A summary of each of the journal articles

Journal Article Critique
In this assignment, you will critically evaluate research studies in the field of professional counseling. For this assignment, you will search the South University Library databases to find two peer-reviewed research articles (not more than five years old) related to professional counseling. Articles from the Journal of Counseling & Development or Counseling Psychology Quarterly would be most appropriate. Other sources, such as the text (other than as supporting citations), Wikipedia, and other online sources will not be accepted. You will read and analyze both articles and create a synopsis.

In your synopsis, you will include:

A summary of each of the journal articles
The main points discussed in each of the journal articles and how they relate to the week’s course and text readings
Your thoughts and perspectives regarding the concepts covered in each of the journal articles

The 21st century has witnessed a drastic transformation in professional school counseling, fueled by calls for social justice and educational equity and characterized by a movement toward collaboration, advocacy, leadership, and systemic change to promote academic success for all students. The authors describe how this transformation is aligned with an ecological perspective, provide an overview of the basic tenets of ecological thinking, and take a first step toward developing an intentional model of ecological school counseling.
