Social Justice Mentoring: Supporting the Development of Future Leaders for Struggle, Resistance, and Transformation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this address, I honor my ancestors for their commitment to social justice. I pay tribute to my mentors and students who have inspired me to join with others to struggle for justice and liberation. I share stories of my journey and I encourage social justice mentors in counseling psychology to consider: (a) identifying core dimensions of social justice, (b) clarifying one's social justice position, (c) modeling social justice values and practices, (d) providing meaningful learning and training opportunities, (e) working to transform learning and training spaces, and (f) encouraging students and trainees to create mentoring networks.
