Abstract

Attribution theory originated from related research in social psychology. After
more than 60 years of development, research results have become one of the
important theories for understanding human behavior. Positive attribution methods
can promote the individual's subsequent behavior and help improve the individual's
sense of self-efficacy. In this study, first-year students in higher vocational schools were
selected as subjects. Two methods of self-attribution training and teacher attribution
training were used to conduct attribution training for students with low self-efficacy six
times, and compare the self-efficacy of students before and after the training .Through
research, it is found that the self-efficacy scores of the subjects in the self-attribution
group are significantly different before and after the experiment. That is, compared
with teacher attribution training, self-attribution training can improve students' sense
of self-efficacy.
As one of the important contents of higher vocational education, mental health
education should have a positive effect on the level of students' mental health. There
is still a lot of room for improvement in the self-efficacy of vocational students. To
ensure the effectiveness of the course, self-attribution training can be more applied to
the course.
