      McDonald, C. Peeper; Burch, Shakenya; Davis, Dazzmen (2021)
      Given the continued and steady growth of diversity within the United States population (Tran et al., 2016; Vespa et al., 2020) and the discourse around social injustice in all it's forms, it is more important than ever that the strengths-based approaches to counseling be infused with cultural responsiveness. As a result, cultural responsive approaches will be discussed as it relates to counseling and teaching to create social change. In this way, this presentation will not only educate the general public about how professional counselors and educators are utilizing best practices for serving traditionally minoritized and under-represented groups, it will illuminate advocacy action efforts perpetuated through cultural responsiveness.
