Counselor Education and Supervision Is Feminism Alive? Exploring the Feminist Identity of Counseling Students
Angela Holman and Marcy Douglass
Developmental feminism is invested in the concepts of inclusion, integration, equity, acceptance and growth. While incorporating cognitive developmental theoretical concepts, the intent of developmental feminism is to promote harmony and cohesion. Due to the social construction of personal identity this perspective allows individuals to examine their own feminist identity, development at their own unique developmental levels. It is the authors’ hope that insights developed through this process will reprise enthusiasm for feminism, anchor the importance of analyzing ones’ own feminist 314 identity, and inspire the inclusion of feminist principles in counselor education.
