The authors investigated the impact that racial stereotypes have on counselor trainees’ perceptions of the attributes and behaviors of ethnically diverse male clients. Two studies were conducted in which participants were counselor trainees (Study 1, N = 58; Study 2, N = 75) who received a case study in which a male student sought counseling for problems affecting his school work. No differences were revealed in Study 1. In Study 2, counselor perceptions of client attributes differed across client race-ethnicity. The results are discussed in terms of their implications for training counselors, particularly regarding multicultural courses and workshops.
