Counselor Education Research Guide

Why use a Reference Source?

The Reference sources (below and at right) can provide useful overviews of topics including: developmental theories, counseling theories, psychopathology conditions, addictive substances, and biographical information. These sources are VERY useful for CLG501, CLG503, CLG519, and CLG547 papers/projects.
