This study is being done by Micah A. Frett who is a student in the College of Counseling, Psychology & Social Sciences at Argosy University-Sarasota working on a dissertation for the Counselor Education and Supervision doctoral degree. This study is a
requirement to fulfill the researcher’s degree and will not be used for decision-making by any organization.
The title of this study is CACREP Counselors’ In-Training Self-Efficacy Concerning Helping Older Adults. The purpose of this study is to assess self-efficacy in counselors-in-training concerning counseling older adults.
I was asked to be in this study because I may match this study’s target population of counselors-in-training who are members of a listserve that focuses on counselors. If I agree to be in this study, I will be asked to complete a four question
demographic section to assess if I meet the study qualifications. (If I don’t meet the study qualification I will not have to complete the rest of the survey). If I meet the research’s qualifications I will also be asked to complete a 37-item
questionnaire adapted from the Counseling Self-Estimate Inventory (COSE)( Larsen, 1990; Larsen et, al 1992) . This instrument will measure my self-efficacy concerning counseling older adult clients. To complete both questionnaires will take less than
twenty minutes to complete.
The risks associated with this study are minimal. Emmanuel, Abdoler &Stunker (n.d), report that “research about surveys themselves has shown that surveys cause little stress” (p.8).The benefits of participation are to the counselor education
profession as the information I share may assist counselor preparation programs to assess training and education related to counseling older adults.
I will receive nothing for participating in this study.
The information I provide will be treated confidentially, which means that nobody even the primary researcher or her dissertation committee will be able to tell who I am.
The records of this study will be kept private. No words linking me to the study will be included in any sort of report that might be published.
The records of this study will be stored securely and only the primary researcher Micah A. Frett, the dissertation committee Dr. B. Mustaine (chair) and Dr. S. Harney (member) will have access to the records.
I have the right to get a summary of the results of this study if I would like to have them. I can get the summary by contacting the primary researcher Micah A. Frett by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
