Abstract

Inspired by systemic psychotherapies, the article introduces a unitizing and coding system for causal attributions. It focuses on one dimension: the inference field of causal explanations up to and including the triad, so far ignored by attributional studies. A five categories coding system from monadic to triadic explanations is provided and made possible by a unitizing system characterized by a contextual approach. This takes into account links between single explicative units through which the overall explanation is articulated. A detailed unitizing and coding system guide with examples taken from a study carried out by the authors is provided. Suitable also for complex written texts, the 1 to 3 is highly reliable. Joint application with multidimensional coding systems is discussed
