Ender does make a few really close friends because of the seclusion since he has a lot of free time, but very few friends to share his feelings and affection with. He also learns how to rely on no one for aid through his harsh loneliness which was actually the primary goal of Graff. In fact, “Graff [isolates] Ender to make him struggle” (Card 205) and prove he is better than everyone else, emotionally and physically. The struggles that Ender face allow him to win respect and love from his peers as he is always getting better and stronger from these difficulties. It is also noted that the hurdles turned him into a better soldier, too.

The Breakfast club uses timing of when characters start talking to add realism and authentication to the dialogue of the characters. This can be seen in the motivation for the characters to speak when they do, especially in the cases where people jump into conversations, are pushed to talking, and refuse to participate. Brian Johnson, characterized as the nerd of the group, has been stressed to his limits by his parent’s. He is a character that is the most book smart in the room but and this can be shown in how his dialogue is spoken. Throughout the movie he comments in on facts or details during scenes without being asked.

Benjamin just has very simple conversations with parents and other adults, but when he is talking to his parents, they never listen to what he actually has to say. For instance, there’s a scene where Ben gets his birthday snorkel gear from his parents. The whole time he’s behind a door subtle telling his father softly and quietly, “can we discuss this, I doing think I want to do this”. This demonstrates how he is ignored and is not able to communicate even to his own parents. The following scene shows Benjamin alone at the bottom of the pool, this follows his isolation because of lack of communication.

Christopher tries so hard to control his life because he likes to have a routine. Routines help him know the order of what he’s doing. He has many various ways to know how the day is going to be. Everyday when he heads to school, he looks outside the window and counts the number of cars and what the color of the car is. “Mr. Jeavons the psychologist at the school, once asked me why 4 red cars in a row made it a Good Day, and 3 red cars in a row made it a Quite Good Day, and 5 red cars in a row made it a Super Good Day, and why 4 yellow cars in a row made it a Black Day” (Haddon 24).
Holden does not like that everyone is cheering Ernie for playing the piano but he is not that good in Holden 's opinion. “Instead of trying either to redeem Holden as a saint or to condemn him as a pessimist, Edwards argues that Holden is an ironic character who critiques his phony culture but ends up participating in the same phony culture that he condemns.” (Bennett 130). In the quote the reader can tell that Holden is doing things he does not like to be around people. The theme of loneliness is such an important part if what Holden is

While this novel does have profanity and sexual references, it still deserves to be taught in high school because Holden shows how having a negative attitude towards life does not get a person far. In the beginning of the novel Holden tells the reader that "[Pencey] kick[s] [him] out [of their school]" (6) because he "was [failing] four subjects and not applying [himself]" (6). However, he does not just notify the reader, he notifies them in a way of forgetting to mention that he is no longer going to be attending Pencey. Holden passes this off as some minor detail when in reality it is not just a minor detail. Later on, Holden reveals to the reader that this is not the first school where he has gotten expelled.
Antwone suffers from displacement and repression, and he also deny a lot about his pass experiences. With that being said, my treatment recommendation for Antwone is the psychoanalytic theory. Antwone denies and bottles up all the anger that he has from his pass without realizing that it is causing him more harm. He refused to talk about these issues because he thought that he does not have an issues. With all the anger bottled up, he tends to displace them by lashing out on his co-workers.
I also observed the interrogation videotape, mainly focusing in on the confession, and how he described the killing of Wayne and Sharmon Stocks. Throughout, the video I witness liver legs fully extended and periodically he would cross his feet. He had his right arm up to his face and he would constantly scratch his forehead as he continues to give detail of what happened to the detectives. He was seated between the two detectives, I noticed how his voice never really changes throughout the interview, and it seemed as if he didn’t care and wanted the interview to end. Drizin quote “people who are mentally impaired, prone to suggestion or easily persuaded are prime candidates for making false confessions under the Reid Technique”.
