Male therapists no longer engage in sexual stereotyping in their views of mentally healthy men and women as 15 previous studies had shown. Both male and female therapists, both psychiatrists and psychologists, held a single androgynous standard of mental health for both men and women. Psychologists scored higher on this androgyny factor than psychiatrists. Therapists with many women patients scored higher on this androgyny factor than therapists with few women patients.
