Parenthetical Style

"The most important thing to understand about positive psychology is that it is indeed science" (Ackerman, 2020, "Theory and Concepts" section).

"We are professionally accountable for the services we provide, seeking to ‘do no harm’ and following all relevant laws" (Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia [PACFA], 2017, p. 3). 

Avoid situations where the interests of the client are compromised by personal, professional or financial circumstances of the counsellor (PACFA, 2017).

Narrative Style

Ackerman (2020) asserts that "the most important thing to understand about positive psychology is that it is indeed science" ("Theory and Concepts" section).

Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) (2017) state that "we are professionally accountable for the services we provide, seeking to ‘do no harm’ and following all relevant laws" (p. 3).

PACFA (2017) recommend avoiding situations where the interests of the client are compromised by personal, professional or financial circumstances of the counsellor.
