Counselor Education Search Tips

Use each database's thesaurus or subject headings list to identify the best wording for your topic. For example, PsycINFO uses:

  • Occupational Guidance (NOT "career counseling")
  • Multicultural Counseling or Cultural Sensitivity (NOT "cultural awareness")

To find articles written outside of the United States, search "counselling" (British spelling) as was as "counseling" (American spelling). 

Need to find empirical articles? Below is a guide that tells you what they are and how to find them:

Using ProQuest Databases (including ERIC and PsycINFO)

Using Penn State and General Search Tools
