As preparation for completing the Signature Assignment, you will
prepare a brief annotated bibliography related to your selected personal
Model of MFT. An annotated bibliography is a very effective way to
explore the literature and have the effort produce a very useful
document for writing papers, doing research or creating a reference tool
for use in a MFT practice.
Some foundational tools that can be used, if needed (these were
included in MFT5101 as well), to understand how to find information
Please select at least five articles that address the Classic or
Postmodern Model upon which you choose to focus. Places to search
- The Gehart (2014) text (remember that you must find the original source of anything listed as sources in the text)
- the Northcentral Library databases (e.g., EBSCO Host, SAGE Knowledge, E-brary, etc. remember those that you tried in MFT5101)
- Google Scholar or another Internet search engine
- or any other search method that you choose
The articles should be from peer-reviewed journals and published
within the past five years. Submit an annotated bibliography that
includes these 5 entries. Choose articles that, taken together, will
assist you in writing the paper you are outlining this week and that is
due next week. All articles must be scholarly, as defined by the Academic vs. Popular Articles Resource in the Northcentral Library.
Note that each annotated entry must concisely
summarize key aspects of the article (study, literature review,
secondary analysis, etc.) e.g., participants, purpose, research design
and methods, data analysis, key findings and include a
thoughtful evaluation of the significance of the studys findings and
conclusions as they relate to the Classic or Postmodern Model about
which you will be writing. In order to write quality entries,
you must understand each studywhat the researchers did, why they did
it, and what they found and concluded. Be sure you paraphrase all content, following Northcentral Academic Integrity guidelines to insure that your work is your own.
Your annotated bibliography does not need to be lengthy, but it does
need to be informative and useful. The annotated bibliography is a
paragraph summarizing each piece of literature that you have chosen
related to your topic of interest.
Write a brief synopsis of the literature in your own words that
highlights the most relevant take home points. Essentially, each
annotation should address both 1) a brief synopsis of the content of the
given resource, and 2) a statement of the relevance of the given
resource within your topic of study. In other words, your annotations
should state, for each resource, what it says and why it is relevant to
your intended topic/research. The finished annotation should serve as a
detailed overview of the literature that reduces the need that you will
need to go back and re-read the entire article or chapter.
Start the annotation by giving the full reference for the article using APA formatting.
Summarize the article in a paragraph and include:
- Purpose of the article / study
- Sample and method of the study
- Key results
- Relevance of the study to your research
- If the article is a literature review or theoretical piece, aim to highlight 3-4 most significant take home points.
Do not use direct quotes the annotation should be written in your
own words. You do not need to use citation (no parenthetical citation)
in your paragraph because it is assumed that everything is from the
If you are unsure what to include in an entry, send a single
annotated bibliography entry and the original article to your professor
for a preliminary review.
Submit a paper comprised of at least 5 entries. There is no need to
put each entry on a new page. The APA citation will act as a separator
of the entries.
Your annotated bibliography should demonstrate thoughtful
consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course
and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic.
Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA
