PSYC 221 – Introduction to Psychological Science9.Lately, Jon has been getting into physical fights and recently got arrested for trying to steal a car. When his mom went to bail him out of jail, she told police officers that she doesn’t know what to do with her son, as he lacks remorse for his behavior. She also revealed that this has been going on for a long time – when he was a kid, he would even throw rocks at the stray cats in the neighborhood. Jon probably has Antisocial Personality Disorder since he has been showing violent tendencies since childhood without remorse. 10. Sam's friends are starting to worry about him. Normally energetic and fun-loving, Sam has become withdrawn and sullen. He has lost weight, is constantly tired, and hasn't been showing up to lacrosse practice or to his fraternity meetings. In his conversations with others, he expresses feelings of doubt and unworthiness, and seems to be showing some risk factors for suicide.Sam might be developing Major Depressive Disorder since he has been losing interest in the things he is involved in, the lacrosse and fraternity. He also expresses feelings of worthlessness and doubt while having conversation with others.

    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.
