The second book to publish in Stylus's Actionable Research for Social Justice in Education series, this guidebook invigorates Student Affairs professionals and higher education faculty alike to create new approaches when discussing sensitive/controversial topics with their students. The intent of this text is to provide professionals with a critical social understanding of current social justice, social agency, reflection, and actionable knowledge offering new and successful pathways for practice.

In a collection of ten chapters, exceptional teachers, scholars and professionals provide a diverse and alternative lens through which to examine the intersection of social justice education and professional practice in our field. The text is organised by three overarching themes: Section 1: Existing Theories, Examining Claims and Proposing New Understandings in Professional Practice; Section 2: Concrete Tools and Safe Spaces for Practicing Difficult Dialogues in Professional Practice; and Section 3: Professional Development, Action Research and Social Agency.

Written for higher education and student affairs professionals, along with master's and doctoral students within the field of higher education, this book provides a framework with supported research of pedagogies and theories to enhance the professional development of its audience. The publication's content is centred on the comprehension of how to address social justice and agency issues, practicing those skills in safe spaces, and putting those skills into practice.

This book serves as a captivating resource of accurate research and analysis. The authors provide valuable tools that can be applied within any institutional department or classroom setting. The action-oriented research model provides strategies and frameworks for using social science research to engage in critical social and educational problem solving. The perspectives presented in this publication will further validate the necessity of college and universities to widen their moral and ethical lenses beyond understanding diversity and continue building multicultural competence and enriching campus communities.
