Clinicians' Hypotheses Regarding Clients' Problems: Are They Less Likely to Hypothesize Sexual Abuse in Male Compared to Female Clients?
Holmes, Guy; Offen, Liz
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n6 p493-501 Jun 1996
Sixty-one clinical psychologists evaluated a case summary of an adult client which incorporated indicators of possible sexual abuse. Significantly more clinicians hypothesized that the female client (compared to the male client) had been sexually abused in childhood. More recently qualified clinicians and clinicians whose predominant orientation was psychodynamic (rather than cognitive-behavioral) were more likely to hypothesize sexual abuse. (Author/DB)
