Hello Counselors-in-Training,

My name is Megan Whitbeck and I am a doctoral student at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Along with Luke Vitagliano (co-investigator; doctoral student, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro), we are conducting a study on the factors that influence the crisis self-efficacy of counselors-in-training (CITs).

We are hoping that you are willing to participate in this study, which will consist of a 60-minute Zoom interview about your experiences counseling clients in acute psychological and emotional distress (i.e. crisis). You are eligible participate if you meet all of the following criteria:

  • Are a counselor-in-training who is enrolled in a CACREP-accredited Counselor Education program in the United States OR have recently graduated from a CACREP-accredited Counselor Education program in 2020-2021
  • Are at least 18 years old
  • Have counseledat least1 client in crisis, defined as acute psychological or emotional distress that is beyond one’s ability to cope

If you meet the above criteria and have a desire to participate in the research study, please complete the following Qualtrics survey:

The survey should take approximately5-10 minutesto complete. If you meet all eligibility requirements, the survey will prompt you to schedule a 60-minute Zoom interview at a time that is convenient for you.

Upon completion of the 60-minute interview, you will receive a $20 electronic gift card to Amazon via email within two weeks for your participation and engagement. If you know of anyone who may qualify for this study, please consider forwarding this message to anyone you think may be interested. 

If you begin the survey and you change your mind about participating, you can withdraw at any time during the study and your data will not be used. Your participation is completely voluntary. Choosing not to participate or withdrawing from the study will not impact your relationship with the researchers or the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
