Learned helplessness is a psychological condition in which a human being or an animal has learned to act or behave helpless in a particular situation, even when it has the power to change its unpleasant or even harmful circumstance. Learned helplessness theory is the view that clinical depression and related mental illnesses result from a perceived absence of control over the outcome of a situation (Seligman, 1975)
Yes I have to go there my degree says so!! So what the heck is this talking about? You know those people that always run out of money, gas,food,etc.
What about all those harrowing emergencies??? Nothing can wait, everything is life or death in that moment yet an hour later or a moment later nothing is wrong as they have moved onto the next person to lay their sob story on to get what they need. Are you dealing with this or people like them, what you surround yourself with will also become your reality. Look at who is currently in your life and why. Is it draining you or beneficial to you. Or are you that person who is constantly in need. This may be a very much needed wake up call.

We’re going to be discussing LEARNED HELPLESSNESS, how to recognize it, its causes and some possible solutions. And we’re going to throw in FEAR, GUILT AND SHAME because that’s how it begins… at least for humans.
For me, there is nothing that is more sad and heart-wrenching to see than a person who is so down that they believe they can’t get up. We all have “our days” where life is tough or some decisions need to be made that are unpleasant.
Some people through circumstance or behavioral training simply CANNOT or WILL NOT make any decision. THEY HAVE LOST ALL HOPE as a result of this Learned Helplessness.
How does someone recover from situations like this? All joking aside, this particular pattern is shows up in my office most often and it not addressed doesn’t seem to go away on it own and can become GENERATIONAL (yes, you can give it to your kids and grandkids).
If this sounds like you or someone you know… TUNE IN ON THURSDAY and let’s get to the bottom of this so you can get back to what you want to be doing… living your life with HAPPY ABANDON

Talk to you then,
Department of Education: Enforce the ADA, don't use Higher Education to promote "Learned Helplessness". In the summer of 1982, I was the best student in Organic Chemistry at UC Santa Cruz. A month later I ran, from Tuolumne Meadows, over Vogelsang Pass to Yosemite Valley (29.9 miles in 11 hours). My love of the outdoors caught up with me a year later when I fell 140 feet rock-climbing on July 16, 1983.
After 24 years of education (I kid you not), I have few friends, a meager social life, no wife or children and poverty. I do not have job skills or the knowledge required to engage in scientific research. I could not survive without disability payments, because I worked with three different disabled student organizations for 24 years: DSS and DRC (at UC Santa Cruz) and DSP&S (at Cabrillo College). All three intentionally subjected me to, Learned Helplessness. I have started a petition to make it so what was done to me will never happen to another person. To access the petition I have started, type the four words, “petition education ada chang.org”, into the search bar of google, bing or yahoo, while using Firefox, Safari, Opera or Chrome. Click on the link that has, “Enforce the ADA,” and take it from there. Join me tonight for an interesting conversation with Anthony Walton on Dream Catchers with Les Pau!
Learned optimism is the idea in positive psychology that a talent for joy, like any other, can be cultivated. It is contrasted with learnedhelplessness. Learning optimism is done by consciously challenging any negative self talk.
Martin Seligman’s came to the concept of learned optimism through a scientific study of learned helplessness, the idea that a certain reoccurring negative event is out of the person's control. As he was performing tests to study helplessness further, he began to wonder why some people resisted helplessness-conditioning. He noticed that, while some subjects blamed themselves for negative outcomes, others blamed the experiment for setting them up to fail.
Seligman shifted his focus to attempting to discover what it is that keeps some people from ever becoming helpless. The answer was optimism. Using his knowledge about condition people to be helpless in the lab, he shifted his focus to conditioning people to be optimists. The result of these experiments led to defining the processes of learning optimism.

The recsession is over and now it's time to talk about the things that we have learned from it. Money wise that is. With so much that when on during this time. Have we become wiser about our money or are we still foolish about it? We will discuss it all this sunday right here on the Cheap Cheetah Money Show
We have remained silent concerning the Atlanta Public School scandal so that "justice" could take its course. Now, that the "truth" has been revealed and several Atlanta public schools administrators and teachers were adjudged guilty by a jury of their peers and sentenced for racketeering convictions related to a massive standardized test cheating scandal, Attorney Sherri Jefferson will share her thoughts on the "Real Lesson to be Learned."
This episode will discuss how cheating adversely affects the lives of our children, the moral and legal issues of the jury decisions, the tactics that still exist at and through the Atlanta Public School that promotes the environment that is conducive to the conduct exhibited by their adminsitrators and teachers.
Attorney Jefferson will discuss how the jury verdict will not change the APS culture.
Four games of the Western Conference Finals are in the books, and the Warriors lead the Rockets by a 3-1 margin. That overall mark may not seem surprising, but the route the series has taken to get there has been a bit bizarre.
For two games, the teams appeared almost evenly matched, with Stephen Curry and James Harden — the league’s top two finishers in MVP voting — trading blow for blow in two games that went down to the wire in Oakland.
Then in Game 3, the Warriors absolutely blew the doors off of Houston, grabbing a commanding 3-0 series lead by virtue of a 35-point beatdown in Toyota Center.
But the Game 4 that many predicted would be Golden State’s title coronation for the Western Conference? Instead, the Rockets climbed off the mat in stunning fashion, racing out to a record-setting 45-point first quarter and cruising to a 128-115 victory to extend the series. The Rockets, now 4-0 against elimination in these playoffs, became just the second team in NBA history to win four straight elimination games by double digits in the same postseason.
Ben DuBose of Sheridan Hoops is joined by Josh Reese of CBS Radio in Houston to break it all down.
Just how historically great have Curry and Harden been?
How scary was Curry's Game 4 injury scare?[/
Was not suspending Dwight Howard for his Game 4 elbow the right call?
Did Klay Thompson find himself during Curry’s brief Game 4 absence?
Who is the X-factor for the Rockets after Harden and Howard?
Does Steve Kerr need to make any significant adjustment for the Warriors?
Who wins Game 5?
