Each student will critically compare and contrast two of counselling theories that we have covered in this class:
1. Cognitive Behavioural Theory (CBT)
2. Person-centred Theory (PCT)
The focus of the paper needs to be on counselling skills and interventions of a good theory. Please use these elements to form the major APA headings in your paper. Subheadings should also be included. Use the provided rubric to guide the outline of the paper.
Your Theoretical Comparison should be between 10 – 12 double-spaced pages excluding title page and reference pages. The course instructor will not read theoretical content after page 12. This paper does not require an abstract, a table of contents, or an appendix.
You must have at least five (5) current (last ten years), peer- reviewed resources for each of the theories of counselling chosen to ensure adequate coverage of the topic (at least ten (10) recent, peer-reviewed sources).
Quality of Writing:
It is imperative you have a very good writing style and follow APA format as you will be marked on these variables (APA manual, 6th edition).
