The Effects of a Course on Counseling Women Upon Attitudes Toward the Rights of Women.
Kaplan, Phyllis; Nickerson, Eileen
This study evaluates the effects of a six-week intensive course on Counseling Women upon attitudes toward the rights and roles of women. The experimental group consisted of 12 students enrolled in this course. The comparison group consisted of 12 students enrolled in a different course, Introduction to Pupil Personnel Services, within the same department. The Attitudes Toward Women Scale (Spence & Helmreich, 1972) served as the pre and posttest measure. A comparison of the pretest scores of both groups indicated that the experimental group was significantly more liberal in its attitudes toward the rights and roles of women than was the comparison group. In addition, a comparison of the pre and posttest scores of both groups indicated that the course was an effective method of significantly liberalizing attitudes toward the rights and roles of women. The control group showed no such significant change in attitudes. (Author)
