In 1996 to 2004, there was a review done by the FBI into 13 hair analysts (U.S. Department). The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has done three reports on this review (U.S. Department). The latest of these reports came out in 2014 (U.S. Department). In this report, the OIG

In the movie “What About Bob” from the year of 1991, the main character, Bob possibly had borderline personal disorder and OCD. I did not chose this movie, I watched it in my high school psychology class. It was the first movie that I watched specifically because of a mental illness. In the movie, the mental illness wasn’t specifically specified by the psychologist. Bob knew something was wrong with him by showing that he always needed his psychologist.
Beating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder I. You may have heard the phrase “My OCD is kicking in” when something is disorganized and a person cannot deal with it and has to fix the issue then and there to make it organized but, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is quite more difficult than that. A. According to the Merriam Webster’s dictionary Obsessive is defined as “a state in which someone thinks about someone or something constantly or frequently especially in a way that is not normal.”, and Compulsive is defined as “caused by a desire that is too strong to resist: impossible to stop or control.” The two together do not come out with a good aftermath.
There are many mental illnesses that would lead to insane behaviors ranging from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder to Schizophrenia. While it is difficult for the average person diagnose mental disorders from such a short story, the narrator likely has Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. The care he takes in every aspect of his nightly stalking show the telltale characteristic of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: “And every night, about midnight, I turned the latch of his door and opened it- oh so gently!”
Tris’ mother is cutting her hair, and it is explained how rare it is for Abnegation to be able to do such a simple thing, like look in the mirror. On page 1, “Our faction allows me to stand in front of (the mirror) on the second day of every third month.” Focusing on the section of this quote saying, “my faction allows me,” it is clear that the faction leaders, and rules made by their ancestors, are very strict and possibly over-the-top in control. In our world, we have the right to do simple things without asking and without schedule. We can get our haircut whenever we like, and we can look in the mirror for as long as we want.
While doing her client's hair, she is so involved in her obsessiveness that she is envisioning him there. She envisioned herself giving him a haircut. She is visualizing him staring back at her in the mirror with them locking eyes (171). “I wait until your truck has pulled away to sweep up the short brown hairs. I can't throw them away, so I tilt the contents of the dustpan into one of the nice creamy envelopes” (171).
9.8 Cognitive restructuring Extreme or negative thinking has been found to contribute to increase anxiety as unhelpful thinking styles undermine an individual’s perceived ability to cope with a situation. Unhelpful thinking style may include extreme or catastrophic thinking about the dental encounter/procedure (e.g. I might ‘choke’ ) or mind reading and jumping to conclusions(e.g. ‘the dentist won’t understand my phobia and will think I am silly’). Cognitive restructuring refers to a child being taught to recognize the negative thoughts which precipitate their anxiety and replace these with more helpful cognitions.
is an illness in which schizophrenic and manic symptoms are both prominent in the same occurrence of the disease. The irregularity of mood typically takes the form of euphoria, accompanied by grandiose ideas and joined by increased self-esteem, but sometimes irritability or excitement are more apparent and joined by aggressive or forceful behavior and persecutory thoughts. In both cases, there is impaired concentration, overactivity, increased energy and a loss of normal social self-consciousness. Delusions of reference, persecution or grandeur, may be existing (Perry, Alexander, Liskow, & DeVane,
Co-occurring disorders are common with most client cases that are presenting with a substance use disorder. Rosa is presenting with a history of several suicide attempts, alcohol use disorder, Post traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). The client’s most severe symptoms are anger, fear, and shame. It is these symptoms that are complicating her life, causing distress, and self harming behaviors. Additionally, her treatment history is limited since she does not finish her therapy sessions.
Frightened by a mentally ill man in the nearby “yellow house,” the narrator turns this neighbor into a character, the Hairy Man, a figure that is “wooly-headed and bearded.” The narrator finds peace in her Dad’s assertion that the Hairy Man only comes at dark. The narrator’s unconditional trust and belief in her father’s words also displays her innocence. As a fifth-grader, she still takes what her cherished parents say to heart. She often interjects with the repeated words “my mother said’ or “my father said.”
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most effective type of psychotherapy for this disorder,where the patient is exposed many times to a situation that triggers the obsessive thoughts, and learns gradually to tolerate the anxiety and resist the urge to perform the compulsion. Medication and CBT together are considered to be better than either treatment alone at reducing symptoms. The patient is strongly encouraged to refrain from his or her habits, with support provided by the therapist, and possibly by others whom the patient calls for assistance. For example, a compulsive hand washer may be encouraged to touch an object believed to be contaminated, and then urged to avoid washing for several hours until the anxiety provoked has greatly decreased. This process leads to the start of another process,which is the process of “Habituation”.
It does not to be a problem behavior, but could also be a strength to be encouraged. The target problem is measured by the number of times problems occurs, problems length of time, length of time between incidents, and intensity of problem. The treatment
Initially, she obsessed about safety and became extremely doubtful when something needed to be locked. It seems that she was more concerned about someone else’s safety (e.g. her roommate) than her own. She also showed excessive anxiety/obsession when it came to paying the bills, once again where she would check the numbers over and over again. Unfortunately, Sarah’s obsessions and compulsions became much worse after graduating college when a group of
Psychoanalysis of the Wizard of Oz Of the many literary theories that have come about over the years, one of the most interesting is the idea of psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis was first introduced in the 1880s by Sigmund Freud, he claimed that unconscious desires were the reasoning behind most behavioral problems. Furthermore, Freud speculated that one’s subconscious desires were influenced by what happened in one’s childhood ("Purdue OWL: Literary Theory and Schools of Criticism", 2018). Freud also said that children go through various stages of development where they focus on one body part or another, such as the oral or anal stage, and that children may fixate on their parent of the opposite sex, known as the Oedipus Complex ("Purdue OWL: Literary Theory and Schools of Criticism", 2018). After reading about psychoanalysis it is easy to apply the theory to one of the most beloved movies of all time, The Wizard of Oz.
