Attribution Theory and Crisis Intervention Therapy.
Skilbeck, William M.
It was proposed that existing therapeutic procedures may influence attributions about emotional states. Therefore an attributional analysis of crisis intervention, a model of community-based, short-term consultation, was presented. This analysis suggested that crisis intervention provides attributionally-relevant information about both the source of the crisis state and the source of the crisis resolution. Structural and process features of the consultation facilitate attributing the crisis state to an external source and attributing the crisis resolution to an internal source. Implications of this analysis for the role of the crisis consultant, for the setting of goals in crisis work and in the training of consultants, and for the further extension of attributional analysis were discussed.
