Raises objections to G. Stricker's (see record 1977-29882-001) critique of sex bias research and its implications for psychotherapy. It is argued that considerations such as size of effects observed in analog studies, item content in influential studies, and conflicting findings obtained later in time do not diminish the importance of evidence revealing a double standard among clinicians. The article discusses influences, both probable and observed, of bias on psychotherapeutic treatment. It is suggested that Stricker's values led to differential application of scientific rigor and biased conclusions. Clinical investigation is discussed as a necessary direction for further study.
