To Succeed or Not to Succeed: A Critical Review of Issues in Learned Helplessness.
Mark, Sandra Fay
Contemporary Educational Psychology, v8 n1 p1-19 Jan 1983
A critical analysis of theoretical and methodological issues in research on learned helplessness is presented. As studied in achievement settings using achievement tasks, learned helplessness is perceived as maladaptive behavior. It has not been studied as an adaptive response to situational demands. New directions and educational implications are suggested. (Author/CM)
