Dr. Mikulincer accounts for the complex nature of the phenomenon by focusing on cognitive, motivational, and emotional processes, and then details a new coping perspective to deal with uncontrollable events. Hisgroundbreaking work will become an essential reference for all future work in the field.|
From the Publisher:
Focuses on the cognitive, motivational, and emotional processes that intervene between repeated exposure to uncontrollable events and subsequent helplessness behavior, and presents a new framework for viewing the phenomenon that assumes that the underlying cause of learned helplessness (LH) is a disruption in the person-environment equilibrium brought on by the exposure to uncontrollable events. Covers the empirical and theoretical basis of human LH, animal and human theories, coping strategies, and mediators of LH effects. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
