Differences in Psychologists' Ratings of Older and Younger Clients.
Ray, Diane C.; And Others
Gerontologist, v27 n1 p82-86 Feb 1987
Presented 192 clinical psychologists with clinical vignettes in which client ages varied. Respondents rated older depressed and older agoraphobic clients as significantly less ideal than younger clients with identical symptoms and histories. Older depressed and manic clients also were given significantly poorer prognoses than younger clients. Older psychologists gave more favorable ratings on the idealness of older clients. (Author)
