Discussion – Week 2

Research Applied to Practice

As a counselor, you have the potential to work with a variety of client populations and mental health issues. Even the most seasoned clinicians have an ethical responsibility to stay abreast of the most current trends in the field. A great source of information is professional counseling literature. It gives you access to up to date empirical evidence and treatment options.

For this Discussion, you will make your first effort to review a peer-reviewed, scholarly article and consider how the information can help you shape the course of treatment for an identified client.

To Prepare

  • Review the four Final Project      Case Studies found in the Learning Resources for this week and select a      case study for this Discussion based on your counseling specialization You      will have the option to use the same case study for your final project or      choose a different one.
  • Choose one client in the case      study and one mental health issue that you would address in counseling.
  • Choose one intervention you are      interested in learning more about to work with the issues you identified      in the case study you selected.
