Week 3 – Assignment
[CLOs: 2, 3]
Prior to beginning work on your annotated bibliography, review the instructions for your Final Paper, which are listed in Week Five.
Next, locate at least three scholarly sources from the university library applicable to the counseling interventions and behavior change models that you intend to reference in your final paper. Be sure to also include two scholarly sources that address external support and aftercare plans. Explain why these resources would be appropriate for your client avatar.
Submit a two- to three- page annotated bibliography with your five scholarly sources. Each source must include an APA formatted reference, as well as four to five well-developed sentences in which you summarize each source. Use scholarly sources (peer-reviewed journal articles, research studies, and government websites) from the university library that were published within the last five years. Popular internet sites such as Wikipedia are not considered scholarly sources. You will receive feedback on your annotated bibliography to help you make your Final Paper more effective.
