  • Staff views of female and male clients, including staff atti­tudes and beliefs regarding posttreatment functioning and ex­pectations.

  • Staff behaviors toward female and male clients regarding their expectations, attitudes and behaviors regarding posttreatment functioning and the treatment process.

  • Female and male client’s views of staff and treatment and client attitudes and beliefs regading posttreatment function­ing and expectations.
