Tuesday, November 4, 2014
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST
Counseling embraces the values of leadership and advocacy, yet there continues to be a professional imperative for more effectively translating our philosophical tenets into action. This presentation will synthesize theory and research related to community engagement and advocacy. It will champion counselor community engagement as the catalyst for excellence in how we as counselors enact the values of leadership and advocacy. Strategies for enhancing the impact counselors can have on clients, families, and systems through community engagement will be overviewed based on the existent research. Participants will be encouraged to explore how they can enhance their engagement in their communities through four primary roles: scholar, advocate, leader, and steward. The emphasis of the presentation will be on translating the values of leadership and advocacy into the action of community engagement.
- To expand awareness and understanding of counselor community engagement that is grounded within a resonant and servant leadership paradigm.
- To engage in self-analysis and reflection coupled with community mapping.
- To identify strategies for enacting social justice and advocacy through leading change and partnership models.
