The Counselor's Challenge - Why Not Let Her Be.
Peters, Dianne S.; Miller, Richard E.
At an all-day workshop for 50 counselors from public schools and community colleges, researchers presented a 15-item attitudinal questionnaire regarding perspectives, characteristics, and conceptual information about women. The findings of this research are: (1) male counselors are either neutral or slightly positive in attitudes towards women working, while female counterparts hold significantly more positive attitudes toward women and careers, (2) general attitudinal changes for both male and female counselors become focused on the counseling process itself; (3) attitudes can be changed regarding careers for women; and (4) both male and female counselors are influenced by sex stereotypes. This research suggests that, although sex-stereotyping may be invidious and subtle, it can be overcome by a reasonable and deliberate presentation of factual data. (Author/JLL)
