Strong, Laura A.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Wayne State University
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationships, if any, among school counselors' multicultural competence, demographic data and ethical decision-making ability. The participants (N=160) for this study were members of the American Counseling Association (ACA) who designated their area of practice as school counseling. Participant's multicultural competence level was measured by the use of the MCCTS-R[C] (Revised by Holcomb-McCoy, 2004). Participant's ethical decision-making ability was measured through the use of the EDMS-R[C] (Revised by Paritzky and Dufrene, 2000; Adapted from James Rest's Defining Issues Test[C], 1979, All Rights Reserved). The participants' demographic data was collected through the use of a demographic survey. All data was collected electronically through the use of an online survey tool,[C]. The responses were evaluated through a multiple regression analysis utilizing SPSS 18.0[C]. While the multiple regression analysis produced no statistically significant results, noteworthy anecdotal observations were made regarding the results. The results from this study support the need for continued education and research regarding multicultural competence, demographic data and ethical decision-making in school counselors.
