The loss of his father was the major life event that has impacted negatively his life. H.G never received treatment for his ADHD and possible learning disability. As a result of his life stressors he was not able to continue a healthy development. One can say that Maslow’s pyramid is from its very base lacking all the foundations in the case of H.G. “His physiological needs were met at a very basic level; the same could be said about his sense of safety and belonging as well as his esteem needs.” (Mandich, 2015, p. 42).
