You are invited to participate in a dissertation research study titled A Multi-Dimensional Construct of Acculturation, Acculturative Stress, and Counselor Self-Efficacy.The overall objective of this research study is to explore the relationship between three different acculturation domains (i.e., cultural practices, values, identifications) and acculturative stress with counselor self-efficacy among international counseling students (ICSs) and racial/ethnic minority counseling students.
Findings from this study will add to the acculturation literature and provide insight to further research on the supervision and training of international and racial/ethnic minority counseling students. Your participation in this study is entirely voluntary and you may withdraw your consent and terminate participation without consequence at any time.
As a ‘thank you’ for your participation, you are eligible to enter a random drawing for one of four $50 Amazon gift cards. After completing the survey, you will be directed to a separate page to provide your email for the drawing.
You are eligible to participate in this study if you meet the following criteria:
1. You are an international or racial/ethnic minority counseling student enrolled in a counseling master’s level programs such as mental health counseling, school counseling, rehabilitation counseling, career counseling, marriage and family counseling, and substance abuse counseling
2. You are an international or racial/ethnic minority counseling student enrolled in a counseling doctoral level programs, such as counselor education and family therapy.
The online survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete and special measures will be taken to protect your confidentiality to the extent possible.
