Mahalik, James R.; Kivlighan, Dennis M., Jr.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v35 n3 p237-42 Jul 1988
Tested mildly depressed undergraduates (N=52) in treatment for depression using cognitive-behavioral, self-help manual. Results suggest that Holland's Realistic personality types are most successful in terms of reduction of depression scores, whereas Enterprising types are least successful in terms of attrition. Low superiority, high generalized self-efficacy, and internal locus of control were related to success. (Author/NB)
