Depression and Distortion in the Attribution of Causality
Rizley, Ross
Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 87, 1, 32-48, Feb 78
Two cognitive models of depression have attracted considerable attention recently: Seligman's (1975) learned helplessness model and Beck's (1967) cognitive schema approach. Describes each model and, in two studies, evaluates the assumption that depression is associated with systematic distortion in cognition regarding causal and controlling relations between one's behavior and consequent events, and also examines the different predictions on the precise nature of the distortion.
