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.
Learned helplessness occurs when an animal is repeatedly subjected to an aversive stimulus that it cannot escape. Eventually, the animal will stop trying to avoid the stimulus and behave as if it is utterly helpless to change the situation. Even when opportunities to escape are presented, this learned helplessness will prevent any action. The impact of learned helplessness has been demonstrated in a number of different animal species, but its effects can also be seen in people. Consider one often-used example: A child who performs poorly on math tests and assignments will quickly begin to feel that nothing he does will have any effect on his math performance. When later faced with any type of math-related task, he may experience a sense of helplessness.

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,
Are you praying about a ministry location change? Perhaps you're in that process of transitioning now. It's not too late to apply some of these lessons learned from Matt and David to help ensure you are leaving and arriving well. If you've got a story or question to share, call in at 347-850-1626. Let's face it, it's hard to pick up and move. Let's discuss the challenges and necessary actions to help ensure a smooth transition for all involved.
I thought this year's conference was one of the best I've attended in a long time! In this episode, I'll give you the highlights of the sessions I attended at the American Music Therapy Association Conference in Kansas City, including what I learned and how I plan to incorporate that information into my work.
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!
Let's talk about Learned Behaviors. These are behaviors that you learned that were meant to serve as a temporary safety net but you lost sight of that. So now we need to talk about how easily you can deflect yourself from finding out the learned behaviors that are now keeping you from standing in your responsibilities and the accountabilities of making the changes to your thoughts and feelings and learning how to use your emotions as the very tool that will change your life.
When you repeat a learned behaviour often enough it becomes your normal response and you forget that you just needed time with the particular example at a particular moment in time.
You needed time because you were already learning behaviors that kept you safe from those adults that lost control with you because of their own learned behaviours.
It's time to stop the cycle and recognize that the learned behavior is no longer serving you. In fact, it's limiting your choices today and keeping you from the truth.
