This research examined the relations between masculine gender role conflict and men's attitudes about counseling. Twenty-five college aged males completed the Gender Role Conflict Scale and the Attitudes Toward Seeking Professional Psychological Health Scale-Short Form. Participants then completed sex sessions with one of two licensed counselors and their attitudes were assessed again following treatment. Results indicated men who experience higher gender role conflict, also have lower attitudes about mental health counseling. Limitations and implications of the current study are discussed as well.
