Your Assignment (in brief)

Your assignment is to find 3 peer reviewed research articles on an ethical issue in addiction counseling published within the prior 15 years (i.e. 2007 - Present).

You will join one of the topic groups (e.g.   Mandated Clients, Dual Relationships etc). You will be researching the ethical issues related to your topic, not how successful e.g. mandated treatment is).

Part II: After receiving feedback on your articles, submit a one page paper summarizing the key findings of one of the articles. Include the article citation in APA format and abstract again. 

Part III: Your group will give a presentation about the research findings of the articles you've read (and feedback on your summary) and how it will apply to your work as an addiction counselor.

  You will find a list of databases that are recommended to find research articles for this assignment under the Find Peer-Reviewed Articles tab.
