Research Participation Request

Good Day,
My name is Karen Decker, and I am a doctoral student in the Counselor Education and Supervision Program at Capella University. I am currently working on my dissertation under the advisement of my Dissertation Mentor, Dr. Amie Manis.  My research study is intended to examine if relationships exist between social justice advocacy training, counselor competence in social justice advocacy and likelihood to advocate of counselor educators and counselor trainees who are in the Practicum and Internship phase of their training in CACREP accredited Master’s level counselor education programs. I am recruiting individuals to participate in a survey that will take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete.

Your participation in this study is completely voluntary. In order to participate, you must either be a counselor educator in a CACREP accredited counseling program or a counselor trainee in the Practicum and Internship phase of your training in a CACREP accredited counseling program. Participants will remain confidential.  No identifying information about the participant, the program or the school will be collected. Researchers will be blind to this information as will program directors.

Although participants will be able to remain anonymous, those who choose to can enter their information into a drawing to win an Amazon gift card. A $100 Amazon gift card will be awarded through a random drawing of participants who choose to participate in the drawing. Drawing entry data will not be tied to survey responses to ensure anonymity of responses.

This study has been approved by the IRB at Capella University (IRB # 403586-1).
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at or my mentor at If you would like to participate in this research study, please click on the link below or copy and paste it into your browser.
