I guess the thing I most take away from this article is that we need to do or homework when picking a grad school. If anyone had any notes on their grad school application journey, please post them in comments. A number of us will be applying this fall.

This is a wonderful explanation of what exactly a counselor does and doesn’t (or should and shouldn’t) do. I especially enjoyed the way he was able to incorporate his Christian beliefs and how they have shaped the person that he is, not the therapy that he practices. His insistence on not forcing his beliefs on his vulnerable clients is an admirable goal that I hope to emulate when my time comes.

This is another article that is a well written study summary, for those psych students who need to write such things… I have to write an annotated bibliography and two term papers this time around and will be posting more examples for those of us who might need them. If any of you have papers due this term, post the topics in the comments section. We can start a dialog.
