To begin, read the following articles (which can be accessed through the ProQuest database in the Ashford University Library): 

  • “Evidence-Based      Practice in Psychology: Implications for Research and Research Training”
  • “Practice-Based      Evidence: Back to the Future”

 After reading the articles listed above, select two of them.  Analyze the basic applied research within each of your two selected articles by answering the following questions:

  • What is      the main point-of-view in each article? 
  • What are      the primary assumptions each author makes?
  • Which      author are you inclined to agree with?  Support your choice with      scholarly reasoning and cite your evidence. 

You are required to include one peer-reviewed source that was published within the last five years to support your perspective.  You may not use any of the sources that were assigned for this course.
