About the Authors
  • People often try to figure out why they acted the way they did or why others close to them acted in a certain way. The thoughts we have about why things happened are known as attributions. People have these thoughts about communication behavior, and they communicate the thoughts that they have. This book brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines whose work focuses on the interplay of attribution processes and communication behavior in close relationships.

    • Focuses on the influence of emotions on attributions and communication
    • The interplay between attributions and communication in marriage
    • Offers directions for thinking about attributions and communication

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The ultimate question, of course concerns whether this work will serve to stimulate future research in the area that adds to our understanding of attributions and relationships. I believe it will and I encourage individuals who are interested in the study of close relationships to take a look at the chapters included in this text." Contemporary Psychology

    "Notable not only for the quality of its contributors, but also for the breadth with which applications of attribution theory are covered and for the depth with which important questions about the nature of the theory are addressed." Journal of Social and Personal Relationships
