These questions were for assessing clients on their preferences for these areas of demographics in their therapists. They were part of the client questionnaire in TMatch. Therapists were asked equivalent questions in the therapist questionnaire, or course without the questions about the importance of the preferences. Clients were then matched to therapists based on the degree to which their preferences matched the therapists self-assessments. Although there were predictions that therapists would not be willing to answer these questions, there wasn't a single therapist in the study who expressed the slightest amount of reluctance to answer any of these questions.
