  • This study is a replication and expansion on the study completed by Mullen, Morris, and Lord in 2017 which aimed to determine how experience and reflection on ethical dilemmas impacts burnout amongst counselors. One hundred, sixty-four counselors completed an in-person survey that measured counselor burnout, perceived stress, and moral attentiveness. The data was analyzed using structural equation modelling. The data collected fit poorly with the original model of Mullen and colleagues (2017). However, there were strong covariances between burnout and stress, and between moral attentiveness and moral reflectiveness. This research contributes to the ongoing data on replication in psychology research as well as the literature surrounding the impact of ethical dilemmas on counselor well-being.
