In this chapter, the authors describe their research on the role of perceived control in adjusting to stressful life events. Howard Tennen begins the historical account by revisiting his experimental studies of perceived control in the 1970s and his transition to field research on the role of control in adjusting to health challenges. Patricia Frazier continues the story with her research in the 1990s on the role of attributions in adjustment to rape and then to the development and testing of a temporal model of control. Liza Meredith describes the translational work she has done with Frazier on developing and testing interventions to increase a sense of personal control.
