A previous study by C. J. Salts, B. C. Balmer, and K. S. Andreassen in 1985 used the Screening Criteria Questionnaire (developed by B. C. Balmer and E. Dickinson in 1983) to determine if 69 AAMFT Approved Supervisors, reporting different theoretical orientations, vary in their ratings of importance of given selection criteria in applicants for supervision. The present study continued analysis of that research to determine the effects of sex of the supervisor and setting of the supervision on ratings of selection criteria. Sample means were compared for 7 characteristics of the 66-item questionnaire to determine significant differences in ratings. Results indicated that none of the mean ratings of items differed significantly when settings of the supervision were compared. Only one item, applicant’s ability to pay for supervision, was found to differ significantly (less than .05) according to sex of the supervisor. Male supervisors rated this item higher in importance than females. Conclusions and implications for further research of selection criteria are presented.
