Frustration-Instigated Behavior and Learned Helplessness.
Winefield, Anthony H.
Journal of Psychology, v102 p267-74 Jul 1979
Compares M. E. P. Seligman's recent work on learned helplessness with N. R. F. Maier's 30-year-old work on frustration behavior. Notes striking similarities between the two approaches. Concludes that the learned helplessness model might explain the "abnormal fixations" that Maier reported. (Author/RL)
