Understanding Gender Differences in Referral of Children to Mental Health Services.
Green, Michelle T.; And Others
Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, v4 n3 p182-90 Jul 1996
Gender differences in referral for child mental health services were explored through a survey of attitudes among 135 elementary teachers. Teachers were less likely to refer students with good academic performance, and tended to expect girls to transcend internalizing problems through maturation. Externalizing problems were thought to merit referral more often. (Author/PB)
