Advocacy and Leadership | Diversity and Multicultural TracksAdvocating Social Justice & Educating Future Social Change AgentsPresented by Devona M. Stalnaker-Shofner, EdD, LPC, NCCLike many people, when faced with the recent horrific and senseless deaths of unarmed Black men and women, I found myself asking not only “why is this happening?” but the more important question of, “what can I do?” My response to the recent injustices was to gather students at my university into cohorts to begin their development as change agents. I set up subsequent town halls that met virtually to specifically discuss topics relevant to their growth such as understanding and critically examining white supremacy, systemic racism and oppression, and ways to cultivate meaningful change. We then separated into cohorts based on students’ level of social justice development, and ability for meaningful introspection and reflection. The purpose of these meetings was to shift from cognition to understanding, from reflections to action, from a moment to a movement. The hope is to present a conceptual and procedural thesis to provide educators, supervisors, and practitioners with practical programmatic steps to help students to become informed, insightful, and active change agents advocating for their clients, the profession?.Creating School-Based Mental Health Collaborations in Rural Communities, Tracie Rutherford Self, PhD, LMHC & Eran Hanke, PhD, LMHC
