Promoting Ego Development And Multicultural Competence During Internship, Edward Cannon, Dennis Frank

Edward Cannon

This research involved an exploratory intervention to determine the effectiveness of using a deliberate psychological education (DPE) approach that incorporated issues of ethics, multicultural competence, oppression and diversity. The study attempted to discern if the DPE model used could make a difference in the promotion of ego development (which subsumes moral development) and multicultural knowledge and awareness of counselor interns. The intervention group showed significant gains compared to comparison groups in ego development as measured by the Washington University Sentence Completion Test (WSCT) (Loevinger 1985) as well as significant gains on the Knowledge subscale of the Multicultural Counseling Knowledge and ...

Measuring Ethical Sensitivity To Racial And Gender Intolerance In Schools, Edward Cannon

Edward Cannon

Professional school counselors must increasingly be prepared to work in more racially and ethnically diverse school settings. At the same time, most school counselor trainees continue to be from the dominant culture, raising the likelihood of culture clashes and ethical violations. This article describes the use of a computer version of a measure of ethical sensitivity to racial and gender intolerance, the Racial Ethical Sensitivity Test-Compact Disk (REST-CD; Sirin, Brabeck, Satiani, & Rogers-Serin, 2003) with school counselor interns. A study of 54 school counselor interns showed that courses in professional ethics and multicultural issues were positively related to scores on the ...

The Death Of Peer Review?, Annie Smith, Dustin Fife Sep 2015

The Death Of Peer Review?, Annie Smith, Dustin Fife

Annie Smith

The peer-reviewed label is one of the most trusted symbols of quality in academic research. Professors and librarians often steer students towards scholarly sources. But what do we do when academic research is tainted? Scholars and researchers are regularly caught fabricating or falsifying data, plagiarizing, or resubmitting old papers to new journals. Some publications offer to publish any paper if the author is willing to pay a fee. Peer-review is becoming more and more an minimum-threshold concept, rather than a stamp of quality. This panel will discuss the ethical dilemmas of scholarly research and how to work toward information literate ...


(Re)Constructing Our Africa Experience, Eric D. Teman J.D., Ph.D., Veronica M. Richard Ph.D. May 2015

(Re)Constructing Our Africa Experience, Eric D. Teman J.D., Ph.D., Veronica M. Richard Ph.D.

Eric D Teman, J.D., Ph.D.

We recount, reconstruct, and reflect on our experiences as evaluators in a cross-cultural setting, with a principal focus on the serendipitous ethical and methodological issues that arose while in a remote South African village. As most ethical issues go, there is not always a clear solution. Therefore, the authors spend time critically considering the soundness of the decisions that were made, from the lack of diversity of the research team, to the ways we interacted with local citizens, to research design issues. We tell our story using performance narrative and autoethnographic methods.
