Sex-Role Stereotypes and Clinical Judgements: Negative Bias in Psychotherapy.
Billingsley, Donna
Sixty-four volunteer male and female psychotherapists from various disciplines with 5.83 average years experience and case loads of 17.88 hours per week were studied with the aid of a questionnaire to rate possible bias toward women counselees. Cultural expectations are examined along with response bias. The study found that personal agreement had a significant impact upon one group's differential perception of male and female role stereotypes. The finding that therapists differ in their conceptualization of sex-role stereotypes has theoretical, methodological and practical implications. (Author/CKJ)
