In this pilot study, seven caregivers of loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease completed an online survey involving the following variables: internal and external attribution, caregiver resentment, and pre-morbid and current relationship quality. Given the small number of participants and a Bonferroni adjustment to correct for experiment-wide error, no significant associations were found using Pearson correlations. However, significant trends were present for current relationship quality and caregiver resentment level; internal attributions and resentment level; and internal attributions and pre-morbid relationship quality. A follow-up study is planned to look further into these associations with a greater number of participants, in order to aid in the development of treatments and interventions.
