PCN 540 GCU Training of Mental Health Professionals & Counselor Dilemmas Discussion
I’m trying to learn for my Psychology class and I’m stuck. Can you help?
250-350 words each question, 1 resource each- Part 1 is not necessary to put in paper format, Q&A format is ok.
1. What are contemporary standards of practice that support the training of
mental health professionals in research methods? Give examples of
responsible ways to incorporate research into clinical practice. Be sure
to include references to justify your response.
2. Describe two dilemmas that counselor might face in attempting to plan
research with special populations (e.g., seriously mentally ill,
children, persons with disabilities, elderly, other members of a
marginalized group of people). Why are the ethical dilemmas? What
principles of ethical research are involved? How would you handle these
dilemmas in planning your research? Be sure to include references to
justify your responses.
Research is important in the field of counseling and psychology
because it can help us to understand the profession, shed light on the
theories and concepts, and to determine if the application of theories
and concepts actually improve mental health. Research is the best
mechanism for determining if something is effective and if so, what
parts and why.
Write a 750-1,000-word paper about the importance of research in the field of counseling.
Include the following in your paper:
- The relationship between research and counseling
- The roles and responsibilities of researchers in the counseling profession
- At least two scholarly resources to support your paper
