2Week 5 AssignmentSocial Deviance ExperimentTo help minimize anxiety in adults with mental disabilities I am often acting out ofsocieties norms on a regular, daily basis. For this particular experiment I had totake a client shopping. Something you or I would not think twice about, can turninto anhour’slong affair with reassurances, expectations, and repeated reminders.It is truly exhausting and can wear down your mental state of mind if you let it getto you. You may think,“How can something so simple as writing a list, going tothe store, and buying things off that list be so difficult?”And it just is.For this I chose to do something that would make my clients laugh and feeldistracted from all their options at the store and the anxiety and anger brought onby those options they can not have either due to a lack of funds or diet restrictions.
