This project provides an overview of college counseling research, theories, and practices published in the college counseling, student development, psychology, professional counseling, and college health literatures during the past ten years. The knowledge base informing campus mental health practice comes from several different psychological, counseling, and health professions. This project fills a gap by bringing the different literatures together and articulating important themes, findings, and remaining questions. On this website you can find our links to: a complete reference list of college counseling articles from related literatures spanning the past 10 years and organized by tables; an annotated bibliography; and a PowerPoint summary of the recent ACPA presentation. Additional material, including further annotated bibliography and analysis will be added through the remainder of 2011. Please contact Dr. Schwitzer at aschwitz@odu.edu or Dr. Burnett at dburnett@odu.edu if we can be of further assistance.
