The Case of Stan
Stan, the client, has decided to take advantage of free counseling services, which are provided, to him, as a service from his college. In his initial interview, Stan begins by expressing dissatisfaction in multiple areas of his life and details his personal problems throughout a brief but very detailed narrative of his past and present life. Stan feels discouraged by the multitude of problems detailed below which included a failed marriage, which didn’t last long, ending in divorce. He mentions that they rarely had sex and states that he was impotent most of the time. Furthermore, he tells us that his ex-wife was dominant and “took delight in telling him how worthless he was”. Stan is hard on him-self and describes feeling as if he has not lived up to his potential and believing that he has “wasted most of his life”. He states that he should have finished college by now and believes he should have a good job. He questions his intelligence and his ability to complete a masters level program; but is interested in doing so because he believes that his career options are limited with only a bachelor degree in psychology. Therefore he talks about earning his masters degree in Counseling Psychology and working with kids.
Stan talks about being helped as a kid by someone who cared about him and he wants to pass on this altruistic gesture; demonstrating an innate awareness the Adlerian principals of “social interest” as it relates to living on the “useful side of life” and “to see with the eyes of another, to hear with the ears of another, to feel with the heart of another”.
Although Stan is deeply discouraged in many areas of his life, he still has the selfreflective capacity to understand some of his positive attributes as witnessed by

statements such as, “And I like my determination” and “everything isn’t so bleak, because I did have enough guts to leave a lot of my shady past behind me and did struggle to get into college”. He communicates that “he lives alone, has very few friends and feels very scared and inferior with people of his own age or older”; specifically mentioning that he has much self-doubt in his abilities to finish his studies because of a lack of confidence in his intellectual abilities.
Stan talks about drinking heavily because he feels alone and is scared; often projecting that he will always be alone and isolated. He also discloses that he has used drugs heavily in the past and still abuses them from time to time. Additionally, Stan reveals that he suffers from overwhelming anxiety around people; especially self-assured women, “I’m so afraid to get close to a woman for fear that she will swallow me up”. Stan makes a point of facing his fears by wanting to work with a woman therapist. He also indicates that he “likes that he feels scared” because he attributes this feeling to being in touch with his feelings. He has thoughts of suicide, occasional bouts of depression and shame about what he refers to as his “shady past”. Stan describes being verbally abused as a child by his parents whom provided little encouragement or support to him. He was told that he was stupid and he “would not amount to anything”. His mother was very dominant and would say horrible things to him like, “you were a mistake”. His lack of self-confidence may be attributed to being put down as a child and his dissuasion seems to stem from his family of origin and their disregard for his feelings. He laments that, out of his four siblings, he turned out to be the “failure”.

...Stancase study: psychology
1.) Stan is a very troubled young man. His real problems come from his extremely low self-esteem. This stemmed from his childhood. During his childhood his whole family contributed to his current issues. His mother shattered his view of women due to the fact she dominated his father and Stan himself. Next, Stan describes his father as “…weak, passive, and mousy…” in which Stan seems to image himself after. Also, Stan was in the shadows of his two brothers and one sister. He was the “black sheep” of the family and his parents let him know that with hurtful words. His family is the main root for his problems, as he got older the issues compounded. An example of this is his ex-wife who had the same tendencies to dictate and control as his mother. Subsequently, Stan thinks he “should” be somewhere else in life at this point. Not a 25 year old sophomore in college. Stan gets down on himself on just about every aspect in life and lacks motivation and encouragement. Furthermore Stan abuses alcohol and drugs which only promotes his destructive behavior. All of these issues combined are crippling Stan’s ability to function normally in society. 2.) There are a few therapies in which Stan can benefit from. One that would b

...Essay about the song Stan by Eminem
Stan is a hip/hop song by the American rapper Eminem. The song is about a guy called Stan, who’s insanely obsessed with his big idol Slim, also known as, Slim Shady who’s Eminem’s alter ego. Through the song Stan writes several letters to Slim to get in contact with him, but Stan never receives an answering letter back from Slim. It ends up with Slim putting his pregnant girlfriend in the trunk of his car, with the purpose of driving off a bridge to commit suicide. Stan is drunk while he’s driving and he’s at the same time recording a last tape, which he wants to send to Slim. He says on the tape that he’s driving 90 mph, which is about 144 kilometres per hour. Just before he gets to the bridge, he realises that he won’t be able to send the tape to Slim, if he drives himself and his girlfriend off the bridge, but he realises that too late, and drives off the bridge.
“Stan” is a fictional story containing four verses, with a hook between each verse. The song also contains a feature by Dido, who’s an English singer-songwriter, who sings every hook in the song. Dido is in the song symbolizing Stans girlfriend.
The first verse is Stan writing a third letter to Slim.”I sent two letters back in autumn, you must not've got em. There probably was a problem at the post office or something.” After this he...
...The fact of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary is related in Luke 1:26-38. The Evangelist tells us that in the sixth month after the conception of St. John the Baptist by Elizabeth, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to the Virgin Mary, at Nazareth, a small town in the mountains of Galilee. Mary was of the house of David, and was espoused (i.e. married) to Joseph, of the same royal family. She had, however, not yet entered the household of her spouse, but was still in her mother's house, working, perhaps, over her dowry. (Bardenhewer, Maria Verk., 69). And the angel having taken the figure and the form of man, came into the house and said to her: "Hail, full of grace (to whom is given grace, favoured one), the Lord is with thee." Mary having heard the greeting words did not speak; she was troubled in spirit, since she knew not the angel, nor the cause of his coming, nor the meaning of the salutation. And the angel continued and said: "Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God. Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he shall reign in the house of Jacob forever. And of his kingdom there shall be no end." The Virgin understood that there was question of the coming Redeemer. But, why should she be elected from amongst women for the splendid dignity of being...
Case Study Analysis: Jess Westerly at Kauflauf GmbH
Date: 03- 13-2016
CMN 6000: Introduction to Organizational Communication
Jess Westerly is the assistant product owner of CRM applications for computer and office supply wholesalers and retailers at Kauflauf. It is a fast-growing provider of subscription enterprise software headquartered in Heidelberg, Germany. Being new and outsider Westerly tries to implement a change in sales call patterns and failed. She introduced and explained the changes to the sales department through a memo that outlined her directive and explained the reasons behind it. Field consultants (FC) immediately offended and complained about the infringement on their decisions about how to spend their time and the insensitivity to the relationship-oriented nature of developing business. Three months later, however no discernible changes occurred in call patterns. Westerly felt that her efforts had amounted to failure and feeble attempt at change had cost her heavily in terms of credibility within the organization and with Regional sales directors (RSD) and filed consultants (FC) in particular. Then she revisited, analyzed and developed a robust proposal and presented it to key senior managers and is given three weeks to come up with a comprehensive plan. If the plan is acceptable, she will be asked to implement it (Gabarro & Kaftan, 2012).
