Attributional style and self-reported depression among adolescents inpatients


Journal Article

Eighteen adolescent inpatients with various diagnoses completed the Children's Depression Inventory and the Children's Attributional Style Questionnaire. The correlations between the two scales were consistent with those obtained among nonclinical samples of children and adolescents. The data were consistent with their reformulated learned helpless theory of depression. Suggestions were offered for subsequent research with depressed adolescent inpatients. © 1991 by The Haworth Press, Inc. All rights reserved.
