Professional Counseling Excellence through Leadership and Advocacy provides readers with the knowledge, skills, and qualities to succeed as leaders and advocates throughout their careers.

Edited by leaders in counselor education and endorsed by Chi Sigma Iota, this text places leadership and advocacy in a historical context while strengthening the foundational knowledge and skills counselors need. The new edition integrates the Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies (MSJCCs) and applies them to a variety of counseling settings at both local and state levels. Chapters also address leadership and design of effective counselor education programs, curricular implications, supervision and consultation, and research directions.

The new edition is designed for counselor educators and supervisors and doctoral-level counselor education students who are studying leadership and advocacy as one of five core areas within the 2016 CACREP standards and for master’s level students and practitioners who are growing their leadership and advocacy skills.
