Case Study 1: Sigmund Freud 1. According to Freud, hank is a person who is fixated on the Oral Stage of Development. Hank constantly has something in his mouth. Whether it is food, a cigarette, or his hands, Hank needs to have something in his mouth to help to soothe him when he is agitated, anxious, irritated, etc. In the study it states that “…he [Hank] often chews his fingernails when he is nervous” and “Once he finished of the pint [of ice cream], he pulled out a cigarette and lit it” and “He had always been sarcastic and his biting comments alienated him from his peers even as a child”. An explanation of this behavior would be that when Hank was an infant, “His cries sed to pierce the air, and his mother would often rush to make a bottle for Hank or give him a cookie to regain some peace and quiet…”. Hank’s mother reinforced this behavior by giving him the attention he desired every time he cried out. From this, Hank learned that if he is loud enough he will get the attention he desired.

    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.
