Three Tests of the Learned Helplessness Model of Depression
Blaney, Paul H.; Willis, Max H.
Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 87, 1, 131-6, Feb 78
Three studies, testing predictions derived from Seligman's helplessness model of depression and generally supported by earlier research, are reported. The first addressed the finding that depressed individuals evidence a perception of noncontingency, the second tested the prediction that undergraduates in whom helplessness had been induced would evidence a perception of noncontingency, the third examined the finding that depressed individuals experience a diminution of learning and problem solving.
