The purpose of the qualitative component of the study is to better understand the experiences of counselling trainees during the COVID19 pandemic. We will investigate the types of stressors counselor trainees are experiencing as a result of COVID-19. We will investigate changes in their educational experiences including their practicums and classroom-based learning. We are focusing on resource availability such as supervisors and program supports as well as counselors’ self-efficacy and the strategies counselor trainees are employing in order to manage Covid19 related stress.
The interview will be via Zoom (or another video-conferencing software if you don’t use zoom) and I’d like to record the interview (audio only if you prefer). It will take approximately one hour. Following the interview, you will receive a $25.00 gift card as recognition of your time.
