Calling All School Counselors (K-12):
Greetings, my name is Nicole Randick and I am a doctoral candidate at Governors State University in the Counselor Education and Supervision program. I’m researching the relationship between job duties (as defined by the ASCA National Model) and school counselor wellness. The title of my study is The Relationship Between Actual Job Duties and Wellness of School Counselors.
The purpose of this study is to achieve a greater understanding of what factors contribute to the wellness of school counselors, specifically when it comes to school counselors’ roles and functions within the school setting. This study has been approved by the Governor State University IRB #13-12-09.
I am requesting participation from all school counselors working within the K-12 setting.
There are several potential benefits to participation:
• You help contribute to the understanding of what factors contribute to the overall wellness of school counselors.
• You have the opportunity to be self-reflective about what job duties, as defined by the ASCA National Model, may influence one’s overall wellness.
• You may gain knowledge of different areas of wellness in one’s life.
The survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. All information is collected anonymously. The survey includes a demographic questionnaire, the School Counselor Activity Rating Scale (SCARS) by Janna Scarborough, and the Five Factor Wellness Inventory (5F-Wel) by Myers & Sweeney.
If you would like to participate in this study, it can be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.
Questions regarding the study can be directed to this researcher at firstname.lastname@example.org or my
chair, Dr. Shannon Dermer at sdermer@ govst.edu.
Thank you in advance for your participation,
