Lamar Muro & Joel Muro
Online, anytime access to a pre-recorded webinar.
This webinar was recorded during our 2020 Virtual Counseling and Therapy Summit.
As counselors, we are charged to advocate for clients who face institutional barriers. Given the increased awareness of trauma-informed practices, how can we also assist clients with self-advocacy in their contexts of family, work, and community? As we become a trauma-informed profession, is there wisdom in the professional values and standards of counseling practice to guide us in navigating trauma-informed advocacy?
