Male Therapists' Clinical Bias: Influence of Client Gender Roles and Therapist Gender Role Conflict.
Wisch, Andrew F.; Mahalik, James R.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v46 n1 p51-60 Jan 1999
Examines male therapists' gender-role conflict, client sexual orientation, and client emotional expression as they interrelate with clinical judgments about male clients. Results indicate that therapist gender-role-conflict factors, in combination with client sexual orientation and emotional expression, were associated with therapists' ratings of male client's prognosis and how much therapists liked, had empathy for, had comfort with, and had willingness to see the male client.
