  • Thousand Cranes By Yasunari Kawabata - 1,658 words
    ... ly maintains throughout the course of the story. The last words of the book reinforce this continued loathing- " 'And only Kurimoto is left.' As if spitting out all the accumulated venom on the woman he took for his enemy, Kikuji hurried into the shade of the park." I think that it can safely be concluded that this is one aspect of his past that Kikuji will never change his position on. As Chikako cleans the cottage, "The sound of her broom became the sound of a broom sweeping the contents of his skull, and her cloth polishing the veranda a cloth rubbing at his skull." This extraordinary metaphor gives us great insight into Kikuji's attitude towards his past and his memories. There are t ...

  • Dantes Monsters - 1,504 words
    Dante's Monsters The monsters in Dante's Inferno are drawn almost directly from classical mythology. He creates some small demons and other beings, but the major monsters are taken from Greek and Roman lore. Dante uses monsters in his poem for many purposes. They all have specific jobs and are not just there purely to freighted the reader. Most of the jobs, that the monsters serve are in a modified municipal fashion. They are ferrymen, and guards to the prisons of hell. The monsters are not truly feared by the other characters of the story, for the people just seem to expect the monsters to do the jobs that they are doing. On the other hand, the demons that Dante creates are objects that str ...

The question is then, if the behavior is one way, can it be better? This is a very simple and straightforward look at therapy. What behavior is responsible for causing the difficulty and how do we modify it? He highlights in the Identity Society (1975) principles of Reality therapy: involvement of the therapist or helper, awareness of the current behavior, evaluating behavior to see if it is good for the client or people who care about the client, Planning responsible behavior, commitment to the plan (usually with a signed contract), non acceptan ...

  • Insomnia - 1,446 words
    Insomnia Lying among tousled sheets, eluded by sleep with thoughts racing, many people wrestle with the nightly demon named insomnia.

So what did we do at this meeting? First of all, we had to decide on a Rational Process by which we could go about handling this dilemma. What issues did we need to deal with, and in what order did we need to deal with them so that we would arrive at a rational decision? Yes ...
