Students will develop a referenced Philosophy/Personal Theory of Counseling Paper reflecting your personal theoretical orientation/preference. Make sure each topic (given below) is addressed in the paper. Further, each topic should integrate concepts from the theories you have learned about across the semester (you do not have to stick with just one theory). The use of non-sexist and professional language is expected, and papers must be carefully proofread prior to submission. Guidelines regarding non-sexist language are available in the Publication Manual (6th Edition) of the American Psychological Association (APA).
Include at least 5 APA style citations (can include articles you read on Canvas, refereed journal articles you find suitable, or the textbook; do not cite websites). Be sure to adhere strictly to APA writing guidelines (6th ed.). APA style is expected, and points will be deducted for poor adherence. The length of the paper should be 7-8 pages [not including an APA style title page, abstract page and references page(s)]. See rubric at the end of the syllabus for detailed information.
This paper should be considered a work-in-progress which will reflect further personal and professional growth as you proceed through the program and enter the counseling profession.
