Causal Attribution and Personal Responsibility for Health and Disease.
Health Education (Washington D.C.), v14 n2 p51-54 Mar-Apr 1983
Health educators may be expecting the public to accept too much personal responsibility for disease. Genetic, environmental, and other factors may be as important as health-promoting behavior in avoiding disease. If health educators overstate the role of personal responsibility for health, they may lose credibility with the public. (PP)
