Robertson, John; Fitzgerald, Louise F.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v37 n1 p3-9 Jan 1990
Examined therapists' (N=47) verbal responses to one of two videotaped simulations of depressed White male client. Tapes differed in client's occupational and family roles shown as gender-traditional or nontraditional. Counselors evaluated client, assigned diagnosis, and proposed treatment plan. Results suggest that client's gender role affected aspects of therapists' behavior, including attribution of pathology and problem etiology. (Author/PVV)
