McCarthy, Christopher; Mejia, Olga L.; Liu, Hsin-tine Tina
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v25 n1 p104-21 Mar 2000
Describes a four-stage model based on cognitive appraisal theory that attempts to specify the precise links between cognitive evaluations of events and resultant discrete emotions. Presents a case study with multicultural group members, which suggests that use of the model may be particularly constructive with these groups. By identifying linkages between appraisals and emotions, this approach can be used to facilitate greater understanding among group members. (Author/JDM)
