George may do things to Lennie which Lennie finds "mean", like alaways taking away dead mice from him, but unlike Lennie, the reader can understand why he does this. If the mouse's body was infected, then it would do damage to Lennie as the mouse "ain't fresh". This clearly shows that George cares about Lennie. George also cares about Lennie physically and can't stand to see him hurt, as he tell Lennie to "get him [Curley]" when Curley is attacking him, and also immediatly defends Lennie when Curley verbally attacks him - "Lennie didn't do nothing to him". All of this shows that George is a caring person who is loyal to Lennie and can't stand to see him bullied or hurt.
Discuss two or more psychological explanations of phobic disorders (8 marks + 16 marks) One psychological explanation for phobic disorders can be explained by the behavioural approach. This approach proposes that phobias are acquired through conditioning. The case study of Little Albert showed he developed a fear of white furry objects through classical conditioning as he had experienced a furry rat, the neutral stimulus, being associated with a loud noise, the unconditioned stimulus (UCS). The UCS produced an unconditioned response of fear and the furry object, now a conditioned stimulus, acquired the same properties so that when Albert saw it he cried because he was scared. Sue et al.
Contact is normally achieved by imagining scenarios (covert desensitisation), but sometimes involves actual contact (in vivo desensitisation). Snake phobics may begin SD treatment by looking at a picture of snakes in a sealed tank, and progressively work through to actually holding one. There has been a lot of research into behavioural therapies. Jones (1924) used SD to eradicate ‘Little Peters’s’ phobia of white fluffy animals and objects such as rabbits and cotton wool. The rabbit was presented to the patient at closer distances each time his anxiety levels subsided to permit movement to the next stage, and Peter was rewarded with food to develop a positive association towards the rabbit.
& C., 1996), guided induction of various states of consciousness (Halsband, 2011) or natural psycho physiological reaction caused by the specific psychological interactions between the hypnotiser and person being hypnotised (Gapik, 1984). However we define the hypnosis currently it is acknowledged that hypnotic state was known to the human beings already in ancient
Lennie faced a lot of dilemmas in “Of Mice and Men” and Cosmo has faced some dilemmas in his show. Lennie was faced with the choice of doing right or wrong, the tricky thing is he doesn’t know the difference between right and wrong. He just remembers (sometimes) what George tells him. Lennie doesn’t know what is right and what is wrong so when a woman yells because he is pulling her hair too hard he covers her mouth and suffocated her. The reason he did this was because George told him not to mess with her and if he does he could get them in a lot of trouble and possibly ruin their dream of having a farm together.
The shadowed faces, the whistling and pattering, and the dangerous landscape all terrorize Mole because he ventures into the Wild Wood by himself. All the terrifying sights and sounds cause his imagination to run wild, making the experience even worse. On its larger symbolic level, then, the terror relates to the fear a small child feels when s/he ventures into a realm that s/he is not ready for. Much as Rat warns Mole to stay away from the Wild Wood, parents often warn their children about dangers that should be proactively avoided. Of course, like Mole does, children
Tired of constantly reminding Lennie of things he should remember, George gets quickly angry when Lennie forgets to get the firewood, for example, and instead goes after the dead mouse. On the other hand, George's anger is quickly under control, and he blames himself for scolding Lennie. In fact, Steinbeck makes clear that, despite his complaining and frustration, George looks out for Lennie and genuinely cares for him. Without companionship we have nothing, relationships with other people can define who a person is. Whether that relationship is with a dog, as in Candy’s case or with a wife like Curly.
Huck and Tom complicate Tom’s escape plan at Jim’s own expense. They put snakes and rats in his cabin, for example. This dehumanizes Jim. His vast complexity on this issue further explains his character. He wants to be free and longs for exemption from slavery, but he feels stuck in the stereotypes of society and what the culture views slaves to be.
(????). This approach suggests that behavior is determined by an individual’s response to a stimulus. For example, J B Watson, a popular behaviorist, was able to change an infant’s emotional response to rats by associating a rat with a loud disturbing noise. Before the application of the noise the infant would look at the rat rather quizzically. After the application of the noise the infant became hysterical at the sight of any furry object, thus creating a habit of fear for fury objects (???).
