On Stage Harry is a 33-year-old man who lives in Seattle with his wife. He has been employed as a salesperson for an insurance company since graduating from college. He came to a private psychiatrist, recommended by a friend, complaining of “anxiety at work.” Harry describes himself as having been outgoing and popular throughout his adolescence and young adulthood, with no serious problems until his third year of college. He then began to become extremely tense and nervous when studying for tests and writing papers. His heart would pound; his hands would sweat and tremble. Consequently, he often did not write the required papers and, when he did, would submit them after the date due. He could not understand why he was so nervous about doing papers and taking exams when he had always done well in these tasks in the past. As a result of his failure to submit certain papers and his late submission of others, his college grades were seriously affected. Soon after graduation, Harry was employed as a salesperson for an insurance firm. His initial training (attending lectures, completing reading assignments) proceeded smoothly. However, as soon as he begun to take on clients, his anxiety returned.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
