Learned Helplessness
Hooker, Carol E.
Social Work, 21, 3, 194-197, May 76
Learned helplessness--the belief that a person's actions have no influence on the outcome of an event--is similar in many respects to the crisis state and depression. The author shows how this impaired social and psychological functioning occurs and identifies techniques that the social worker can use to prevent it. (Author)
