As they were talking the audience learns more and more about The Misfit and his past life. Specifically, as you mentioned when the grandmother leans into to touch him he does not want any part of this and immediately
She tells the King and Polonius “There’s something in his soul O’er which his melancholy sits on brood.” (III.1.178-179) She knows he is just grieving over the loss his father and his relationship with Ophelia, but she can tell there is something else there. There is something stewing not just in his mind, but in his soul and it is eating him up. The on brood portion is comparing to an egg preparing to hatch. Eggs will sometimes move or turn just prior to hatching and Hamlet’s sudden display of fake madness is hinting at the real insanity that will soon ensue. This is where Ophelia is first introduced to the idea of feigned madness.
The book Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes follows provides many lessons and themes for the reader. The main character Charlie is either the cause of the lessons or provides insight on the lessons themselves. Charlie 's Conflict with his past experiences with his mother 's treatment of his mental illness teaches the reader that even if someone is different mentally they are still human through Charlie constantly being abused and experimented on, and his recorded thoughts of just wanting a friend to see him as an actual person. Through Charlie’s journal the reader gets an in depth look at what he truly feels. This is clearly shown whenever he makes a note of him being treated as something inhuman, even after he becomes intelligent.

Judgements are often made by people without considering past or current situations of others. By putting yourself in one’s shoes and experiencing their situation yourself, an opinion will change. Addiction is a horrible disease that took over Nic Sheff’s life, much to the dismay of his father. Through personal experience of years of anguish, depression, anger, and disappointment, the judgements of Sheff altered. The discomfort of thought and experience ultimately allowed Sheff to construct an enlightened
In the fourth line, there is a metaphor when he described his state with the word “woeful” to convey his feeling that he is not happy. Then he said “Straight in her heart did mercy come,” hence, there is alliteration in this line, he said when his lover saw him in this state without hope and he is unhappy, she saw how much pain she caused him she felt mercy for him right away and change the word “I hate” to “I hate not you” this simile showed us how much happy he became.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is evident through the characters of Bride, Sheila and Redgum as a physical manifestation of the trials and tribulations that they experienced within war. Through the use of the David Jones Food Hall and the “Channel Seven Chopper:” we can see that all of the individuals are haunted by their past with Bridie expressing “ … but my heart began to pound with terror. Just hearing the language was enough to do it.” However, Bridie is about to find closure with this situation because she is able to talk about what happened and is able to receive sympathy from Sheila; thus tightening their strained relationship, and “And why the Channel Seven chopper chills me to my
In my professional opinion, I believe that Paul ██████ was afflicted with clinical depression, narcissistic personality disorder, and abused defense mechanisms to the point of self-harm, which led to his suicide. The patient had a loss of pleasure in everyday activities, was underweight, and was withdrawn from family and friends. This highly suggests he had been suffering from severe clinical depression that was left untreated (Mayo Staff Clinic). Depression is a medical illness that alters one 's behavioural, physical, and emotional self negatively, affecting all ages (Smith & Segal). The patient also exhibited signs of narcissistic personality disorder; large self-expenses, inflated sense of self worth, and a need to be around the wealthy,
When observing the first video, the initial reaction that I noticed, was the client being extremely nervous and anxious about sharing her feelings. The patient shared that she was angry, frustrated and as a result she was having chest pains. During the session, the patient keep using the word “it” to describe her emotions and the therapist suggested she use “I” when referring to her emotions and concerns. One of the interesting things about this session was the ability to incorporate the “Here and now” and the “empty chair technique” in this case the client was focusing on the importance of her agreement with her ex-husband in regards to the children. In this case having the client reverse roles allowed the client to realize that although her ex-husband was not spending enough time with the children, his love and care for them was still the same.
There is one male acute patient whom I have become friends with during my visits at Moccasin Bend. In the beginning of my fieldwork, I was very uncomfortable talking to him as he has severe emotional regulation problems. He has flight of thought as he can begin speaking on one subject and quickly change the topic without me realizing it. Furthermore, he can go from laughing to crying in under thirty seconds depending on the topic. When I first started talking to him, I did not understand what I should do because at one moment we were laughing, and then he starts crying.
