Learned Helplessness

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.

The good news is that since LH is a learned behavior, it can also be unlearned. Here are seven “cures” or suggestions to help alleviate Learned Helplessness.

  1. Provide good role modeling. Always be in charge and confident. Handle problems with professionalism and a “can do” attitude.
  2. Increase physical activity. Avoid sitting in front of the TV. Keep your mind active and not focused on the toxic event.
  3. Have the student begin a journal and share feelings and activities of the day.
  4. Give the student more responsibility. Provide them with a leadership role to help them increase perceived control in their life.
  5. Get a book or attend a seminar on goal setting and learn this life altering skill. Start small and work your way up.
  6. Use affirmations and tell the student what they are capable of doing instead of putting them down.
  7. Study relaxation techniques and teach the student how to handle the stress filling their lives.

Learned Helplessness is serious. It can lead to depression, alcohol and drug use, and destructive behavior including suicide. Learn to recognize the symptoms and activate the cures by getting family, school and community involved. Learned Helplessness will go away in time unless it is continually reinforced at home and in school, but can become a living nightmare through it’s duration. Increase activity, set goals, take responsibility, build confidence and be a good role model in order to develop strong, intelligent, confident students.
