Treating Learned Helplessness: Podcast 016

00:00 / 6:13

This podcast is the narrated version of my article How to Help Your Client Beat ‘Learned Helplessness’.

Feeling helpless when you’re not is often a central psychological aspect of depression. Here are some ways you can go about helping your client be more confident in the amount of control they can exert over their situation.

In this episode I talk about:

  • How to use metaphor to alleviate learned helplessness
  • Why you should draw out the differences
  • How to encourage active problem solving in your client
