Start your Research by reviewing a few Search Tips and how to Identify Keywords. Then look for resources such as:

Find Articles

Articles from journals, magazines, and major newspapers are sources for information on recent counseling and family therapy studies. These can be found two ways: either by typing keywords about your topic in Central Search (Everything at CCSU option); or by accessing the subscription library databases. You can also search the online availability of influential counseling and family therapy journals by clicking on the eJournals tab on the library's website.  


Find Books

You can find a varied selection of print and online books about counseling and family therapy topics by typing keywords about your topic in Central Search (Catalog option). Books can provide detailed background and in-depth historical information about any given topic. 

Reference refers to books and resources such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, and handbooks. Go to these for definitions, shorter explanations, quick historical and biographical sketches. Add the word 'reference' to your search for these types of resources.


Find Internet Sources

The internet can provide a wealth of good information, especially from government sources and professional organizations. Always be sure to evaluate what you find on the internet.


Other helpful pages include tips on how to Evaluate and Cite Your Sources using APA, and how to Get Help.
