Does a Belief in a "Just World" Affect Health Care Providers' Reactions to Perinatal Illness?
Clyman, Ronald I.; And Others
Journal of Medical Education, v55 n6 p538-39 Jun 1980
A test was used to assess the degree to which pediatricians and nurses specializing in perinatal care believe in a just world in which good is rewarded and evil is punished. Results indicate that the cause of some perinatal problems are more likely to be attributed to parents by health providers with a greater belief in a just world. (JMD)
