'Counselling psychologists often focus on clients' inner conflicts and avoid getting involved in the clients' environment. This handbook encourages counselling psychologists to become active participants in changing systems that constrain clients' ability to function... Besides actual programs, the contributors cover research, training, and ethical issues. The case examples showing how professionals have implemented social action programs are particularly valuable... [T]his book provides an outline for action, not only for psychologists, but also for social workers, politicians, and others interested in improving the lot of disadvantaged populations. Summing up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, professionals' - W. P. Anderson, Emeritus Professor, University of Missouri-Columbia, CHOICE The Handbook for Social Justice in Counseling Psychology: Leadership, Vision, and Action provides counselling psychology students, educators, researchers, and practitioners with a conceptual road map of social justice and social action that they can integrate into their professional identity, role, and function.

The examples in this Handbook explore a wide range of settings, with diverse issues, and reflect a variety of actions. The book concludes with a chapter reflecting on future directions for the field of counselling psychology beyond individual and traditional practice to macro-level conceptual models.
