Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this dissertation was to demonstrate research scholarship using the American Psychological Association (APA) manuscript-style dissertation format, in accordance with Oregon State University Graduate School and Counseling Academic Unit guidelines. Chapter 1 explains how chapters 2 and 3 are thematically linked manuscripts intended to extend professional literature in Counseling. Chapter 2 reviews related literature titled: Counseling Individuals with Serious Mental Illness: A Review of the Literature. From the foundation established in Chapter 2, Chapter 3 specifies a cross- sectional survey predictive design titled: The Relationship between Involvement with Serious Mental Illness and Self-Efficacy among Novice Counselors. The purpose of this study was to examine if involvement with SMI predicts self-efficacy above and beyond experience in beginner and novice counselors. Counselor self-efficacy of a sample of beginner and novice counselors (N=79) was measured using a short form of the counselor self-estimate inventory (COSE). Involvement with serious mental illness was measured by a pilot measure developed within this study. The 8-item, 5-point likert scale required participants to rate their current caseloads based on the frequency they experience symptoms specific to an empirical definition of serious mental illness. Results indicate no significant predictive relationship between involvement with SMI and counselor self-efficacy [F (2,72) = 1.09, p = .342]. Inflated counselor self-efficacy scores indicate a potential error in measurement and need for closer examination in future research. Results from this study, combined with previous empirical findings, inform future research related to training and supervision to better prepare counselors for a diverse clinical population.
