Psychological Climate, Stress, and Research Integrity among Research Counselor Educators: A Preliminary Study
Wester, Kelly L.; Willse, John T.; Davis, Mark S.
Counselor Education and Supervision, v50 n1 p39-55 Sep 2010
In this quantitative study, 187 counselor educators at research institutions reported engaging in responsible conduct of research (RCR), with a few individuals reporting deviations from ethical behavior. Tenure-seeking faculty members indicated a greater likelihood of deviating from acceptable research practices than did tenured faculty members. The psychological meaningfulness of one's department and research ethics training positively related to engagement in RCR, explaining 18% of the variance. Implications for training of research ethics are discussed, along with suggestions for environmental needs within counseling departments to potentially increase psychological meaningfulness for faculty members.
