  1. a Analysis of variance conducted for continuous variables, chi-squared tests conducted for categorical variables
  2. b Due to small sample sizes for clinicians who identified their discipline as psychologists (n = 20) and psychiatrists (n = 1), these were not examined
  3. c Excludes individuals who reported their highest degree as a bachelor’s degree, as this overlapped with clinical intern status
