My expressed views are not necessarily those of the counseling profession.

Here is a PDF of a book-length collection of essays and poems originally published on the blog with some narrative chapters to integrate the whole. Download an electronic copy of "Shine: Weaving a Contemporary Web"
The American Counseling Association Code of Ethics for counselors reads, "Counselors...work toward removal of systemic barriers or obstacles that inhibit client access, growth, and development." Courtland C. Lee in the 7th edition of the ACA Ethical Standards Casebook, goes on to write that promoting social justice is a core professional value and:
Social justice involves promoting access and equity to ensure full participation in the life of a society, particularly for those who have been systematically excluded on the basis of race/ethnicity, gender, age, physical or mental disability, education, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, or other characteristics of background or group membership. Social justice is based on a belief that all people have a right to equitable treatment, support for their human rights, and a fair allocation of societal resources.
