Causal Attribution, Perceived Benefits, and Morbidity After a Heart Attack: An 8-Year Study.
Affleck, Glenn; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n1 p29-35 Feb 1987
Interviewed heart attack victims (N=287) seven weeks and eight years after their attack. Explored interrelations among causal attributions for the attack, survivor morbidity, and heart attack recurrence. Found that patients who cited benefits from their misfortune seven weeks after the first attack were less likely to have another attack and had lower levels of morbidity. (Author/ABB)
