Homonegativity among Professional School Counselors: An Exploratory Study
Satcher, Jamie; Leggett, Mark
Professional School Counseling, v11 n1 p10-16 Oct 2007
Homonegativity among female professional school counselors (n = 215) representing a single Southern state was measured using adapted versions of the Homonegativity Scale (HS) and the Modern Homonegativity Scale (MHS). With the use of factorial analysis of variance, significant differences (p less than 0.05) were found when HS and MHS scores were compared by (a) having a gay or lesbian friend or personal acquaintance, (b) frequency of church attendance, (c) participation in training about gay or lesbian sexual orientations in the 12 months prior to the study, and (d) having worked as a counselor with gay or lesbian people. Significant differences (p less than 0.05) were found only for MHS scores when responses were compared by (a) race and (b) political affiliation. (Contains 2 tables.)
