An Analysis Of Ordinary Explanations In Clinical Attribution Research

An Analysis Of Ordinary Explanations In Clinical Attribution Research Ordinary explanation has a number of separate functions, which include labeling or description, moral evaluation, causal attribution, and self-presentation. Research on attributions for physical and mental disorders is analyzed using this framework, and the relevance of each aspect of explanation to clinical psychology is outlined. It is argued that the failure to observe these distinctions has led to an unnecessarily narrow view of attribution research and therapy. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology Guilford Press

Abstract

Ordinary explanation has a number of separate functions, which include labeling or description, moral evaluation, causal attribution, and self-presentation. Research on attributions for physical and mental disorders is analyzed using this framework, and the relevance of each aspect of explanation to clinical psychology is outlined. It is argued that the failure to observe these distinctions has led to an unnecessarily narrow view of attribution research and therapy.
