Social anxiety in children is associated with poor previous interactions with their peers. Many times there are children who will remain solitary despite availability of their peers as playmates (Gazelle &Ladd, 2003). This takes place in schools, neighborhoods, or childcare programs. Solitary behavior being the word for this phenomenon may be explained by external sources, which in this case would be peer exclusion or being left out of peer activities. In this sense solitary children exist because they do not actively choose to engage with peers or their peers do not actively engage with them communicatively.

The main character, Charlie, has suffered from schizophrenia since the story began, hurting his self-confidence when beginning high school. The first time his condition is emphasized in recorded time is after he takes acid and has a trip. Once he is in the hospital and is discussing what he went through on this “trip” he says he has visions, immediately forcing his mother to become stressed and concerned for his health and well being. Once again, Charlie’s serious case came up after his friends left for college. He resorted to having visions of his aunt’s death, causing him to feel the need to kill himself.

Without the right amalgam of medication, therapy, and care from friends and family, a schizophrenic’s condition would worsen to, possibly, the end of their life (Pies 1). Naomi Haskell aided her 19-year old son and his struggle with schizophrenia by driving him everywhere, buying him his own apartment, and helping to make sure he was fine. She did this in hopes of giving him the normal life he deserved (McCrummen). “Naomi starts to cry. If he is feeling better, she knows it might be the start of a manic phase.
I believe that it would be most appropriate to diagnose Miss Diagnosis with Borderline Personality Disorder, Moderate Bulimia.

Her symptoms presented when Client A’s father started a new job and when she transferred into a new school (precipitant). Client A admits to feeling anxious, angry and frustrated when she is being ignored and misunderstood. She firmly believes everyone in her life should listen, believe and try to understand her.

Schorr’s case demonstrates that some courts do not agree on how to apply the ADA and may extend the ADA to involuntary commitment orders. Schorr had a bipolar disorder. His family and roommate requested Schorr be involuntarily committed. An order was issued, police officers apprehended Schorr, and took him to a hospital. Schorr escaped from the hospital and returned home. The same officers went to his house where a violent confrontation began and the officers shot and killed Schorr.
After constant ridicule from his half-sister, he believed he was not as intelligent as the rest of his family. Forced to see many psychiatrists, Norstadt had a doubt deep inside him as to whether or not he was actually sane. With no idea about the drunk and suicidal past of his father, Norstadt created his own fantasy about his father’s death to cope with it. His family kept the truth from him while all along thinking he was simply troubled. After spending so much time around this delusion, Norstadt became unsure of himself.
They develop the need to pursue these social encounters as often and as stronger as possible (Leslie H. Brown, 2007). This theory shows that when that need to belong is fulfilled, it results in enhanced functioning and a sense of belonging. There is a direct relationship of social interactions with an individual’s daily functioning. There are two extreme ends; causing a negative impact if their social needs are not met, and vice versa.
As children are exposed to influences outside the home, they begin to develop social skills such as self-control, sharing, and relationship building. Imagine if these skills were never learned. Dining out would be an entirely different experience. Adults would be pitching fits and fighting over the menu! Sadly, there are known cases of human isolation that prove the importance social
