FYI – A literature review is a summary of exiting research about a particular topic. It is usually organized so that the narrative includes both a summary of the research and synthesis of all of the studies. The summary recaps the important information of the source, and a synthesis is a re-organization of the information of multiple sources. Often times similarities and differences among the studies are pointed out; or pointed differences in results are discussed. Make sure you discussion is related to your research question.

The literature review will combine all 10 articles. Provide a summary and synthesis of the information of each article

The literature review should reflect your skills in literature searching, writing organization, and critical analysis and synthesis of information.

You must also provide an introductory paragraph as well as a concluding paragraph discussing the implications for social work practice.

Work with references provided. These are peer reviewed and all within the last 10 years.
