I believe that this was the time when he realized that the separation from his parents did not mean death but finding his own place in the world. However, this left him with an increased amount of anxiety, which led him towards making his own mistakes learning that life is not always easy as it seems. Because of his anxiousness he soon began developing symptoms of a ‘hypochondriac’ as he associated even a “minor ache as a medical emergency” (Ostwald, 1997).

Hopefully I can find it as being supportive by sharing my testimony to help them move forward from their hurt. Everyone will face challenges and significant events throughout their lives.
Tracey also had negative tension towards her mother’s boyfriend along with emotionally distancing herself from her mother and birth father. Furthermore, I also believe cognitive behavioral therapies may aid Tracey in any drug addiction she may have developed. Lastly, family therapy may be vital in gaining more insight towards the family dynamic. Perhaps the whole family is affected by past events, thus they all have coped with such events by abusing drugs. As far as a treatment plan, I think this would be a start to understanding Tracey as a person, her family dynamic and even her drastic shift in her social

He claimed he saw his biological mother died at the age of four in such a violent way, which could be a reason why Dexter has trouble connecting with anyone sexually or emotionally.

Over a deviation of history, child abuse was perceived as a private rather than a societal concern (Afe, Emedoh, Ogunsemi, Adegbohun, 2016). Child abuse and neglect is what is motivating me to become a counselor. Unfortunately, I endured abuse and neglect in my youth. In addition to the emotional abuse, I grew up with an alcoholic father with acute depression and anxiety and a mother who suffered from schizophrenia and also was deteriorating from a past divorce with my father. Indeed, It was not healthy witnessing the perpetual battling between my mother and father, thus influences in my future student practice of professional counseling.
The self-esteem determines a way how a person perceives the character, individual traits, appearance, and their own life. In a lot of aspects, the self-esteem defines the quality of life, expectations, approaches to communication and relations with other people. Low self-esteem is one of the most alerting negative factors as it might potentially be related to the development of depression, social phobia and anxiety, aggression towards the other people. To begin with, numerous recent pieces of research determined that there is a strong correlation between the low self-esteem and depression. At the same time, the way how they correlate remains not entirely clear in the cause-and-effect aspect.
The close relationship with his daughter was dwindling and was starting to affect his life. Once married everything took the turn for the worse resulting in more anger outburst, depression, medication modifications, insomnia, job loss and complete isolation from the family and therapy sessions were non-existent.

I believe that Holden Caulfield is mentally disturbed and shows many signs of it throughout the novel. Problems in Holden’s life that have led him to this rest home are the death of his brother Allie, his multiple failures throughout his academic career, and his distress about moving on in life. Holden deals with these problems by drinking and smoking throughout the novel. He also shows depression throughout the novel by being kicked out of multiple schools and being over-critical of people when he describes them. I feel that he is very disturbed and had not been able to deal with his problems before.
