Hardy, Dana M.; Johnson, Mark E.
Journal of Alcohol and Drug Education, v37 n2 p94-102 Win 1992
Psychology graduate students (n=185) responded to case descriptions in which client gender, alcoholism, and socioeconomic status (SES) were manipulated. Found consistent, negative effect of client alcoholism on several prognostic variables, including decision to hospitalize; tendency for female clients to be thought to require more therapy sessions than males; and trend toward negative bias toward lower SES clients.
