Working With Marginalized Communities
- Your advocacy statement should be one to two paragraphs in length. A meaningful statement requires more than a simple sentence stating your beliefs or aspirations. Your advocacy statement should be a tool to begin dialogue between you and your clients/students to explain the ways you work in your role as a counselor to address the needs of clients/students who may be marginalized on the basis of some aspect of their social identity.
Describe how your clients or students might be challenged by various sociocultural factors on their career development. Then, in at least 2 pages,
- Describe three culturally sensitive ways in which you might apply career development theories while also addressing these socioculural factors.
- Include specific advocacy strategies to address the client’s/student’s needs at the appropriate levels.
You must cite at least 2 peer-reviewed articles to justify how you are addressing the sociocultural factors and the specific advocacy strategies you selected.
