Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop an abstracted theory concerning how counseling and counseling psychology leaders and educators engage in and enact socially just and culturally responsive leadership in professional association and higher education contexts. This grounded theory study included 18 participants with a range of social locations and professional leadership experiences in counseling and counseling psychology associations and higher education. Findings from this study were analyzed and are presented using the Straussian tradition of grounded theory. We discuss implications for counseling leadership, training, and development; social justice, cultural responsivity, and advocacy; and future research.
