In counseling, much of the social justice scholarship and discourse is centralized around a general and singular conceptualization of social justice. In this manuscript, we review interdisciplinary social justice literature as a means of synthesizing and augmenting the counseling literature. Because the profession’s literature has yet to investigate and expand the operationalization of social justice robustly, we present social justice as a multiplistic phenomenon in need of further attention and offer suggestion for next steps.
