Questions related to Counseling Psychology
I am looking to do a Pearson Correlation to determine the order in which my variables should be entered into a Hierarchical Multiple Regression. Some of my variables are continuous and some are categorical. So, I am thinking to perform Pearson Correlations such as this:
- Correlation between level of study (undergraduate, postgraduate), area of study (nutrition, counselling, psychology, medicine, etc), year of study (1st, 2nd) and a test score. A separate correlation test will be performed to find out the associations between each test score (I have a number of different tests) and the independent variables.
I will then use those correlations in the Hierarchical Multiple Regression to determine which of the independent variables can predict the test scores. I will dummy-code each of the categorical variables after the Pearson Correlation but before the Hierarchical Multiple Regression.
My question is, are these steps suitable?
Why many highly successful physicists like Ludwig Boltzmann, Paul Drude, Paul Ehrenfest, Arnold Berliner, Percy Williams Bridgman, Augustus Matthiessen took their own lives at the pinnacle of their careers? Was it because they did not learn to manage stress or there is some other bit of a mystery?
Do every research need to learning to manage stress as it can have life-saving consequences?
I'm a Masters student in counselling psychology. For my research, I'm using the McGill Friendship questionnaire. But I'm unable to find the scoring and interpretation for the same. thank you in advance.
My academic research project is on family relationships with a close alcoholic family (on perception of the harmful alcohol use, grief, social support). Please complete this confidential 15-minute survey if this sounds like you. Thank you so much! https://mtsu.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bykCGwMPY5GEAvP

Greetings Ms. Lopez-Romero,
I would be happy to send you chapter of my book and references that explain how the brain responds to exposure to violent entertainment media and violent video games. The book's research concludes that it is necessary to address these influences in order to prevent violent behavior and to promote academic performance.
I will have a 2X3 (pretest-posttest-follow up X experimental-control groups) split plot experimental design study, which is an RCT trying to test the effect of a group intervention on various variables. I want to see whether potential mediator variables say, a and b have mediated the effect of the intervention on the variable c. I will measure the potential mediators with the outcome for the three assessments. Does this design make sense and what kind of statistical procedures would you recommend? Advice on any introductory document, software as well as your answers would be very much appreciated.
Edit: I have previous experience on PROCESS macro for testing mediation on cross-sectional data, and am curious whether I can use it for this kind of experimental data.
I'm attempting to write a lit-review on issues/benefits (assumptions, biases, resistance, counter transference, etc.) found specifically in a therapeutic alliance between a therapist and therapist-client. But I haven't found any literature or research regarding this question. Admittedly, this topic may be to broad to write a lit-review, thus any help would be greatly appreciated!
I am conducting qualitative research for my doctorate in counselling psychology, exploring humanitarian workers’ experiences of morally conflicting events, through the lens of Litz et al.’s (2009) model of moral injury. I’m using theoretical TA underpinned by critical realist ontology and constructivist epistemology that foregrounds researcher subjectivity in the co-creation of knowledge. I received feedback that the philosophical stance of the project does not fit comfortably with theoretical thematic analysis. I’m trying to establish whether a) it’s because my argument was weak and not presented clearly or, b) whether CR ontology, constructivist epistemology and theoretical TA are fundamentally incompatible. Any thoughts on this?
I am preparing to conduct an outcome study of Lifespan Integration Therapy with traumatized children using Elliott's HSCED. Most of the measures Elliott uses are geared towards adults. So my question is whether anyone has used HSCED with children before and if so, how they have changed the measures.
Could you please share with me the manual or the set of specific criteria/standards that are needed for a training institution to be awarded with the ACE Denmark accreditation of counseling training programs in Denmark? As I understand, the ACE Denmark provides both the institutional accreditation and the program accreditation to any higher education institutions regardless of its professional specialization. Because of that, are there any specific requirements/criteria for counseling/psychology education programs to earn this accreditation? Were those criteria developed based on the Danish Psychological Association standards, based on the Danish Supervisory Board of Psychological Practice regulations, or based on the ACE Denmark requirements?
The English language literature is very limited on this subject.
Thank you very much for your help! I would appreciate any information or references.
I am seeking advice and resources that can help me educate business professionals in learning how to think using a theoretical lens.
For the summer, I am a extern at a corporation. In our meetings, people make contradicting suggestions and recommendations, but are somehow both accepted. My grad school training in counseling psychology, which is heavy on theory and philosophy, had me scratching my head and wonder why conflicting ideas were both accepted.
I briefly spoke with my supervisor about my observation. I walked her through my thinking and we 'walked out' the two ideas where she clearly saw the disconnect. She passed the results of our discussion along and now I have been asked to give a presentation on this process -- thinking in theoretical terms, understanding one's theoretical lens, and so forth.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
My Masters programme in Counselling Psychology advents next week, and I am looking to explore the potential of gamification of counselling through critical evaluation of existing models and assumptions with regard to the same. Lacking access to subjects or possible experimental and empirical data, I wish to keep the paper largely essay-oriented.
Is this feasible/a professionally sound idea?
Any help will be appreciated! Thank you.

What should musicians’ health education sound like? The floor is yours!
Workshops funded by Realab and the IMR
Wednesday, 19 September OR Monday, 24 September 2018 | 11.30 AM, Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM), Manchester, UK
Tuesday, 25 September OR Saturday, 29 September 2018 | 11.30 AM
Institute of Musical Research, Senate House, London, UK
The physical and psychological demands of the training and practice that musicians must achieve to perform to a high standard can produce deleterious effects on their health and wellbeing. However, music conservatoires still endorse practices that are informed by tradition more than evidence, while health literacy and critical thinking are still not embedded in music students’ core training. Finally, there are no guidelines or regulations regarding what conservatoires should provide in terms of health education.
We want to address that AND we need your help!
We invite psychologists (both researchers and practitioners, from any specialism and not restricted to those who work with musicians) to join us in this discussion! We have prepared comprehensive lists of topics and we shall discuss their relevance and priority in small groups. Additionally, we will brainstorm ideas about what other topics might be needed as part of the conservatoires’ curricula.
Places are free, but limited. While we prioritise psychologists (due to the nature of our task and topic focus), we also welcome:
- Health professionals working with musicians
- Philosophers (yes, yes! We’d also like to discuss cognitive biases and logical fallacies!)
- Cognitive scientists
- Specialists in music education
- PhD students in any of the topics above
Please note the same workshop will be held four times. Please choose only one and register your interest here: https://mmu.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/musicians-health-education-workshop-sept-2018
For any queries, please contact the organisers: Raluca Matei, AHRC-funded PhD student in music psychology: firstname.lastname@example.org | +44 757 061 2760 OR
Keith Phillips, PhD student in music psychology: email@example.com
I am interested in measuring how well group psychotherapy clients rate their ability to listen and be present for other group members. Is anyone aware of a measure that helps capture this? I would like it to be able to capture perceptions of a session (e.g., "In last session, I was able to..."). Thanks!
What kind of questions do you think "must be" included in an interview guide aimed at"evaluating/describing dynamics" a group counseling with a qualitative approach? I have my set of questions regarding trust on leader, perceived leader effectiveness, trust on group, perceived progress towards personal goals, questions aimed at assessing the impact of specific aspects with respect to the techniques and variables involved, yet I would like to hear from dear fellow researchers on good examples or personal experiences. Advice on wording of specific questions and references to literature would be appreciated. I will employ qualitative phase in parallel to a quantitative 2X3 RCT experimental study, within the framework of an explanatory sequential mixed design.
While searching for courses on Clinical psychology and Counseling Psychology separately, I found some of the leading Universities also offer courses named 'Counseling and Clinical Psychology', these are the combined courses. What may be the pros and cons of such combined courses ?
I'm investigating extremely delayed retirement among old entrepreneurs, from both organizational and psychological point of view. Could anyone suggest me specific literature?
What are the characteristics of a representative man?

Hard to reach, Worth it to try getting closer!!
What is the better strategy?
to have "wet" lifeguards - physically fit lifeguards who are able to rescue (a reactive activity)?
to have "dry" lifeguards - excellent vigilant lifeguards who are trained and experienced in preventing bathers from entering risky situations and scenarios (a proactive activity)?
I'm looking for a scale to measure the feeling of threat or identity threat as a result of a behaviour change programme that was implemented in a workplace.
For one week we took away most of the meat choices in a canteen and launched a campaign with information about the environmental impact of meat. Some employees reacted with denial and reactant, so I'm now interested in measuring feeling of threat with a focus on threat to one's identity. If you have come across anything I'd really appreciate your suggestions! You can also email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Wondering if in other religions , are there any particular teachings / quotes similar to "do not be anxious" - as those found in the Bible ?

Thanks in advance
I am currently working on the second ellipses article the third in the supervision relationship.
I would welcome your thoughts, suggestions, practice related examples and references to key theoretical text....
Hi I am wondering what interventions you are looking at in this study?

I am looking for expertise (personal help, research articles, websites etc.) on working with manatory/unvolentairy clients (prison, probation, illegal immigrants, social work, reintegration etc.). Thanks in advance for helping me out!
My graduate-level child therapies class has used Kronenberger & Meyer's (2001) book, The Child Clinician's Handbook. Unfortunately, it has not been updated for DSM-5 or to incorporate updated evidence-based research.
Does anyone have suggestions for an up-to-date, graduate-level textbook for child and adolescent therapy?
I am looking for someone able to build these profiles thanks to the use of questionnaires, or tests, or whatever.
My thesis involves looking at grief responses based on the shared relationship the bereaved had with the deceased. one of my questions deal with coping strategies but it seems the models do not distinguish between the responses and the strategies for coping.
Many bisexual people don't include themselves online in LGBTQ online groups because of the stigma they face and avoid visibility elsewhere (e.g. women's groups) because of fear of biphobia. What techniques do you employ to research this hidden population?
I am analyzing responses to surveys where people have written very different text responses to the "please explain" text fields from their Likert scale x-choice in the same question? For example:
Q: How would you rate the responsiveness of home office to field office needs?
X choices=Excellent, fair, neutral, poor, terrible (respondent selected "fair")
*Same* respondent's text response in comment field = "Home office has almost never responded to any of my requests as field office director. My understanding from other ODs [office directors] is that they have an equally hard time getting home office to reply to requests, let alone get the request filled."
This is a strong and broad pattern across many questions and many respondents. I'm beginning to think I did something wrong to break the platform (SurveyMonkey) or just did a really poor job of constructing questions...if it is not me, what causes people to answer this way? Is this a real survey-based research thing or is it just me?
Vitali, I will try to post one of my papers from Guadalajara. It examines how to host and distribute orbit data, a "data commons" according to Ostrom. Also a former student of John Jenkins and I have a paper on best practices for disadvantaged operators to use available data, such as deficient TLE's.
I'm wondering if there are any articles or literature out there that state that counseling psychologists and guidance counselors are similar? Or that they go through similar tasks?
Particularly with regard to the types of clients they handle, or their approach, or their tasks within the workplace (eg. do counselors do more paperwork?).
Anything like that.

Kindly advice and suggest new project topics that I could work upon in the area of Counselling Psychology as partial fulfilment of my Degree of Masters in Psychology (specialisation Counselling Psychology).
It needs to be a research(study/quantitative) project mostly comparative and empirical data collection on some relevant untouched topic.
There are two variables x= teaching skills and y= conflicts in student groups. I have a data set where teacher messages are tagged with different teaching skills and group messages are tagged with different group problems. My hiphotesis is that the lack of teaching skills is related with the presence of group conflicts. How could I know is there is relationship between teaaching skills and group conflicts? Is there a data mining technique to find a kind of association between both variables?

It's just that the immune system is incredibly complicated, and it's very difficult to focus. I'd like to hear about how you all do this. O,' the other thing is that I also focus on what cancer patients and their families are going through -a little side effect of 30+ years of cancer research. It's a psychology aspect of cancer most people don't think about, but in reality affects us all.
I am aware that there are normed tests such as the MMPI-2 for pre-hire examinations in police officers. However, I am unable to identify any testing measures which can be utilized to determining psychological trauma in police officers who have been exposed to traumatic experiences? For example the MMPI-2 has never been "normed" on on-duty police officers, therefore it is not a valid psychometric measure.
I heard a presentation on the Kailo Study conducted in a hospital setting which measured the level of the entire workforce in terms of Depression... and then set up a Fitness Center and staffed it with an EAP Professional... they were able to bring down the overall level of Depression in their Workforce... but this is a dated study - am looking for any more current examples of studies that have attempted to address Depression in the entire Workforce and were able to effect the entire culture enough to lower the over-all rate of Depression.... Thanks!
I am a Honours student, applying for the masters programme in counselling psychology. I am expected to produce a research proposal for my possible master's thesis.

Teenagers and youths seem to spend more and more time on internet and on social network applications. It may be a way (I am not sure effective or not) to reach them. Many spend more time on the computer than with family members. Some research suggested youths are searching the internets for methods of suicide.

In other words, not perceptions of current competence, but rather belief in one's capacity to develop greater competence in the future?
The field of counseling differentiates itself by focusing on a client's strengths and overall wellness. We believe that clients can come in for help with major mental illness or to simply improve or maintain their quality of life. But do we do a thorough job of teaching that in our programs? When our students go into the field, do they carry that wellness orientation with them?
There has been a huge debate in this field about the best Model of Response to use - but less literature on evidence based research in terms of which response is proven the most effective in general or even with specific populations or different cultural areas. Has anyone found or heard of a solid measurement tool to measure the effectiveness of a Critical Incident Response of any type?
I want to investigate what changes the psychotherapy provide for my clients and if the treatment was or not efficient.
