Abstract

This study tested for the presence of a differential relationship between attribution and depression for male and female college students. Results yielded no significant differences within male or female positive or negative internality, stability, globality, or composite attribution scores. However, a significant correlation was found between Attributional Style Questionnaire composite negative and Beck Depression Inventory scores for males, but not for females.
