Clinical psychologists’ research activity is important for the advancement of the clinical psychology profession but relatively few clinical psychologists appear to engage in research activity. In a national sample of male and female UK trainee clinical psychologists, trainees’ research self-efficacy was strongly positively correlated with intention to do research in the future. Identification with traditionally masculine traits also predicted research intention. Clinical psychology training courses might help trainees to develop their research self-efficacy by enhancing the research training environment, but because research activity tends to be seen as stereotypically a more male activity, and the majority of trainees are female, it may also be worth challenging or encouraging trainees to reflect on stereotypical views of gender and research.
