dc.description.abstractThe purpose of the present study was to examine the effects of locus of control orientation upon problem solving skills acquisition by marital couples. Couples were assigned to one of three treatment groups based upon their locus of control orientation: (a) internal (N=8 couples), (b) external (N=5 couples), and (c) mixed (i.e., one spouse internal, one spouse external) (N=7 couples). Couples in all three groups were given an eight-week, 24-hour, mutual problem solving skills program. Results indicated that although all three treatment groups significantly increased their problem solving ability, there were no significant differences between the treatment groups in problem solving ability. Discussion centered on those factors responsible for the lack of treatment group differences on problem solving skills acquisition.
