Variations In Couples' Egalitarian Attitudes: Implications for Therapists
Child and Family Studies
Working with couples can be a challenge for a therapist due to the importance of deciphering their expectations of roles within the relationship. Although current literature has focused on many aspects of egalitarian attitudes, there has not been a holistic approach to reviewing predictive factors about these views in the south-east region of the United States where traditional values are prevalent. This study begins to fill that void by reviewing how 266 participants vary in egalitarian views living in the south-east. Results showed a positive relationship between egalitarian attitudes and religious affiliation, religiosity, and education. Suggestions for therapists and how this information can positively influence the therapeutic relationship when working with couples have been provided.
