COUNSELOR EDUCATION PROGRAM -- North Carolina Central University

My name is Tamika Jackson, and I am a Doctoral Candidate in the Counselor Education and Supervision program at William and Mary. I am working on my dissertation and conducting a study on the experiences of counseling graduate students with conservative Christian values in secular CACREP-accredited programs, under the guidance of my dissertation chair, Dr. Craig Cashwell.  
This study will explore how counseling graduate students who have conservative Christian values experience secular counselor training programs. This research will help counselor educators better understand these experiences and promote conversation around support and safety for students with conservative religious views. 
You are eligible to participate if you:  
  1. Are a masters-level counseling student currently enrolled or recently graduated (2023 or 2024 graduates) from a secular counseling training program accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). 
  2. Identify as having conservative Christian values (values that align with orthodox, traditional, or conventional Christian beliefs and principles as it relates to biblical authority, moral responsibility, and Christian conduct). 
  3. Have completed coursework in multicultural counseling or are currently enrolled in a multicultural course. 
  4. Agree to participate in a 60–90-minute Zoom interview. 
Individuals who participate in this study will be asked to complete a demographic questionnaire through Qualtrics before the interview. Interviews will be recorded. After successful completion of the interview, participants will receive a $25 Amazon gift card sent directly to their provided email address as a token of appreciation for their participation.
