Dear Student,
Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. As I understand it, in this particular task, you are being asked to work on a 2-page paper that explores narrative research with a focus on counselling. Now, the heading of your problem indicates that you are looking for an article that explores this topic, that it should be qualitative and that you are expected to show in your response that you understand qualitative research. I suggest using this simple outline:

1. About the Article - 100 words
2. Relevance of the study - 150 words
3. Study design - 150 words
4. Strengths and limitations of the design - 100 words
5. on the qualitative method's relevance as evidenced in the study - 100 words

This outline should yield around 600 words which should give you around 2 pages. As for citing within the APA rules, when citing in-text, use the this form - (Author Surname, year). As for listing your references, follow as such for books - Author (Year). Title. Publisher, for articles Author (year)."Article Title", in Journal Name, Vol. #, Issue #, pages, Publisher, URL (if any), date accessed (if with URL). For more on APA formatting, follow this link - http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/

You can also use the listed resources to further explore the topic. All the best and good luck with your studies.

Sincerely,
