Hello, my name Heather Mayton, I am a doctoral student at UNCG in the Counseling and Educational Development department. I am conducting research onauthenticity and self-efficacy in counselor trainees. I hope to understand more what the relationship looks like between authenticity and self-efficacy and determine what factors are influencing these variables throughout a counselor trainee’s development.
If you are currently in a CACREP master’s counseling program and enrolled in or have completed a clinical experience such as practicum or internship, I would love for you to consider taking part in this research study that asks about your authenticity and self-efficacy.
Taking part would mean answering some questions on an online survey, which may take a maximum 25 minutes. The first twenty participants to complete the survey will receive a guaranteed $5 gift card to Amazon. Anyone who completes the survey after the first 20 participants, will be entered into a raffle to win one of thirty $5 gift cards to Amazon. In order to determine who receives the incentive, there will be a separate link to provide your email at the end of the study that is not connected to your recorded responses.
