As discussed throughout this book, theories of leadership and research support exemplary leadership practices. ere also is a well-developed body of literature on theories of counseling supervision, and several authors have written about the need for supervisors to address issues of culture in both supervisory and counseling processes (Chang, Hays, &Shoner, 2003; Gloso & Durham, 2010; Hays & Chang, 2003). More recently, there has been an increased focus in the professional literature on using supervision to help professional counselors develop the skills necessary to recognize and address societal factors that impact the mental health needs of clients, especially those from marginalized groups. In this chapter, we discuss ways in which counseling supervision can be used to facilitate the development of leadership and advocacy skills in professional counselors.
