The Influence of Coping Strategies on the Manifestation of Learned Helplessness.
Cullen, Joy L.; Boersma, Frederic, J.
Contemporary Educational Psychology, v7 n4 p346-56 Oct 1982
Untrained normal achievers attributed failure to adoption of specific task strategies, while untrained learning disabled boys attributed failure to task difficulty. Characteristics of learned helplessness were apparent in the impaired performance of the learning-disabled boys. Normal achievers appeared to have developed active and independent strategies for coping with failure. (Author/PN)
