Kistner, Janet A.; Ziegert, Dannah I.; Castro, Rafael; Robertson, Bruce
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v47 n3 p336-54 Jul 2001
Examined relationship of helplessness exhibited in 112 kindergarten children's responses to a challenging, developmentally appropriate task with depression and negative self-worth 5 years later. Found that helplessness in kindergarten predicted more depressive symptoms, as reported by children and their teachers, and more negative feelings of worth. Explored mechanisms underlying helplessness and implications for early intervention to reduce risk. (Author/KB)
