Report of the Task Force
on Sex Bias and Sex-Role
Stereotyping in
Psychotherapeutic Practice


JEAN HOLROYD * (American Psychological Association)

In July 1974, responding to requests by the American Psychological Association (APA) Committee on Women in Psychology, the Board of Professional Affairs established a task force to: (1) examine the extent and manner of sex bias and sex-role stereotyping in psychotherapeutic practice as they directly affect women as students, practitioners, and

Task Force members included Annette Brodsky and Jean Holroyd, Cochairs, plus Carolyn Payton, Eli Rubinstein, Paul Rosenkrantz, Julia Sherman, and Freyda Zell. Tena Cummings was an ex-officio participant, and Carolyn Suber was APA staff liaison. Julia Sherman was responsible for the review of literature, and the initial data analysis was voluntarily donated by Gayle Janzen of the University of Alabama and Susan Pirhalla of Bryce State Hospital, Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

This study was authorized by the Board of Professional Affairs (BPA) of the American Psychological Association as an issue of sufficient concern to psychology at large to merit study; however, the report does not necessarily reflect the views of BPA or APA in general.
