Kassing, Leslee R.; Prieto, Loreto R.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v81 n4 p455-61 Fall 2003
Surveyed counselors-in-training regarding their acceptance of rape myths and their willingness to make blame-based attributions toward a male victim of rape. Results suggested male counselor trainees tended to endorse the greatest degree of acceptance of rape myths. Trainees of both sexes thought that a male rape victim who showed no resistance to his attacker should have done so. (Contains 32 references and 2 tables.) (Author)
