Abstract

In 1981, Golin, Sweeney, and Shaeffer found an association between attributional style and subsequent depression, using a cross-lag panel design. This finding is widely viewed as showing that attributional tendencies exert a unidirectional causal influence on the development of depressed affect. This article reports a failure to obtain a comparable result from a very similar study.
