Carol Strong Years of deception and fraud --> Antisocial Personality Disorder
DSM-IV definition of APD
Failure to conform
Lack of remorse
Evidence of Conduct Disorder with onset before age 15
Antisocial Personality Disorder does not necessarily imply physical violence; Hurting others can appear as stealing and mistreating Evidence of Early-Onset Conduct Disorder Loneliness, Remorse What would the pros say? Freud
The pleasure principle: People seek pleasure in order to satisfy their psychological and biological needs
Frank's need for pleasure was satisfied by women
Frank’s biological urges and selfish behavior --> very strong ID (Freud’s Structural Model)
Frank’s Ego, or sense of self, was a cause for his desire to convince the world of his success What would the pros say? Erikson's stages of development
Little information on stages prior to Identity vs. Role Confusion (13-21)
Frank experienced role confusion issues; failed to develop sense of self/identity
Intimacy vs. Isolation
Frank developed intimacy with his wife
Generativity vs. Stagnation
Frank developed generativity; Had a family, found work in forge prevention What would the pros say? Maslow’s hierarchy of needs
Frank always satisfied physiological needs first, as expected
Hierarchy order does not quite apply past that
Frank satisfies self-esteem, the fourth level, before the second and third levels which are safety and love
Maslow’s self-actualization theory
Very appropriate when applied to older Frank
He has accomplished a lot; Successful career
He has developed morality, creativity, and an ability to problem solve
