|Title:||Couples' attributions about behaviours modulated by hearing impairment: Links with relationship satisfaction||Contributor(s):||Anderson, Donnah Lee (author); Noble, William Glass (author)||Publication Date:||2005||DOI:||10.1080/14992020500057699||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3130||Abstract:||The aim of the study was to examine the link between the nature of attributions made by partners about behaviours modulated by hearing loss, and overall relationship satisfaction. Forty-three hearing-impaired males and 23 hearing-impaired females together with their partners, each rated the hearing-impaired person's hearing ability, their own relationship satisfaction, and their attributions for hypothetical behaviours typically associated with impaired hearing. Attributions covered perceived causes of behaviour and perceived responsibility. The extent to which the behaviours typically associated with impaired hearing, were attributed to personal causes and responsibilities was inversely correlated with relationship satisfaction. Female partners (more than male partners, or females with impaired hearing) made attributions that accentuated the unpleasant implications of behaviour. Where attributions and ratings of degree of hearing loss were greater in partners than in the person with the loss, relationship satisfaction was lower. Implications for rehabilitation counselling are discussed.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||International Journal of Audiology, 44(4), p. 197-205||Publisher:||Taylor & Francis Inc||Place of Publication:||United States||ISSN:||1499-2027||Field of Research (FOR):||170112 Sensory Processes, Perception and Performance||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 58
