A Coping Perspective of Human Learned Helplessness
In this chapter I attempt to integrate the ideas presented in previous chapters into a coping conceptualization of human LH. First I elaborate on the coping process that underlies LH effects, the direct and indirect antecedents of these effects, and the mediational sequences that go from helplessness training to performance changes. Then I deal with the psychological meanings of reactance and LH deficits and elaborate on their functional and dysfunctional aspects as well as on their generalization over time and across situations.
