Abstract

Despite multiple calls for social justice in counselor education in the past four decades, the frequency of social justice practices in counselor education remains unclear. In order to better understand social justice practices among counselor educators, it is useful to first understand counselor educator attitudes towards social justice. This manuscript presents the construction of the Counselor Educator Social Justice Attitudes Instrument, an instrument measuring counselor educator attitudes towards social justice. In this manuscript, we outline the rationale for the instrument, the development of the instrument, and a critical assessment of the instrument. The final 24-item instrument measuring counselor educator attitudes towards social justice is included. The final instrument is based on three factors accounting for 68.29% variance.
