Since he was isolated from his friends he didn’t have the people to tell him about his attitude or bring his bad habit to his conscious mind. Hank is fixated orally because of the oral activity he does. His mother said that even as a child, Hank was a loud-mouthed baby, especially when he was crying, so to stop the crying his mother would immediately feed him his bottle, which shows that Hank was overfed during his early years which caused him to be orally fixated and made eating instant gratification. In the later years of Hank, he would eat and smoke when under stress which are both oral activities, showing that he is comforted by those activities. 2.
After he had lunch, he was in class just sleeping until the class ends. After school, he worked at gas station getting minimum wages. At night, he would just wonder around the streets stealing money and foods from small supermarkets. One day in school, everybody was saying that he tried to suicide but failed, and went to the hospital. From this example, I can see that this is not a problem in few areas.
I usually eat whatever is left over because we do not have a lot of food. After I clean up I grab my 5 dollar backpack that I got at Goodwill, my shoes for basketball, and my lunch which consists of a bologna and cheese sandwich, a granola bar, and a water. “Hey Ryan! You ready for the big game today?” Tonight is the biggest game of the season, and Bret is one of my best friends from the basketball team. “Hey, I am so ready, Bret!” Bret told me that my english teacher postponed the test that we had today.
He then gets his food and now it seems he doesn’t even want to eat it. He starts to scream and cry, and I really don’t know what brought this on. His dad tries to calm him down and when he does Grayson got up and tried to climb back over the gate but was unsuccessful. After this he went back to the kitchen table and does eat some of his hotdog while drinking out of the sippie cup. After his meal he started to play with his dad a little bit.
Mark often suffers with muscle aches and pains. He said this is due to driving for his job and lifting heavy packages and also playing a lot of sports. Mark has never been in such agony that he has had to consult a doctor but would like to see if aromatherapy could help with the problem. The last time Mark was at the doctors was 6 months ago and that was a checkup as he had an operation on his knee as he tore his cruiciate ligament. Mark reckons his diet is not very healthy.
Find evidence of fixation in the case study. What would have caused this fixation? The personality type that hank displays is the unconscious being the fact that hank doesn’t really know what other think of him and he thinks sally left him because of his weight. The stage he is fixated at is the oral stage and this is because hank bites his nails, smokes, and he eats ice cream when he is stressed. Also, he gets loud in public and argues with people when he feels a certain type of way.
In Kafka’s “A Hunger Artist”, the Hunger Artist is alienated through the audience’s misunderstanding, the nature of his art, and his manager’s intentions for him. The Hunger Artist’s audience only takes a shallow interest in the artist: “for their [children’s] elders he was often just a joke that happened to be in fashion, but the children stood open-mouthed, holding each other’s hands for greater security, marveling at him” (Kafka 274). At first, the crowd is enthusiastic towards the incredible display of the Hunger Artist’s ability to fast for weeks on end, ask him questions, and feel the thinness of his limbs for themselves. This feeling of having the public interested keeps the Artist in the field of professional fasting. The spectators must conform to “[T]he hunger artist’s highly disciplined, honest respect for his craft” (Melchionne 144).
Robert's main presenting problems were food refusal and oppositional attitude to any therapeutic interventions unless they were carefully planned to match his own pace of recovery. Interestingly, any positive feedback from staff could actually make things worse, and the individuals working with him were expected to 'slow down' all interventions, which was very unusual compared to other treatments for young people provided on our unit. It reached a point where I nearly thought we were pacing two steps forward and one step backward to achieve anything with Robert. PRS is a debilitating mental health condition and the person affected seems to be enacting their distress rather than verbalising their problem. As Lask (2004) described: ‘The presenting clinical picture is unlike that of any other condition and is comparable to that of a cornered, wounded and terrified animal’ (p.154).
Ben then continues thinking about Suzy, night and day; he tosses and turns on his bed, he watches movies, he reads books, he goes for long bus rides – in short, Ben is turned to an insomniac after the break up. Finding an extra eight hours every day, Ben decides to take on the night shift at his local 24-hour supermarket. There, Ben meets several loud, eccentric characters – Barry, Matt, Jenkins and Brian – and a girl that he will eventually fall for, Sharon Pintey. The movie explores how each of Ben’s colleagues while their hours way, as Ben, himself, discovers an extraordinary ability to pass his time: the ability to stop time. For his night shift, Ben spends his time stopping time and admiring the customers, sketching them.
