dc.description.abstract The Beirut port explosion that took place on August 4th 2020 was one of the biggest explosions in history. It was a very traumatic event for the people who experienced it and lived through it. The proposed study is designed to discuss the correlation between learned helplessness and hopelessness and the Beirut port explosion (trauma). The study includes 134 participants who are above the age of 18 and were in Lebanon at the time of the explosion. Data was collected using a survey that was sent out and filled by a randomly selected sample. The survey used the learned helplessness scale, and the hopelessness scale. Addiotnally, Spearmen Correlation was used to analyze the data. The expected outcome is a positive correlation between trauma – the port explosion in this case – and learned helplessness and hopelessness. The results will help us become more aware of the implications of trauma and its effects on the Lebanese populous. en_US
