Research Critical Analysis of a Journal Article

The purpose of this assignment is to allow you to practice the critical analysis of the contents of research articles. When you identify a research article, you want to begin by assessing whether the source of the article is scholarly and current. Once you have verified these elements, it is important to determine what the researchers were attempting to investigate, how the study was carried out, and what the outcomes were.

For this Assignment, you will critically examine the elements of a scholarly article. Because you will need to choose research articles that represent each type of methodology when you create your Final Project Annotated Bibliography, it is essential for you to understand the contents of a research article.

To Prepare

  • Review the media programs and blog found in the Learning Resources which will introduce you to the critical elements of a scholarly article, how to identify them, and how to read scholarly articles.
  • Review the Kenny, M. C., & Winick,      C. B. (2000) article found in the Learning Resources. You will use this article to complete this Assignment.
  • Review the Scholarly Article Content Analysis Preparation Guide, the Scholarly Article Content      Analysis Worksheet including the briefcase conceptualization found in the      Learning Resources and consider the “client” for any counseling implications. Note: You will use this Worksheet to complete this Assignment.

Assignment

  • Complete the Scholarly Article      Content Analysis Worksheet for the Kenny and Winick (2000) article.
  • Analyze the contents of the article and apply the findings to the case conceptualization included in the worksheet.
  • Critically analyze the article  and identify all components:
    • Is the article scholarly?
    • What is the problem/purpose?
    • What is(are) the research question(s)?
    • Who are the participants?
    • What are the ethical/cultural considerations?
    • What data /information was collected from participants?
