Cognitive Vulnerability and Hopelessness among Correctional Inmates: A State of Mind Model.
Bonner, Ronald L.; Rich, Alexander R.
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v17 n3-4 p113-22 1992
Tested interactional "state of mind" model of hopelessness among prisoners. Inmates (n=146) completed measures of problem-solving appraisal, social alienation, irrational beliefs, reasons for living, hopelessness, and depression. Jail stress was related to hopelessness through interaction with cognitive mediators. Depression, low appraised problem-solving effectiveness, and few reasons for living also had main effects in predicting hopelessness. (Author/NB)
