Abstract

This article is based on the presentation on implementing multicultural social justice leadership strategies in counselor education programs. The George Mason University’s Counseling and Development Program was used as an example to illustrate how to successfully infuse multicultural social justice values into an entire graduate counselor training program. The article is written from two perspectives: 1) faculty’s discussion on the development and establishment of a multicultural social justice counseling program, and 2) current and past students’ viewpoints of the impact of the multicultural social justice training program on their personal and professional lives. Recommendations are also suggested to assist counseling and psychology programs on the implementation of multicultural social justice leadership strategies.
