Homonegativity among Alabama Counselors
Satcher, Jamie; Leggett, Mark
Alabama Counseling Association Journal, v32 n2 p1-11 Fall 2006
Members of the Alabama Counseling Association were surveyed to examine the extent to which they demonstrate homonegativity (prejudicial attitudes toward homosexuality). The majority of the counselors did not appear to approach homosexuality from traditional prejudices, although almost one-third believed homosexuality to be immoral. The counselors appeared to have mixed views about current issues important to persons who are gay or lesbian, with many expressing homonegative beliefs about equality and social justice for persons who are gay or lesbian. Discussion of the findings focuses on the ethical obligations of counselors to respect diversity, promote the well-being of persons whom they serve, and to be advocates for social change.
