Locus of Control Perceptions among Conjugally Bereaved Older Adults: A Pilot Study.
McKibbin, Christine L.; And Others
International Journal of Aging & Human Development, v44 n1 p37-45 1997
Tested the malleability of two personality measures among recently widowed older adults in self-help support groups. Findings support the differentiation between the measures. The trait locus of control remained stable but the group intervention had a direct positive effect, reducing depression for those in the self-help support groups. (RJM)
