The fields of psychology, counseling, and education have played an important role in combating social injustice historically. However, it has been argued that current training models have de-emphasized social justice efforts in favor of remedial interventions. This presentation discusses the ways in which psychologists, counselors, and educators can serve as agents of social justice in their professional settings. Specifically, the importance of advocacy and public policy work is discussed. Advocacy skill sets and dispositions are presented along with recommendations for how research can have a greater impact on public policy.
