This paper extends a previous proposal of an argumentationbased approach to modelling articulated decision making contexts. The proposed approach encompasses a variety of argument and attack schemes aimed at representing basic knowledge and reasoning patterns for decision support. The paper draws a preliminary map between computational argumentation and structural models of personality using as a basic reference Freudís three-entities theory. Formal backing to this approach is provided by the AFRA formalism, a recently proposed extension of Dungís argumentation framework. An example concerning a decision problem about medical treatments is adopted to illustrate the approach.
