Perceived Control, Motivation, & Coping - Individual Differences and Development (Hardback)Ellen A. Skinner (author)
- We can order this
To answer these questions, this book draws on theories and research covering key control constructs, including self-efficacy, learned helplessness, locus of control and attribution theory. Skinner also considers such issues as: the origins of control in social interaction; environmental features that promote or undermine control; developmental change in the mechanisms by which experiences of control have effects on action; and the implications for intervening in competence systems - including interventions with people who are in uncontrollable circumstances.
