Ecological Considerations and School Counselor Advocacy with LGBT Students
The school counseling literature contains little research and practice-based scholarship to support school counselors’ work with LGBT youth within school contexts, which may be at odds with the ethical and professional responsibilities of the school counselor. This article adopts an ecological framework to help school counselors navigate potential ethical issues when working with and advocating on behalf of LGBT students. Ecological and systemic recommendations are outlined to help strengthen the ethical practice of school counselors.
