TRIVIA QUESTION OF THE WEEK
This week's trivia question:
Unfortunately, many students with special needs have experienced repeated challenges in school and believe they have no control over their situation. They then give up trying to make changes and accept their fate in school. This concept in psychology was discovered by Martin Seligman and Steven F. Maier, finding that people may feel that they have little to no control over their life situation. Because of the lack of control, they may become unmotivated or try to take action, since they believe nothing they do will make a difference. For example, feeling anxious in social situations in school can cause students to feel that there is nothing they can do to overcome their symptoms. Because symptoms feel out of control, these students may stop trying to engage themselves in school social situations, thus making their anxiety even more pronounced. What is the name of this psychological concept?
