A Study of Counseling Center Hiring Practices: What Does It Take for a Woman to be Hired? Student Development Report Volume XII, Number 1, 1974-75.
Kitchener, Karen G.; And Others
This study examined the effect of higher and lower self-acceptance on the ratings of three candidate types: "traditional" woman, "feminist" and sex-unspecified. The subjects were 81 Counseling Center Directors, Associate Directors, and Assistant Directors. Self acceptance was measured by the Phillips self-acceptance scale. Candidates were rated on six variables; each was a five-point Likert type scale. The results of 2 x 3 analyses of variance disclosed that subjects with higher self-acceptance are more likely to evaluate all candidates as more competent to help clients. The "feminist" candidate was rated significantly higher than the other two candidates on potential to deal with a wide range of emotional problems and preparation to develop outreach programs.
