When counselors work in the context of poverty, consideration of the impact of social class inequality in clients' lives is essential to effective practice—as is the impact of inequality within the institutions and agencies where that practice takes place. In this chapter, the authors present the conceptualization of social class inequality from which they work, and then profile the implications for counselors practicing in schools, college counseling centers, and community-based organizations.
