Dear Graduate Students,
I hope this message finds you doing well. As a third-year doctoral student, I am dedicated to enhancing the graduate student experience. I want to ask for your valuable feedback to achieve my goal. You are invited to participate in my study, The Lived Experience of Novice Counselor Practitioners’ Perceptions of Their Philosophical Alignment in Theory and Practice: A Pilot Study, and share insights on aligning theory with practice in the classroom and your professional counseling experience. Your participation will help me identify areas that need improvement and contribute to creating a more supportive and fulfilling pedagogy that bridges the gap between classroom educator and clinician practice.
You will be asked to complete a brief survey and participate in a semi-structured interview. Please be assured that your responses will be kept confidential. I kindly request your honesty and candid feedback to help me better understand your perceptions.
The study will remain open until I reach the desired number of participants, so I encourage you to complete it as soon as possible. The first 10 participants who complete the process will receive a $25 gift card as a token of appreciation for their time.
Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to your valuable contributions.
