Attributions for Pride, Anger, and Guilt among Incarcerated Minority Adolescents.
Hudley-Paul, Cynthia A.
Two studies investigate causal attributions among minority adolescents. The first investigates attributions for the emotions of anger, pride, and guilt among 26 incarcerated male adolescents. Relatively few causes are found for anger and guilt, and a larger variety of causes are cited for pride. A follow-up study then compares causal attributions of 56 incarcerated adolescents with those of 57 secondary school adolescents, both male and female, for the affect of pride. The results show that incarcerated youth typically attribute feelings of pride to activities culturally appropriate for adults. In addition, females cite school success as a source of pride at twice the rate as do males. The importance of this research for understanding the impact of typical life experiences on at-risk youth is discussed. Statistical data are presented in four tables. A 20-item list of references is included. (Author/SLD)
