Abstract

Literature in the areas of learned helplessness, computer anxiety, and attribution retraining are reviewed to determine if there are connections between learned helplessness and computer anxiety. The literature revealed learned helplessness and computer anxiety are maladaptive behaviors which use cognitive abilities to determine that successful task completion is not possible which induces a helpless or anxious state, and avoidance of the task in future events. Attribution retraining literature revealed successes in both cognitive and behavior modifications, which suggests attribution retraining as a viable option to reorient the learned helpless and computer anxious individual’s attributions for failure from ability to effort.
