Williams, Dorothy T.; Hershenson, David B.; Fabian, Ellen S.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v43 n2 p106-12 Win 2000
Study found significant relationships between casual attributions of disabilities and the rehabilitation approach chosen. Attributions to fate correlated with accepting the disability as one's lot in life. Attributions to natural or medical causes correlated with choosing medical or retraining services; Attributions to societally imposed barriers correlated with removing the barriers rather than changing the individual.
