Doctoral Counselor Education Students' Levels of Research Self-Efficacy, Perceptions of the Research Training Environment, and Interest in Research
Lambie, Glenn W.; Vaccaro, Nicole
Counselor Education and Supervision, v50 n4 p243-258 Jun 2011
Counselor educators are called to be effective researchers; however, limited study has investigated research constructs within counselor educators-in-training. This study investigated the levels of research self-efficacy (Greeley et al., 1989), perceptions of the research training environment (Gelso, Mallinckrodt, & Judge, 1996), and interest in research (Bishop & Bieschke, 1994) within a sample of counselor education doctoral students (N = 89). Doctoral students in their 3rd year of preparation had higher research self-efficacy scores than did 1st and 2nd-year students. Additionally, higher research self-efficacy was associated with higher interest in research and scholarly publication experience. Implications for counselor education are discussed.
