Countertransference Reactions to Lesbian Clients: The Role of Homophobia, Counselor Gender, and Countertransference Management.
Gelso, Charles J.; And Others
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v42 n3 p356-64 Jul 1995
Examined male and female counselors' countertransference reactions to lesbian versus heterosexual client actresses, and the role of counselor homophobia and countertransference management ability in countertransference reactions. Counselors did not exhibit more countertransference with lesbian clients. Countertransference management did not correlate with countertransference reactions, though homophobia correlated with counselor avoidance of lesbian clients. (LKS)
