2084 Haley Center
Auburn, AL 36849
(334) 844-5160

You are invited to participate in a research study that aims to explore the relationship of affective training climate of doctoral counseling and clinical psychology programs to student psychotherapists’ overall levels of affect and professional development. Through this research, I hope to enhance understanding of the ways in which doctoral counseling and clinical psychology training programs might be better able to enhance the affective and professional development experiences of their students through an evaluation of their own affective climates. This study is being conducted by Kacey Wilson, B.S. under the supervision of Randolph Pipes, Ph.D.

You were selected as a possible participant because you are a member of an APA-accredited counseling or clinical psychology doctoral program. To be eligible to participate in this study, you must: (1) meet the age requirement to consent to research participation in your state; (2) have completed at least one academic year of doctoral training within your program; (3) and have completed at least one semester of conducting therapy with clients as a part of your program requirements (i.e., beginning practicum, advanced practicum, or predoctoral internship).

If you decide to participate, you will click on the link at the bottom of this page to enter the survey. Here, you will be asked to complete the instruments and the demographics sheet. This process should take approximately 10-15 minutes of your time. This is a one-time commitment and you will not be asked for any further information once you have submitted your responses.

Any information obtained in connection with this study will remain anonymous. The survey website does not collect the URL or the email address of participants. You may stop taking the survey at any time, however, once you submit your anonymous information you cannot withdraw your data later since there will be no way to identify individual information.

The anonymous information collected through your participation in this study will be used to complete this dissertation, may be published in a professional journal, and may be presented at professional meetings.

I do not believe that there will be any significant risks or benefits for participating in this study. It is possible that participants may experience slight anxiety as a result of being asked to reflect upon their graduate experiences. If you should experience any adverse effects in completing the following instruments, please contact your local mental health care provider.

Your decision whether or not to participate will not jeopardize your future relations with Auburn University.

If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer them now or later. I can be reached at the following: Kacey Wilson, Department of Counselor Education, Counseling Psychology, and School Psychology, 2084 Haley Center, Auburn University, Auburn, AL 36849, (334) 844-5160, wilsok1@auburn.edu.

Subject: Survey on Ethical Climate in Psychology Graduate Programs

Hi,
My name is Kim Kempner and I am a doctoral candidate in the Counseling Psychology program at Texas A&M University. I am conducting a dissertation study using a web-based survey on doctoral students' perceptions regarding ethical climates and various facets of the graduate school experience. I became interested in this area when I attempted to gather information about how students tend to handle ethical dilemmas within their programs. I was very disheartened by the fact that little research existed in this area. It is my hope that this project will help to increase recognition of the importance of the ethical environment in which graduate students function.

Hi, everyone,

As part of a research study on the teaching method used in CSPP's
Pre-Practicum course, I am looking for volunteers to be interviewed
about their experience in the course. The interview will take less than
an hour and will be conducted over the phone during the months of June
or July.

Interview questions will be sent out prior to the interview for
contemplation. Please let me know if you are interested in being
interviewed about your experience so we can schedule a time to talk.

Below is a formal letter requesting your participation and providing
some more details about the study.

Thanks!

Karen Kersting


Dear Pre-Practicum Students,

Greetings! We hope you are doing well.

We are hoping to conduct a study regarding your experiences in the
pre-practicum class. If you choose to participate, we will ask to
interview you for about an hour. Pre-Practicum students will be
interviewed by Karen Kersting.

Risks: While risks to this study are minimal, you may experience some
mild discomfort in the interview process when sharing personal
information and experiences with the interviewer.

Benefits: There are no direct benefits to you for participating. It is
our hope, however, that basic counseling skills instruction will be
better informed through your participation.

Participation in this study is voluntary. If you choose to participate,
no identifying information will be attached to transcripts of the
interviews.

If you would like to participate, please reply to this email in order
to schedule an interview. Consent will be explained at the beginning of
the interview.

Research Participation

Dear Colleagues,

I am a counseling psychology doctoral student at the University of Utah. For my master’s thesis, I am conducting an online study on attitudes of counselors-in-training towards victims of sexual violence. Studies have shown that there is a prevalence of clients with a history of sexual victimization in clinical populations (Dye & Roth, 1990). The purpose of this survey is to assess possible patterns of attitudes towards victims of sexual violence in order to start a conversation within the area of counselor education as to what areas need to be addressed in training.

If you are a master's or doctoral-level student enrolled in a psychology, counseling, or social work program, please participate in my study by sharing your perspectives. Participation in this study should only take 15-25 minutes of your time. You will be asked to rate your agreement with a series of statements and provide some basic demographic information. The risks of this study, if any, are minimal. It is possible that you may feel upset when thinking about issues related to the topic of the research. These risks are similar to those you experience when discussing this topic with others. There are no foreseeable benefits to an individual participating in this study.

Your participation in this study is voluntary. As such, you are free to refuse or stop at any time without penalty. All information you provide is strictly confidential. Since this study is being conducted via the internet, confidentiality will be ensured through data encryption and number coding. Only the researcher and those supervising the research will have access to the data. Any demographic information you provide will be used solely for statistical concerns.

Dear fellow Counseling Psychology student,

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Counseling Psychology at Fordham University under the direction of Dr. Eric C. Chen, and am conducting my dissertation research investigating variables that affect the supervisory relationship as seen through the eyes of the supervisee.

If you already completed the study, I thank you very much. If you have not had a chance to do so, I kindly ask you to consider it. You will be asked to answer questions about your current or most recent supervisory experience as a trainee with one particular supervisor, as well as answer a few questions about your experience in romantic relationships. You can access the informed consent form, demographic questionnaire and survey by clicking on the following link (or by copying and pasting the link into your browser): http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=47771826264
THE GREAT NEWS IS THAT it takes on average only 15 minutes to complete the 4 surveys and demographic questionnaire, much less than I initially estimated!

As I promised, for each participant who completes the study, I will donate $2 (up to a maximum of $200) to the American Breast Cancer Society.

And one last thing, in case you are still reading: if you started the survey but did not complete it, you can go to the link from the computer at which you started filling it out, and it will take you to the page where you left off.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration. I would be more than glad to share the results of the study with you, so please feel free to contact me at kowalewska@fordham.edu

(334) 844-5160

You are invited to participate in a research study that aims to explore the relationship of affective training climate of doctoral counseling and clinical psychology programs to student psychotherapists’ overall levels of affect and professional development. Through this research, I hope to enhance understanding of the ways in which doctoral counseling and clinical psychology training programs might be better able to enhance the affective and professional development experiences of their students through an evaluation of their own affective climates. This study is being conducted by Kacey Wilson, B.S. under the supervision of Randolph Pipes, Ph.D.

You were selected as a possible participant because you are a member of an APA-accredited counseling or clinical psychology doctoral program. To be eligible to participate in this study, you must: (1) meet the age requirement to consent to research participation in your state; (2) have completed at least one academic year of doctoral training within your program; (3) and have completed at least one semester of conducting therapy with clients as a part of your program requirements (i.e., beginning practicum, advanced practicum, or predoctoral internship).

If you decide to participate, you will click on the link at the bottom of this page to enter the survey. Here, you will be asked to complete the instruments and the demographics sheet. This process should take approximately 10-15 minutes of your time. This is a one-time commitment and you will not be asked for any further information once you have submitted your responses.

Any information obtained in connection with this study will remain anonymous. The survey website does not collect the URL or the email address of participants. You may stop taking the survey at any time, however, once you submit your anonymous information you cannot withdraw your data later since there will be no way to identify individual information.

The anonymous information collected through your participation in this study will be used to complete this dissertation, may be published in a professional journal, and may be presented at professional meetings.

I do not believe that there will be any significant risks or benefits for participating in this study. It is possible that participants may experience slight anxiety as a result of being asked to reflect upon their graduate experiences. If you should experience any adverse effects in completing the following instruments, please contact your local mental health care provider.

Your decision whether or not to participate will not jeopardize your future relations with Auburn University.

If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer them now or later. I can be reached at the following: Kacey Wilson, Department of Counselor Education, Counseling Psychology, and School Psychology, 2084 Haley Center, Auburn University, Auburn, AL 36849, (334) 844-5160, wilsok1@auburn.edu.

Subject: Survey on Ethical Climate in Psychology Graduate Programs

Hi,
My name is Kim Kempner and I am a doctoral candidate in the Counseling Psychology program at Texas A&M University. I am conducting a dissertation study using a web-based survey on doctoral students' perceptions regarding ethical climates and various facets of the graduate school experience. I became interested in this area when I attempted to gather information about how students tend to handle ethical dilemmas within their programs. I was very disheartened by the fact that little research existed in this area. It is my hope that this project will help to increase recognition of the importance of the ethical environment in which graduate students function.
With these goals in mind, I am writing to ask you to participate in this project by completing an anonymous online survey. The survey is relatively simple and should take approximately 35 - 40 minutes to complete. The Institutional Review Board at Texas A&M University has determined that this research meets the criteria for human subjects according to Federal Guidelines (IRB # 2005-0266).
If you are a full-time graduate student who has been enrolled in an APA-approved counseling or clinical psychology program for at least two semesters, please take a few minutes to complete this survey. You can complete the survey by clicking on (or cutting and pasting into you browser’s address bar) the following link: http://www.coe.tamu.edu/~tadiguzel/kim_survey/. The password to enter this site is “xxxx? (all lowercase).
In return for your participation, you will be given the opportunity to enter a drawing for one of two $50 gift certificates at Amazon.com. The drawing will take place at the conclusion of the study.
I also would greatly appreciate it if you would forward this link to other graduate students enrolled in APA-approved clinical or counseling programs.
Thank you for your time and help.

Dear Training Directors,

I would like to solicit your assistance one final time in collecting data for my dissertation on religion and spirituality in counselor training.

I am a doctoral candidate in the Counseling and Educational Psychology department at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. My dissertation advisor is Dr. LaVerne Berkel. This study is examining counseling psychology doctoral students' interest in and perceived importance of training focused on religion and spirituality. The study entails filling out a brief demographic questionnaire and an online survey. Administration time takes approximately 30 minutes and I am offering participants a chance to win one of five $20 cash prizes once data collection is complete. The study has also been reviewed and approved by the University of Missouri-Kansas City IRB.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could forward this email to your listserv one final time as a reminder for those students who may have not already completed the survey. Students may go to the following website to learn about my study, and hopefully participate if they have not done so already. I am very grateful for your time, consideration, and assistance.

Research Participation

Hi, everyone,

As part of a research study on the teaching method used in CSPP's
Pre-Practicum course, I am looking for volunteers to be interviewed
about their experience in the course. The interview will take less than
an hour and will be conducted over the phone during the months of June
or July.

Interview questions will be sent out prior to the interview for
contemplation. Please let me know if you are interested in being
interviewed about your experience so we can schedule a time to talk.

Below is a formal letter requesting your participation and providing
some more details about the study.

Thanks!

Karen Kersting


Dear Pre-Practicum Students,

Greetings! We hope you are doing well.

We are hoping to conduct a study regarding your experiences in the
pre-practicum class. If you choose to participate, we will ask to
interview you for about an hour. Pre-Practicum students will be
interviewed by Karen Kersting.

Risks: While risks to this study are minimal, you may experience some
mild discomfort in the interview process when sharing personal
information and experiences with the interviewer.

Benefits: There are no direct benefits to you for participating. It is
our hope, however, that basic counseling skills instruction will be
better informed through your participation.

Participation in this study is voluntary. If you choose to participate,
no identifying information will be attached to transcripts of the
interviews.

If you would like to participate, please reply to this email in order
to schedule an interview. Consent will be explained at the beginning of
the interview.


Thank you!

Research Participation

Dear Colleagues,

I am a counseling psychology doctoral student at the University of Utah. For my master’s thesis, I am conducting an online study on attitudes of counselors-in-training towards victims of sexual violence. Studies have shown that there is a prevalence of clients with a history of sexual victimization in clinical populations (Dye & Roth, 1990). The purpose of this survey is to assess possible patterns of attitudes towards victims of sexual violence in order to start a conversation within the area of counselor education as to what areas need to be addressed in training.

If you are a master's or doctoral-level student enrolled in a psychology, counseling, or social work program, please participate in my study by sharing your perspectives. Participation in this study should only take 15-25 minutes of your time. You will be asked to rate your agreement with a series of statements and provide some basic demographic information. The risks of this study, if any, are minimal. It is possible that you may feel upset when thinking about issues related to the topic of the research. These risks are similar to those you experience when discussing this topic with others. There are no foreseeable benefits to an individual participating in this study.

Your participation in this study is voluntary. As such, you are free to refuse or stop at any time without penalty. All information you provide is strictly confidential. Since this study is being conducted via the internet, confidentiality will be ensured through data encryption and number coding. Only the researcher and those supervising the research will have access to the data. Any demographic information you provide will be used solely for statistical concerns.

Please click this link to take you to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=487651679144

Dear fellow Counseling Psychology student,

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Counseling Psychology at Fordham University under the direction of Dr. Eric C. Chen, and am conducting my dissertation research investigating variables that affect the supervisory relationship as seen through the eyes of the supervisee.

If you already completed the study, I thank you very much. If you have not had a chance to do so, I kindly ask you to consider it. You will be asked to answer questions about your current or most recent supervisory experience as a trainee with one particular supervisor, as well as answer a few questions about your experience in romantic relationships. You can access the informed consent form, demographic questionnaire and survey by clicking on the following link (or by copying and pasting the link into your browser): http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=47771826264
THE GREAT NEWS IS THAT it takes on average only 15 minutes to complete the 4 surveys and demographic questionnaire, much less than I initially estimated!

As I promised, for each participant who completes the study, I will donate $2 (up to a maximum of $200) to the American Breast Cancer Society.

And one last thing, in case you are still reading: if you started the survey but did not complete it, you can go to the link from the computer at which you started filling it out, and it will take you to the page where you left off.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration. I would be more than glad to share the results of the study with you, so please feel free to contact me at kowalewska@fordham.edu

The aim of my investigation is to ascertain the state of training in our field regarding the frequency in which spiritual issues are being addressed during individual supervision of graduate students.

I have created a Web-based survey to assess these areas, which should only take about 15 to 20 minutes of your time. I simply request that you click on the following link to access and complete the survey. If at any time you have questions, concerns, or feel any distress while completing the survey, please contact either myself or my dissertation chair, Dr. Steven Brown. It may entice you to learn that I am offering two $40 gift certificates to Amazon.com to randomly selected participants once the data collection process is finished (if you choose to enter).
