Anti-Racist Practices in Counselor Education

Published January 5, 2022

This fall, Dr. Caroline Lopez-Perry and Dr. Jake Olsen presented at the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES) conference in Atlanta. Their presentation, “Anti-Racist Practices in Counselor Education” focused on the importance of having structures in place in counselor education programs in order for school counselors to enter the field prepared to provide anti-racist school counseling programs and services. They discussed how CSULB’s school counselor education program has established a foundation of anti-racist systems and educational practices across multiple phases of our program. Additionally, they shared a two-pronged approach that consists of intentional reflection and implementation of anti-racist practices among faculty and development of anti-racist pedagogy.
