Book Title: Self-Efficacy: The Exercise of Control

Author: Albert Bandura

Book Description:

I learned about Bandura's Social Cognitive Theory, and the concept of self-efficacy, while I was in graduate school.  This particular book was published in 1997, the year that I received my PhD.  The theory and specific ideas surrounding sources of self-efficacy in different domains of living, and its implications for health, relationship functioning and vocational success continue to fascinate me and fuel my work.
