Sex-Role Stereotypes and Conceptions of Mental Health of Graduate Students in Counseling.
Terrill, Marilyn J.
The design of this study closely follows one by Broverman in order to test the applicability of results to graduate students in counseling and counselor education programs. Subjects were administered the Sex-Role Questionnaire; masculinity, femininity, and adult agreement and health scores were computed and compared by t-tests. Results indicated that there was high consensus only in regard to the characteristics of the healthy adult, sex unspecified. It was concluded that graduate counseling students had a triple standard of health--one for adults (sex unspecified), one for adult men, and one for adult women. It was found that these different standards of health did not clearly parallel sex-role stereotypes. The results were compared and contrasted with those of Broverman and implications for counselor education programs, counselor educators, and counseling graduate students were discussed. (Author/PC)
