B. L. Long,
Bull. Amer. Acad. Psychiatry & the Law 22(2): 195-203, 1994.
Forty-four women and three men who were plaintiffs in sexual harassment and sexual discrimination cases were evaluated by experts for the plaintiffs and by the author, an expert in these cases, for the defense. There were considerable differences in the diagnostic assessments. Some reasons for these differences and their implications for forensic evaluations are discussed.
