Symptoms, Causes and Cures
Learned Helplessness is a behavioral phenomenon becoming more common in classrooms across the country. It is not an invented disorder, but a chronic and serious condition. It is estimated that 30% of our student population is susceptible and LH will usually affect the most social, outgoing and aggressive student personalities.
Do these symptoms sound familiar? Do you know students or young adults that give up easily? Won’t try new things? Blame others for their failure? Develop a negative attitude and negative expectation? Resort to sarcasm and become apathetic?
We used to label these students “lazy”, but research indicates that certain traumatic events can cause the brain to stop producing important neurotransmitters, specifically Norepenephrine, Dopamine, Serotonin and Adrenaline; resulting in less fuel for the brain.
Research has uncovered some basic causes for LH. Number one is having weak role models. Yes, the people we hang with do have an important influence on our motivation and success. Number two is a traumatic event like a relationship coming to an end, losing an important athletic contest, flunking a test or death in the family. Number three is that caregivers (parents, teachers, coaches) do too much for the students and soon they expect to be rescued from their mistakes instead of working through them on their own. Number four and most important is a distorted self-image. This self-image is usually characterized by a negative, global, and permanent explanatory style.
