Comparison of Self-Help Books for Coping with Loss: Expectations and Attributions.
Ogles, Benjamin M.; And Others
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v38 n4 p387-93 Oct 1991
Examined effectiveness of 4 self-help books given randomly to 64 participants who had recently experienced divorce or breakup. Books were either behaviorally oriented, based on stage theories, or focused on general life crises. All groups significantly improved in depressive, general psychiatric, and loss-specific symptoms from pretest to posttest but did not differ significantly from each other at posttest. (Author/NB)
