- Will you engage in action research in your community? YES
- Will you will be asked to help write a grant or to administer one? NO
- Will you assist with the collection and analysis of data at your site in order to demonstrate your agency’s effectiveness? YES
- Will you adapt counseling programs described in published efficacy studies for use in your own community? YES

ADD HELP for this Paper
I have been a part of two different studies one is called a DASA this study is a current on going study for teens. This study pertain to teens and depression in the inter city for children ages 12-17. Right now I complete the surveys with each client, and their teacher that comes to our practice. When working at beachbrook agency I complete a lot of different studies that pertain to children with mental illness. I have seen a lot of different programs at the agency that I work at that I would like to do a evaluation on. As for research yes I would like to become a part of mental illness research I just do not know how. As of now I see research being part of my profession if a research study is being done and I can be a part by doing the surveys like a entry level researcher for now, once I am a therapist for about 3 years I can see myself advancing in research. I need mach more knowledge, experience, and practice.
