The Relationship between Self-Appraisal, Professional Training, and Diversity Awareness among Forensic Psychology Students: A Pilot Formative Evaluation
Chandler, Donald S., Jr.; Chandler, Michele D.; Clark, Quelanda C.
Online Submission
Currently, there is a growing need for formal training in forensic psychology. This pilot study examines the relational-behavior model (RBM) as a method of intrinsic motivational instruction, perceived academic competence, and program competency among a sample of forensic psychology students. In theory, the RBM suggests that self-appraisal, professional training, and diversity awareness are essential factors in profiling an effective forensic instruction and training. Moreover, RBM divides the profile into two areas: perceived academic competency and program competency. In this study, results of both profiles suggested high levels of academic and program competency. A Spearman rho analysis further suggested that the self-appraisal, professional training, and diversity awareness were interrelated competency factors. Future studies utilizing the RBM were discussed. (Contains 2 figures.)
