Anwar Malik, a 54 year old grocer, lives with his wife Hansa and youngest son Iqbal. He migrated from Pakistan as a young Muslim who uses Punjabi and Urdu as his first language, but speaks English to his wife in their shop. Usually an active and hardworking man, Anwar had been feeling increasingly tired and lethargic, and was always thirsty. Hansa noticed him being less active around the house and going to the toilet a lot. Anwar’s daily visits to his allotment dwindled to once a week and when he was there found less work was being done.
In this essay, I will assess Miss E’s issues surrounding her weight loss and will then go on to describe a treatment plan that would be appropriate for the client taking into account any ethical issues. Miss E has explained that she would like to try hypnotherapy for weight loss and she wants to lose 2 and a half stone in 3 months before going on holiday. She explains that she is 29, has come out of a failed relationship 6 months ago and despite feeling ready to meet someone new, she is scared because her previous partner of 6 years was very controlling. She explains that he almost seemed to want her to stay overweight. This was probably because her ex-partner wanted to remain in control within the relationship and was fearful of Miss E meeting someone else if she were to lose weight.
Using the case study provided, identify and explain the client’s issues and devise a course of treatment for him, taking into account any ethical issues. From reading this case study there are a few questionable factors that come up, we can derive from this extract that this individual may possibly have issues with self-esteem, poor locus of evaluation, underlying issues with mother son relationship, portrayed in a way that he may have confrontational fears, or possibly a fear of rejection, when he talks about his “like a girlfriend” it is unclear what he means by this therefore we can only assume that there is something inhibiting this relationship from establishing itself as a serious and stable one. Issues with insecurity and inadequacy within the dynamic of mother and son can also be looked at, i.e. has his mother given him a conditional love and therefore he has matured having this attitude where he feels he always has to please others. With regards to him mentioning that he has nothing to offer his girlfriend , and of course again the fear of rejection, we know that he has the resources to fulfil a managerial position however his fear of upsetting others is preventing him from applying.
It is possible for John to be penalized or he could lose his employment with the company. The Sycamore Pharmaceuticals will get a legal actions called to them for the immoral actions and again Blake may lose his job or at least not receive a bonus at the end of the year. Although the benefits for being honest and informing the FDA about all that he knows about the drug they are promoting should give him a good piece of mind and it will also show people that he is a good and moral person. “Workforce participation is a key feature of public mental health and social inclusion policies across the globe, and often a therapeutic goal in treatment settings”. (Olesen, S. C.,) Together with the mental health that will come from being a good individual Blake should not have a problem getting a new position with a new company if Sycamore Pharmaceuticals decided to let him go or he could just decide to walk out on his own.
Case Study: Mr X as 45 year old estate agent who has been working for the same company for 18 years. The manager’s job in his branch has become available but he has reservations about applying as he does not want to upset the apple cart if he is not successful. He knows deep down that he can do the job as he has stood in for the present manager many times when he has been on leave, but something seems to be holding him back and he cannot quite put his finger on it. He says that all the people in the office see him as a bit boring as he never goes put with them for a drink after work on a Friday. The reason he doesn’t go is because that is the day he visits his mother in the home she lives in, and she would never understand if he changed the day and would pick on him even more than usual.

As you can see what is the point of the hospital sending her very important news about her kid’s health if she could not read the letter (Kozol 257)? Also, as much as knowing how to read is beneficial; knowing how to write goes hand in hand. In his story Laura (the mother) is on welfare to help her with all the expenses and the rent she has to pay to stay at the Martinique Hotel that houses nearly 400 hundred homeless families. During her time there she gets a letter from the welfare office stating that her benefits have been taken away. Her benefits could still be there if she had known how to read and write.
