Title

Advocating for BIPOC Counseling Trainees Through Fostering Belonging

Conference Strand

Social Change, Leadership, and Advocacy

Abstract

Counselor Education programs historically consist of majority White students and faculty, which can lead to the unintentional oppression of counselor trainees of color at a macro and micro level (Sue et al., 2009). This presentation highlights why it is vital for counselor education programs to advocate for their trainees by developing, establishing, or expanding programs geared towards fostering a sense of belonging to alleviate some of the barriers that counselor education trainees, specifically minoritized counselors trainees, may face.
