Effects of Therapist and Client Characteristics on the Assessment of Maladjustment and Prognosis.
Teri, Lynda; Hakola, Janis
This study investigated the effects of therapist gender, client gender and sex-stereotypic behavior on ratings of maladjustment and prognosis made on four bogus clinical descriptions. Gender was manipulated by changing sex of client within each of two sex-stereotypic behavioral descriptions yielding two sex-appropriate and two sex-inappropriate bogus clinical descriptions. A three-way least squares analysis of variance indicated female therapists rated female and male clients more maladjusted than did male therapists. Behaviors stereotyped as female were rated more maladjusted than behaviors stereotyped as male, regardless of client gender. There were no significant differences on rating of prognosis. (Author)
