Although Sonny found something he loved, other than drugs, he did not seem to care. Sonny voiced his frustration, “But what I don’t seem to be able to make you understand is that it’s the only thing I want to do.” Instead of being compassionate and understanding the older brother’s heartless response was, “It’s time you started thinking about your future.” Sonny’s brother did not care about Sonny’s happiness; all he wanted was for Sonny to do what he wanted him to do so he could fulfill his promise to his mother. These controlling tendencies tied directly into his selfish traits.

“No change of circumstances can repair a defect of character.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson. This quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson truly shows how no matter how hard you want to “fit in” or change something about yourself or others, you shouldn’t force yourself to change who your true character is.

TP doesn’t seem to be able to hold down a relationship, be it with his ex-wife, kids, new partner or brothers, TP seems to be struggling. As TP was in an environment without a motherly figure growing up this could contribute to why TP has relationship troubles later on in life. The environment that his father created by being distance and strict, could explain why TP is also distant from his children, as well as others. TP also has begun to drink heavily which could relate to the environment his father created in the family home with his heavy drinking. The Behavioural Perspective believes that all behaviour is learn through environment through classical and operant conditioning.
“And I want to keep it that way, Doc.” ( par. 3 pg 8) Ben keeping this secret from his family and friends makes him a liar who is trying to protect his family and friends from emotional pain. “If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.” According to psychiatrist Paul Ekman we lie to escape punishment, to get out of uncomfortable situations, to boost our egos, to receive a reward, to protect others, and control the flow of information.(Par 3) Ben not only hiding the secret from his family and friends, he is also hiding the secret from himself.
If, however, the individual is unable to properly cope with the stresses, they should seek education on ways to prevent the acute stress from progressing to something worse. Treating acute stress can be as simple as talking to someone about it or finding a hobby to distract yourself from it (Salvis, 2015). Someone with compassion fatigue should speak with their doctor and hopefully receive psychiatric counseling to help recover and to prevent a relapse of symptoms (Mathieu, 2007).

There is a different level of urgency that arises in a therapist when a client comes in experiencing a crisis than those that are not experiencing a crisis. A client with a current crisis is looking for relief and validation without judgements.
Mindfulness practice has potential to be of benefit to individuals with PTSD, either as a tertiary or a stand-alone treatment” (Vujanovic). In teaching our veterans to notice the things that trigger their anxieties, they can be self-aware of when they feel an attack come on and redirect their behaviors.

In a sense, the therapist is guiding the patient to see for himself that there is a problem — all based on discovering what motivates the individual to live life as he or she is currently. Enlightenment can only occur if an individual wants to learn (John Dewey), and MET is centered around this insight. Once initial resistance has been countered — by reflecting back the patient’s own statements about desiring better outcomes — learning can really take off. An introduction of behavioral techniques can be nicely mixed in to support the patient’s ability to better fend for himself when tempted by chemical or old, bad habitual
I also notice that I tend to repeat after the patient answer to my question. Although doing so might help me keep the fact straight as well as letting the patient know that I was actively listening, I felt that it’s a little overkill as this might cause me to lose time for the interview. Thus, this could be the reason that I couldn’t finish my interview. As I summarized the information I got from the patient, I realized that I missed out some of the information and went a little fast toward the end after the announcement of two minutes left for the interview.
