As a young child Benjamin Carson went through a lot more than a child should go through. His mother was extremely depressed and had to go into a mental institution, his father had left them for another family he had, had secretly, and he was doing terrible in school . I can completely relate to the fact that he did not have his father in his life, because my biological father was out of my life every since I was four years old because my mom had an affair with my step dad now, while my dad was in jail, then when he came back they got a divorce. So they both went on to separate lives, but like Ben Carson I also think I am better off without my father in my life because even when he had the chance to see me or my sister he choose not to call or to see me or my sister. A problem Ben was having in school as a child was that he was unable to get to the top of his class and that bothered him.
Richard’s Case Conceptualization: Psychodynamic/Object Relations Theory Hypothesis based on theory’s concepts Richard’s history suggests that he did not have the opportunity to form adequate attachment bonds with his mother or father (he reports both parents as alcoholic and absent). It appears that he also lacked other adult figures in his environment (relatives, siblings) with whom to form significant relations (he was an only child and reports being very lonely and isolated as a child). Because of this deprivation of any significant nurturing relationship, as a child Richard must have felt great pain; together with the pain he likely experienced great anger both towards himself (blaming himself for his pain, feeling inadequate) and towards others (primarily maternal/paternal figures for failing to meet his needs). He might have concluded that he was not loved because he is defective and, therefore, not lovable, developing a negative sense of self. In order to avoid this pain, it is possible that early on, as a defense mechanism, Richard disconnected himself to a certain extent from his emotional self.
To the townspeople and the reader it makes perfect sense that somehow from the grave her father still has control over her, “as if that quality of her father had thwarted her woman’s life so many times had too virulent and too furious to die”(532). Norman is also raised by an overbearing parent and suffers his twisted upbringing at the hands of his
Without anyone to talk to while growing up, Antwone found it very difficult to express his inner thoughts which often led to violence. This can be seen when someone comments on his sexuality and he decides to start a fight instead of just talking it through or simply ignoring it. Antwone Fisher grew up around abusive people that often made poor decisions in their life and because of this Antwone has not been able to distinguish between right and wrong when faced with certain challenges in his life. An example of this in the film can be seen when his best friend is shot before his eyes while holding up a convenience store.
The Puritan community in The Crucible was vulnerable in many ways and susceptible to irrational and panicky accusations of the Salem Witch Hunts because of their strict and constricting ways. The children in the community are treated very poorly and less than everyone else in the town. As the Salem Witch Hunts were essentially started by the children the fact that they were treated as lesser beings contributed to the communities demise. “He (Reverend Parris) regarded them as young adults, an until this strange crisis he, like the rest of Salem, never conceived that the children were anything but thankful for being permitted to walk straight, eyes slightly lowered, arms at their sides, and mouths shut until bidden to speak,” (Miller 3). Miller foreshadows the Witch Hunts to come.
