Woke Up Tuesday it Was Friday Essay

… ¶ … Woke Up Tuesday it Was Friday," there is a considerable amount of difference between relatively normal, typical distraction and full-fledged disassociation. Distraction, for the most part, is a relatively temporal occurrence, which both begins and ends fairly readily and is usually due to some tangible, known cause -- such as a loud noise, the changing of tunes on the radio, or some other fairly understandable occurrence. Disassociation is much more prolonged and, for the most part, enigmatic. Via disassociation, a person can miss entire periods of his or her life, such as a significant portion of a work week -- hence the title of this particular article. One of the most confounding characteristics about disassociation, and which is certainly contrasted with common distraction,…. [read more]

Woke Up Tuesday it Was Friday Offers Essay

… ¶ … Woke Up Tuesday it Was Friday" offers a vivid, unflinching glance into the victims of trauma and the psychological processes that the human mind goes through to overcome the effects of traumatic experiences. The essay illustrates a number of different aspects of these processes, including, most eminently, that of disassociation in which the mind disengages from an active state of awareness to allow victims to "remove" themselves from emotionally and physically stressful situations, by chronicling the perceptions of patients of Stout. By illustrating these patients' daily struggles with the mind's coping of traumatic experience, the reader is given a virtual firsthand experience of what it is like to endure severely psychologically affecting events. Furthermore, detailing these processes within her patients allows the author…. [read more]

Violent Effects of Disassociation Essay


Violent Effects of Disassociation

In Martha Stout's essay "When I Woke Up Tuesday Morning it Was Friday," the author details the phenomenon known as disassociation. Disassociation is a way in which the human brain reacts to certain traumatic events by "removing" itself from them in a figurative sense. Therefore, people who disassociate are able to get through disaster and terrible occurrences by mentally or psychically distancing themselves from the event. The problem is, disassociation definitely causes havoc with one's memory, since people who disassociate frequently at some point of their lives are likely to lose the ability to remain mentally aware in other aspects of their lives -- largely because they are so used to the dissociative process and engaging in it. Susan Faludi's…. [read more]

… Trauma

Idiosyncratic Ambiguity: A Bad Scene

In Faludi's essay, the author details the routine hazing practices that occur at a paramilitary institution in which faculty members and personnel accept and endure misogyny and violence that has a traumatic effect on both parties. Stout's essay explains the phenomenon known as disassociation, which is a way of mentally and physically distancing oneself from traumatic events. This phenomenon is explored through a variety of case studies of the psychologist's different client.…. [read more]

Gilbert Short or Long-Term in Theory Essay

… Gilbert

Short or Long-Term

In theory, there appears to be a fairly straightforward relationship between self-esteem and happiness. It is fairly rational to believe that what makes us feel good about ourselves, which is what self-esteem essentially both does and reflects, would ideally lead us to a state of happiness that should only be punctured by the unpredictable vicissitudes of life. However, a couple of authors have actually written a body of literature that pertains to the relationship between self-esteem and happiness, but which suggests that this relationship is not in alignment with that of the aforementioned viewpoint. Both Daniel Gilbert, in an essay titled "Immune to Reality" that is an excerpt from a chapter in a book he has written called Stumbling on Happiness,…. [read more]

Krakauer the Subversion of Felicity Essay

… Krakauer

The Subversion of Felicity

There are several instances in the essay of Jon Krakauer entitled "Selections From Into the Wild" in which the author elucidates some of the principles espoused by Daniel Gilbert in the latter's essay "Immune to Reality." Krakauer's essay traces the adventures and misadventures of a young man who journeys into the Alaskan wilderness because he believe it will make him happy. Gilbert's essay is largely about the fact that people do not actually know what makes them happy, and that what makes them feel good for the moment will actually produce unhappiness in the future. The experiences of Chris McCandless, the young man in Krakauer's essay, demonstrate that what Chris believed would make him happy did not and eventually led…. [read more]

daily log of substance abuse reduction Chapter

… At last the activities of the day came to an end. Everyone rushed in all directions, clearly preoccupied with the activities of the weekend that they all wanted so badly to delve into. I was more than happy that at last I had the chance to get out of the routine work environment, head home and engage in social activities and recreational activities that would give me a reprieve and relief from the monotonous boring school work. As I walked into the house, the need to beat the craving for the 4pm cigar was clear in my mind. I know I have to engage in other activities to distract me from the craving for the cigars. The week had ended and I was focused on…. [read more]

Question a: Retelling: From the point-of-view of a retired California resident whose children went to private schools.

Unsurprisingly, the necessary cuts in state financing and tuition hikes caused vocal student radicals to take to the streets in California. This has been typical of the state for as long as I have been a resident! A responsible young adult should realize that everyone has to feel some pain in the struggle to get state spending under control after years of liberal fiscal policies. Yes, education is valuable, but…. [read more]

Dockers Is a Levi Strauss Essay

… It seems that acknowledging this market, but then attempting to enter the luxury apparel sector is essentially ignoring the market Dockers should be targeting. In a recession, Dockers should be attempting to target this untapped market at the price point for which it is known. While the twentysomethings about whom Riley-Grant is speaking may not be purchasing Dockers, but they are certainly aware what Dockers are, where they are sold and how much they cost. The marketing for Dockers must acknowledge this audience and attempt to persuade them that Dockers are still relevant and what they are selling today is something different that will appeal to the target market. Changing the price and attempting to become a more exclusive product may backfire in the current…. [read more]
