Description: This 99-page resource describes a problem-based learning approach in which teams of student researchers provide evidence-based advice to fictional clients of a consulting firm (20 pages). Ready-to-use activity forms, assignment instructions, and team members’ role descriptions (33 pages) connect the content of the course to the APA Guidelines for the Undergraduate Psychology Major, Version 2.0.
