Counseling Curiosity Survey

*Please note, the opportunity below is in no way affiliated with or endorsed by USD’s Counseling & MFT Department.


I am emailing to invite you to participate in an IRB-approved research study that will help deepen the understanding of the relationship between curiosity, cultural humility, and multicultural competence in master’s level counseling students enrolled in CACREP-accredited programs.

Participation in this study is completely voluntary and in no way affects your grade or standing in your class or at your university. In order to participate in this study, you must be (a) at least 18 years of age and (b) enrolled in a CACREP-accredited program at the practicum or internship level. There are minimal to no risks associated with participation in this study. This study will benefit the counseling field by increasing understanding about how the aforementioned variables under investigation may relate to counselors’ ability to serve diverse clientele, and has the potential to impact training, learning and therapeutic outcomes.

If you agree to be part of this study, you will be asked to complete a short demographic questionnaire and brief survey items to capture your experience providing therapeutic services to clients. The expected duration of your participation is approximately 15-20 minutes to complete the online survey. To protect your privacy, all participants’ IP addresses will be masked by Qualtrics and will be unavailable to, and unidentifiable by, the researchers or others.

If you are interested in participating in this investigation, please read the explanation of research and complete the survey items. Please let me know if you have any questions that I may address. As the principal investigator of this approved study, I may be contacted by email at If necessary, Dr. Ann Shillingford-Butler, Faculty Advisor, College of Community Innovation and Education at the University of Central Florida may also be contacted by phone at (407) 823-4753 or by email at
