Self-efficacy is an essential topic throughout life. Even babies like to control their environment, for example by moving a mobile by a wire attached to their foot. During school years and later on self-efficacy is very important. The contrary is helplessness, the opposite, which can lead to hopelessness and depression. While in certain situations we are able to influence our environment (or processes) directly, such as learning harder in order to get better math marks, this is not always possible. For example a girl losing sight as a result of an illness cannot directly influence this process, but she can learn Braille to gain some control over her situation.
It is often important to determine whether a situation itself can be influenced or whether it is necessary to learn how to deal with the situation and the circumstances.
In psychotherapy or consulting, hypnotic methods are very useful to take an adequate influence on one’s own life.
