An article from a recent (within the last seven years) issue of the Journal of Counseling Psychology, The Counseling Psychologist, The European Journal of Counseling Psychology, Counseling Outcome Research and Evaluation, Counseling & Psychotherapy Research, Counseling Psychology Review or Counselling Psychology Quarterly. The article should describe specifically an experimental manipulation (meaning that the study is a true experiment with an easily identifiable independent and dependent variable) by the researchers.
Prepare a 1–3 page summary of the article in your own words including specifics regarding the overall purpose of the research in question, a clear statement of the researcher’s hypothesis, details regarding the study methodology, and pertinent results of the manipulation. Also include your personal opinion of the work. Should it be repeated/ how can it be improved? What was your overall impression of the work? What are the implications of the study for the practice of counseling psychology? Be sure to cite the article appropriately at the end of your review. Papers should be typed, double-spaced, and formatted according to APA style.
