Revision with unchanged content. In higher education, new faculty members experience many stressors, including isolation, overwork, and role confusion. Mentorship, particularly related to research, publication, tenure and promotion may alleviate these stressors and increase job satisfaction and performance for new faculty. Though research mentorship can benefit all, special consideration must be given to faculty women. Because women cite lack of publications as a primary stressor during the pre-tenure years, having a senior faculty person in a research mentor role may alleviate anxiety and stress. This book provides both historical and contemporary overviews of mentor relationships through traditional and feminist lenses. It also defines and clarifies research mentorship. Finally, it outlines a quantitative research study examining the experiences of male and female pre-tenured counselor educators with research mentorship. Implications for counselor educators are discussed. This book is written for both tenured and pre-tenured counselor educators, mentorship scholars and practitioners, and anyone in higher education committed to the recruitment and retention of quality faculty members.
