The Use of Bidimensional Scales to Assess Social Workers' Attitudes Toward Lesbians and Gay Men (Research Note) Social Work Research read online review & book description:

In this research note we provide a rationale for the use of gender-specific subscales, rather than a single global measurement device, to assess respondents' differential attitudes toward lesbians and gay men. We then evaluate the reliability and validity of equivalent forms of the Attitudes toward Lesbians and Gay Men scale (ATLG) (Herek, 1994) when administered to professional social workers. Following the psychometric testing of these instruments, we compared the responses of 288 heterosexual social workers to each of the items of the Attitudes toward Gay Men (ATG) (Herek, 1994) and the Attitudes toward Lesbians (ATL) (Herek, 1994) subscales.
