Studying Sex Discrimination in Counseling Psychology.
Harway, Michele
This paper describes some of the factors which affect research on sex discrimination in counseling, and also presents some of the findings of a recent study on this topic. One suggestion made is that while the counselor's role has traditionally been a passive exploration of student options, it would be better for counselors actively to encourage women to seek nontraditional careers. Otherwise, their socialization may prompt them to consider only the most traditional career options. In addition, the author discusses several key issues for future researchers to deal with: (1) to specifiy what is meant by sex discrimination and to achieve some consistency in the use of this term; (2) to research the total process of counseling rather than its component elements; (3) to acquire more information about sex discrimination in personal/social counseling, since research there is even more limited than in career counseling; and (4) to acquire more information on the differential impact of counseling on men and women.
