Age, Gender and Health Bias in Counselors: An Empirical Analysis.
Danzinger, Paula R.; Welfel, Elizabeth Reynolds
Journal of Mental Health Counseling, v22 n2 p135-49 Apr 2000
Study compares the responses to the Age Bias Questionnaire among professional clinical counselors, psychologists, and clinical social workers. Results indicate that mental health professionals judged older clients significantly less competent and less likely to improve than younger clients. They also judged female clients as less competent than male clients regardless of age. This pattern was consistent across all three professions. (Contains 48 references.) (Author/GCP)
