The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates is a New York Times Bestseller by none other than, Wes Moore. This novel features an intriguing tale of two boys who grew up under the same circumstances, under the same names, and with the same chances; and yet one manages to become a Rhodes Scholar, decorated combat veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader while the other grew up heisting and selling drugs until he received a life sentence for felony murder after shooting a police officer. The more successful Wes Moore, Wes Moore, began to visit the less successful Wes Moore, the other Wes Moore, during his prison sentence in order to write the book. Furthermore, the book turned out to be great. It was much better than I had anticipated before reading it.
Neuropsychology has found correlations between the human mind and internal thought processes and behaviour, (Van Der Kolk, 2014). There is an established link between co-rumination and depression, (Dam, Roelofs and Muris, 2014). A study of Irish adolescents found that sixteen year old females has the lowest levels of contentment and optimism (Dooley and Fitzgerald, 2012). These adolescents are potential clients. A study of mental illness in North Dublin found twenty-seven per cent had anxiety disorders, (Cannon, Coughlan, Clarke, Harley, Kelleher, Connor, Fitzpatrick and Lynch, 2015).
It is impossible for them to trust anyone that easily because of the past experiences that they had. The destruction of trust between the children and their abuser is because of the incest that happened in the family. The family is the most important source and support to the child for their confidence and security. But because of the incest, the bond and trusts between parents and children are broken and the child cannot trust their own family. When the most important source; family betrayed them and cannot be trusted anymore, the child often feels that it is not possible to trust anyone in this world.
After speaking with, Zack, and his family I agree with the diagnoses of a conduct disorder. Zack presents some of the symptoms and behaviors that are consistent with the DSM-5 diagnosis of a conduct disorder. After speaking with Zack and his family and hearing about his past behaviors, the pattern of actions described was a clear display of a conduct disorder. While arguing with Wade, Zack assaulted him by kicking him in the groin. During that same argument, Zack also broke the dining room table, then ran away to a friend's house for a week before hitchhiking to his grandparents' house.
Cognitive Behavioral Theory (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that helps different types of behavioral problems such depression, eating disorders, and severe mental illness. The Cognitive Behavioral Theory was pioneered by Aron Beck. Although he spent most of his career studying psychoanalysis, in the 1960s his research focused on distorted thoughts that led to problematic behaviors (“Beck”, 2017). He developed the Cognitive Behavioral Theory trying to help his depressed clients while working as a psychiatrist at the University of Pennsylvania. The Cognitive Behavioral Theory (CBT) approach consists on monitoring negative automatic thoughts (cognitive), recognizing the connection between cognition and behavior, examine the evidence
Harry price is one of many people who lived to disprove ghosts and to prove paranormals wrong. He was born in 1881, and years later started unveiling the fakes in the world of mediums and paranormals. As word spread about him and over time, he became widely famous, and he then founded the Laboratory for Psychical Research. Only two of his cases he could no prove to be hoaxes (Gudgeon 21-24). In 1882, the Society for Psychical Research was founded for many scientists and other influential people to dive into the science behind paranormals.
I feel like this is because most of the movies or books I have seen about mental illness have not been focused on BPD. This disorder has not been learned in class yet, but after reading about BPD in the DSM-5, I believe that the portrayal of the disorder is accurate. Although, I feel like this film is more about mental illness in general and the experiences that come with it rather than just focusing on Susanna’s specific illness. The film had strengths and weaknesses on how it portrayed the different experiences of those with mental illness. Some strengths the movie had on mental illness portrayal include society’s view on mental illness, a good depiction of the thoughts, and the wide spectrum of mental health.
The article is called “The Influence of Psychopathic Personality Traits, Low Self-Control, and Non shared Environmental Factors on Criminal Involvement” It looks to see if their are any correlations between criminal involvement and the influence of PPT, self control, and non shared environment factors. They used monozygous otherwise known as identical twins so that genes would stay constant while environment would differ. They wanted to test out environmental and personality variables instead of genetic variables. It’s a longitudinal study that was conducted with monozygous twins over the course of four waves. The first wave being surveyed in 1994 while the participants were 10-18 years old.
However, it is often closely linked to Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD) to the point that some practitioners use the two terms synonymously (Venosa). People with ASPD do not live by the same social guidelines as their friends and colleagues. Furthermore, people with the disorder tend to be callous, have a lack of empathy, and love manipulation. People with ASPD often give no regard to how their actions may affect other individuals; often, they only give regard to their own desires. People with ASPD are less extreme than psychopaths (Cohen).
First, I would assess for a history of mental illness, namely bipolar disorder, in Ellen’s family history. According to Beidel, Frueh, & Hersen (2014), “The risk of BD among children of bipolar parents is 4 times greater than the risk among children of healthy parents” (p. 232). Ellen reported that her parents were emotionally abusive toward her. I would want to assess for the impact this has had on Ellen’s life, especially on her depression symptoms. It is also important that I assess for any negative life events Ellen experienced.
Even after his diagnosis, however, the court found him legally sane at his trial. Although these are two famous cases for sociopaths, this does not mean sociopaths are violent. “The view that all sociopaths are violent, and all people who are violent are sociopaths” is actually inaccurate. (Landfield, 2014) The main symptoms that make these two cases bonifide psychopaths are the lack of empathy and remorse. It is possible for an individual to be violent and malicious without being diagnosed with a personality disorder, and also a person can be diagnosed with a personality disorder and be harmless and relatively ordinary while lacking complete empathy and
