Dear University,

 I am a doctoral student at Argosy University working on my dissertation. My dissertation title is the Impact of the Supervisor's Education and License on the Professional Identity and Self-Efficacy of the Post-Graduate, Pre-Licensure Counselor in the Rocky Mountain Region.

I am hoping to find counselors that are in the licensure process to take my survey. I am requesting your assistance in forwarding this email, which includes the Consent form with information for the participants, and the link to the survey.

I am requesting this email be forwarded to graduates of your counseling program who graduated Fall of 2009-Summer 2011. I appreciate any help you are willing to provide.

Thank you,

Bita Rivas
Argosy Denver Doctoral Candidate for the CES Program
