Psychological Abuse and Learned Helplessness: A Systematic Literature Review
The aim of this work was to review the existing research on the relation between psychological abuse and learned helplessness. A total of 9 articles met the search criteria. Results revealed themes regarding the prevalence and consequences of psychological abuse and learned helplessness. Findings suggested that psychological abuse and learned helplessness are frequently reported among racial/ethnic minorities, survivors of intimate partner violence, victims of childhood neglect, and victims of workplace abuse. Within each of the major themes, instances of prolonged psychological abuse were examined. Further research is needed to determine what methods of treatment, interventions, and services would best alleviate the experience of learned helplessness after prolonged psychological abuse. Further research would also need to indicate the appropriate education for clinicians and professionals seeking to work with such populations. Implications for future research are discussed.
