Subject- Theories of Counselling assignment help
The work must be fully referenced with in-text citations and a reference list at the end. We recommend you work with your Academic Writing Guide to ensure that you reference correctly. You will find a link to this document on the main page of every subject in the 'Assessments' section. Correct academic writing and referencing are essential tasks that you need to learn. We recommend a minimum of six references.
References are assessed for their quality. You should draw on quality academic sources, such as books, chapters from edited books, and journals. Your textbook can be used as a reference, but not the Study Guide and lecturer notes. We want to see evidence that you are capable of conducting your own research. Also, in order to help markers determine students’ understanding of the work they cite all in-text references (not just direct quotes) must include the specific page number/s if shown in the original.
Researching: You can search for peer-reviewed journal articles, which you can find in the online journal databases and which can be accessed from the library homepage. Reputable news sites such as The Conversation, online dictionaries and online encyclopedias are acceptable as a starting point to gain knowledge about a topic. Government departments, research institutes such as the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), international organisations such as the World Health Organisation (WHO) and local not-for-profit organisations such as the Cancer Council are also good resources.
Formatting: The assessment MUST be submitted electronically in Microsoft Word format. Other formats may not be readable by markers, and students may be asked to resubmit. Please be aware that any assessments submitted in other formats will be considered LATE and will lose marks until it is presented in Word.
Plagiarism: All sources of information need to properly be acknowledged. Please refer to the plagiarism website on Blackboardi. By clicking the 'Upload this file' button you acknowledge that you have read, understood and can confirm that the work you are about to submit complies with the Flexible and Online plagiarism policy that is available on the Torrens University website. Like other forms of cheating plagiarism is treated seriously. When lecturers suspect plagiarism, they will complete an Academic Integrity form and send it to the AI officer who will then contact students and ask them to prove that it is their own work.
Word Count: Marks will be deducted for failure to adhere to the word count – as a general rule you may go over or under by 10% than the stated length.
Late Submissions: Students are advised that any submissions past the due date incur a 10% penalty per day, calculated from the total mark e.g. a task marked out of 30 will incur 3 marks penalty per day.
