Sex Bias, Diagnosis, and DSM-III.
Hamilton, Sandra; And Others
Sex Roles, v15 n5-6 p269-74 Sep 1986
Sixty-five clinical psycholgists independently diagnosed 18 written case histories on the basis of 110 DSM-III categories. Females were rated significantly more histrionic than males exhibiting identical histrionic symptoms, but males were not rated as more antisocial than females. The findings suggest that vague diagnostic descriptions promote sex stereotyping and sex bias in disagnosis. (KH)
