Using Spoken Attributions to Classify Abusive Families.
Silvester, Joanne; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n10 p1221-32 Oct 1995
This study examined spoken attributions of 18 families during diagnostic therapy following serious child abuse. Patterns of attributions successfully predicted classification of families by therapists as good, uncertain, and poor in terms of prognosis for rehabilitation. Case accounts illustrate use of attributional analysis to understand the individual nature of child abuse. (Author/SW)
