Hello graduate students!

You are requested to kindly spare some valuable time and participate in the following study. The study is being conducted by Nataasha Khattar, M.A. Clinical Psychology Student at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan. She is being supervised by Dr. Brian O’Connor for her thesis project. 

Who Can Participate In This Study?

To participate in this study, you must:

  • Be a graduate student 
  • Be in clinical, counselling or social work programs
  • Be able to read and understand fluent English

Purpose of this study?

We are reaching out to graduate students like you to participate so we can understand the dimensionality of the multicultural self-efficacy and to develop a precise scale.


If you choose to participate in this study, you will be asked to complete a survey on UBC-hosted Qualtrics. It will take approximately 40-45 min to complete the survey form. If you have any questions before beginning this survey, you can reach out to the researcher at – nataasha.khattar@ubc.ca


You will not be paid directly to participate in the study. However, you may choose to enter a draw for one of twenty $20 amazon gift cards (or receive an e-transfer for the same amount). Winners will be required to answer a skill-testing question. 

Your answers will help lay the groundwork for future multiculturally competent training for graduate students.
