances. The Advocacy Competencies model, adopted by the American Counseling Association, will be presented as a tool for social justice in counseling. Ethical issues associated with social justice counseling will also be explored.
