Most Underappreciated

John H. Harvey

Oxford University Press

John H. Harvey reflects on his most underappreciated work: his research on attribution in conflict and separation in close relationships. He first explains how he became involved with Harold Kelley, one of his mentors, in studying attributional and close relationships in the 1970s. He then discusses his experiences in relation to Kelley's pioneering work on relationships before turning to his 1978 paper entitled “Attribution in the context of conflict and separation in close relationships,” written in collaboration with Gary Wells and Marlene Alvarez. That study asked thirty-six unmarried heterosexual couples to indicate their own attribution and predict their partner's attribution of the importance of different causal factors (for example, financial, faithfulness) in their conflict.

Keywords:   John H. Harvey, attribution, conflict, separation, close relationships, Harold Kelley, Gary Wells, Marlene Alvarez, heterosexual couples
