Task groups led by school counselors provide both opportunities and challenges for centering anti-oppression in such groups. We used the Principles of Anti-Oppression: A Critical Analytic Synthesis (Peters & Luke, 2022) to guide our thinking and a bioecological lens to situate school counselors as task group facilitators within the larger context. These two perspectives were useful when considering how school counselors, in their role as task group leaders/facilitators, can infuse anti-oppression and social justice into this aspect of their work.
