Abstract: In this article, based on my Carolyn Wood Sherif Memorial Award Address, I address questions of the viability of feminist practice in the current Zeitgeist. Using the framework of responding to questions raised by doctoral students about feminist therapy, I address how feminist practice aligns with the evidence-based practice movement, particularly those aspects focusing on empirically supported therapy relationships. I propose that feminist diagnostic strategies enhance cultural competence for therapists, thus better preparing practitioners for the clients of the twenty-first century. Finally, I discuss the question of who is a feminist therapist, addressing issues of gender that have long challenged the universality of feminist therapy's applications.

TL;DR: Therapists emphasized the importance of cultural competence, including a nonjudgmental attitude and knowledge of BDSM practices and cultural values, and faced boundary issues with clients who engage in BDSM.
Abstract: Consensual sadomasochism (Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, Sadism and Masochism; BDSM) is relatively common, but the experience of psychotherapists who work with clients who engage in BDSM has received little study. We conducted semistructured interviews with 14 therapists experienced in working with BDSM clients. Interviews were recorded, transcribed, and analyzed for thematic content. Therapists emphasized the importance of cultural competence, including a nonjudgmental attitude and knowledge of BDSM practices and cultural values. BDSM was rarely a central issue in therapy, relationship issues were clients' most common presenting concerns. Therapists who practiced BDSM themselves often encountered boundary issues with clients.

TL;DR: The results indicate that individuals with elevations on the PAI's INF and NIM scales often display decreased cognitive effort on the TOMM, which supports the hypothesis that personality assessment validity indicators have a modest but significant relationship with poor cognitive effort.
Abstract: This study addressed the relationship between Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI) validity indicators and cognitive effort measures on the Test of Memory Malingering (TOMM). Significant correlations were found between TOMM and some PAI validity scales. Factor analysis results found separate cognitive and personality components, but the Negative Impression Management (NIM) scale, a measure of response bias, had factor loadings on both the cognitive and the personality components. Follow-up hierarchical multiple regression and t-test analysis generally confirmed this result, and found that NIM and the Infrequency (INF) scale have significant relationships with the TOMM. The results indicate that individuals with elevations on the PAI's INF and NIM scales often display decreased cognitive effort on the TOMM. The current results support the hypothesis that personality assessment validity indicators have a modest but significant relationship with poor cognitive effort.
