Title: A Day of Service at ACA 2018: Counseling is Rooted in Advocacy
Presenter: Kim Lee Hughes, University of Texas at San Antonio
The counseling profession is unique from other mental health professions because it is rooted in advocacy. It is not enough to assist our individual clients and students (micro-level), we must improve the context of their environment (meso-level) and encourage them to improve society (macro-level). I am the Vice President for African American Concerns with the Association of Multicultural Counseling & Development (AMCD), let’s discuss ways you can advocate at the 2018 ACA Conference in Atlanta.
· Participants will learn a definition for advocacy in counseling and counselor education
· Participants will examine intersectionality issues and the impact of those identities on their service
· Participants will learn how to start an advocacy agenda rooted in their intersectionality
