Thoresen, Carl E.; Powell, Lynda H.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v60 n4 p595-604 Aug 1992
Sees research on Type A behavior as plagued by inadequate theory, insensitive assessment, and insufficient interventions. Discusses conceptual models (transactional model, social cognitive theories, and associative network theory); questions view of hostility as only pathogenic feature of Type A behavior; and describes ethnographic gap in Type A research. Encourages study of Type A behavior within expanded conceptual perspective. (Author/NB)
