Spoken Interview With Highgrove Representative

Representative: Thank you for meeting with me today. We will now begin the recorded interview. I will ask you a series of standard questions. Please try to answer them to the best of your ability. So, firstly, how are you feeling today?

Resident: I’m fucking fantastic, doctor.
Patient Observations: Harold appears irritated but overall relaxed, showing no anxiety of any kind.

Representative: And what circumstances have led you to apply for residency at the Highgrove Home for Children?

Resident: I don’t know, doc, you tell me. Was it beating up the kids at the country club or pushing my sister down the stairs that did me in? No, it had to be the class hamster that I flushed down the toilet when I was six. Because it couldn’t have anything to do with the time I put that kid in the hospital for taking my book without asking. Or the girl who thought it’d be cute to suggestively stroke my favorite guitar. Mum doesn’t know that about the kids whose faces I held in the mud so I wasn’t that. Unless one of the little shits squealed…

Representative: Do you have any medical conditions we should be aware of? If so, please explain.

Resident: I’m healthy as a fucking horse.

Representative: Have you ever been diagnosed with a psychiatric illness? If yes, have you ever been hospitalised or sent to a special care facility for these illnesses?

Resident: Mum thinks I’m fucked in the head and she’s probably right. That hamster I flushed down made me laugh, especially when the kids started looking for him. They’ve taken me to doctors like you to keep the families from pressing charges and they say I’ve got Conduct Disorder. I read about it and it seems fairly spot on. I start fights, hurt little fluffy critters, steal, lie, cheat etc. Pretty much use the symptoms like a check list.

Representative: How does your current state of mind affect your day to day life? Are there any incidences of note which you feel are a direct result of your state of mind, such as suicide attempts, arrests, hospitalisations, et cetera?

Resident: Have you been asleep for this entire interview? If people piss me off I lash out without thinking. They shouldn’t be touching my stuff or getting in my way and a broken arm will get that message across.

Representative: have you ever harmed yourself, others, or animals? If yes, please explain.

Resident: No, yes, and yes. I’m no cutter or anything but I’m not gonna lie and say I don’t like watching other get hurt. You know how people feel when they look at something they’ve accomplished? I feel the same way when I look at the damage I’ve done.

Representative: We understand you are having trouble at your current place of residence. Could you please describe the problems you are having, and the results or repercussions that have come about because of them?

Resident: My parents don’t want me around anymore. I’m too much of a problem and they want it to go away. I’ve broken too many bones, lied too many times, and embarrassed them enough to taint the family name for generations. They’ve said they still love me, and that when I’m all better I can come home and make amends, but it’s probably so I don’t feel abandoned. I don’t give a shit either way. My trust fund isn’t going anywhere.

Representative: What five words would you use to best describe yourself?

Resident: A ray of fucking sunshine.

Representative: Do you have many friends? Could you describe your relationships and where you met these friends?

Resident: There were a few kids that hung around me because I was “bad ass” and no one fucked with me without losing teeth. That group had a quick turn over because I didn’t give enough of a shit to maintain it. Most were too afraid of me to stick around for very long.

Representative: How would you describe your relationship with your biological family? Did you spend much time with them? Do you have any siblings?

Resident: I’m pretty sure my family is afraid of me as well. I’m a nightmare to deal with and have been since a kid. My sister Angela won’t stay in the same room with me for more than a few minutes at a time and my mum won’t hug me. Dad’s indifferent or just doesn’t want to show that I freak him as well. They seem to care though for some reason. I guess it’s that ‘only son’ thing that gives them hope.

Representative: Are you sexually active? If yes, are you aware of any sexual preferences regarding gender or situation?

Resident: Yes, I am. Gender doesn’t matter all that much since everyone screams and bleeds. I like pain but not done to me. I like it when I hurt others.

Representative: Where did you grow up, and what was it like there? How do you feel about where you grew up?

Resident: Right here. I’ve been in London my whole life among the rich and retarded. That right there should tell you how I feel about it.

Representative: How is school? What are your grades like, and do you enjoy it? Do you participate in any after-school activities?

Resident: I didn’t participate in any after school activities but school work has always come easy to me. I’m just good at it. I might start fights and get in trouble but my work was almost always done and I scored high on tests.

Representative: What do you hope to find at the Highgrove Home, and how do you feel about potentially becoming a resident there?

Resident: It pisses me off that I’m being sent somewhere but there’s not much I can do about it. Might as well make the best of it, right?

Representative: Lastly, how do you feel about what you have done so far with your life, looking back on it. If you have done unacceptable things, how do you now feel about those?

Resident: Is that a trick question? I do believe I’ve answered this time and time again. I don’t feel anything except that I might have made a poor judgment call here or there.

Therapy Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Harold Masterson
    Therapist Name: Dr. Gunner Bjorgen
    Patient Observations: Body language and mannerisms displayed a lack of regard for others and disinterest in the group. He spent much of the time pretending to doze, before he became glib during his answer and then violent and flippant at the end of the session.
    Therapy Report: When asked to explain why he was at Highgrove, he recounted his misdeeds as if reciting them from an encyclopedia and seemed rather pleased with himself and glib, no doubt expecting some reprimanding response. When no attention was granted to this attention seeking behaviour, he became angry and violent as the group was dismissed. Following destruction of property, he was asked to remain behind. He became hostile and offensive, and then physically violent, attempting to attack myself, for which he had to be sedated for the safety of both he and myself. He was remanded to seclusion to sleep off the effects of 2mg IV lorazepam solution.
    Notes: Referred to seclusion for non-specified duration. Seclusion duration pending follow-up session. Medication recommended. Use of IV medication is authorised should patient become violent.

Group Activity Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Harold Masterson
    Residing Adult Name: Eileen McDonald
    Patient Observations: Harold was mainly quiet unless being spoken to during the session. He spoke out of turn one or two times but stopped once he was reprimanded. He seemed rather sluggish, likely due to the sedatives in his system, but they did not prevent him from participating in group activities.
    Therapy Report: Harold favors using foul language when addressing both his peers and adults it seems. When asked to draw what made him happy Harold drew a bruise. He explained that "beating up people" made him happy. Considering his file I think he showed some restraint by drawing only a bruise and not something that would upset the other children.
    Notes: Aside from perhaps needing a bar of soap for his mouth, Harold was decently behaved during the activity. There did seem to be tension between he and Cecil Sharpe - whenever they made eye contact, Cecil showed obvious signs of stress and fear. I would suggest someone to keep an eye on them since they share the same bunk.

Behavioural Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Harold Masterson
    Reporting Staff Name: Dr. Gunner Bjorgen
    Behavioural Observation: During the festivities of Christmas Night, it is believed that Masterson attacked and successfully assaulted two other male residents in the men's room (Cecil Sharpe and Isaiah Petit), breaking the nose and splitting the scalp of one, and grievously bruising the other. A blond young man was spied fleeing the scene. Later interrogation of Isaiah Petit confirmed the presence of a resident boy with blond hair at the scene, who is said to have punched each boy in the face. Given review of the physical appearances of the male residents of Highgrove and Masterson's propensity for violence, he was called in for interrogation. He was proved to have been the boy at the scene and showed little to no remorse for his actions.
    Measures Taken: A therapy session established an agreement and understanding that future incidents will result in definite consequences up to and including more seclusion time and medication adjustments. At this time, Masterson is released from seclusion and his medication ceased, in order to observe whether his new understanding of the rules and consequences for breaking them will have bearing on his attitude and actions. I believe we have made a small breakthrough at the very least through demonstrating that his actions will not be met with a simple slap on the hand, as they were at his place of residence.

Behavioural Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Harold Masterson
    Reporting Staff Name: Dr. Gunner Bjorgen
    Behavioural Observation: Masterson arrived at my office without an appointment this afternoon. It was clear he had come to speak about something, though until prompted to remain in the office and to take a seat, he tried to leave without discussing the matter which brought him to my office. Once he was seated, it was extracted from him that he had engaged in inappropriate contact with another resident (later established as Cecil Sharpe) and that he had used a box cutter he claims to have found to exact a number of superficial injuries on the other boy. He handed in the box cutter and was forthcoming with information. This is not an optimal result, but his openness and honesty on the matter is a far step forward from our last session. I am led, however, to believe that his motivation for coming forward may not be so genuine and selfless, but rather a step taken in the hopes of negating any negative consequences that may have arisen from Sharpe's condition being discovered later. Over all I find the result pleasing in Masterson's case. He has actively taken responsibility for his actions and has been honest and forthcoming with details, despite whatever motivations may have prompted him to do so. He very well might have said nothing, as the boys were not apprehended. I see this as progress.

    Further to this, Masterson indicated that he was experiencing what I would consider as 'feelings' for Sharpe. He stressed that he was unable to get the other resident 'out of his head' but not in the sort of malicious, violently intended manner to which he is normally accustomed. This too, I consider progress. Masterson has not admitted to ever feeling any sort of connection to another. Further study on their association to one another should be carried out to assess Masterson's exact state. Emerging traits of Antisocial Personality Disorder may not be as cut and dry as they seem.

    Measures Taken: Dr. M. Rose was contacted and informed of the likely state of his patient, Cecil Sharpe, and a search for the boy was performed. He was later found injured, and was taken to the medical clinic. Mr. Masterson is to be remanded to seclusion for a duration of three days, in which he is instructed to study the resident handbook and think seriously about his association with Sharpe. He is encouraged to explore his own thoughts and feelings to try to understand his mental state better. We will meet again after he has had time for reflection. No medication is prescribed at this time.

Therapy Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Harold Masterson
    Therapist Name: Dr. Gunner Bjorgen
    Patient Observations: Mr. Masterson began the session somewhat flippantly, taking up a passive agressive slouch in his chair, which he corrected with some reluctance when asked to. He remained sitting properly throughout the rest of the group therapy session, but appeared not to be paying much -if any- attention to the rest of the group.
    Therapy Report: When asked to state one thing that he misses from before Highgrove, Mr' Masterson initially replied that he misses not being able to remember the last twenty-four hours. The answer was flippant and impatient in nature. When it was put to him once again that he should remark on something he misses from before his admission, he stated he misses not being on medication. He later defined a relationship as sex and violence toward the other person involved. When asked to define love, he replied that love can be defined as something that makes people do crazy things they wouldn't ordinarily do. He was later asked to elaborate on his answer and talk about the feeling of love itself, and stated that he doesn't know, as he has never been in love. I do not believe his answer was fully accurate, or that he wholly believes in it, given earlier mentioned thoughts and sentiments toward patient C. Sharpe. The purpose of his line of questioning was to prompt introspection on this very subject, which Mr. Masterson attempted to evade entirely with clipped and passive agressive responses. He was kept behind at the end of the session for an impromptu individual session in which we discussed the importance of his paying attention during group therapy sessions, the importance of his own self control, and the nature of cause and effect in regard to his actions. Having reached a tentative understanding on the latter point, he was dismissed.
    Notes: Therapy with Mr. Masterson is ongoing, focusing on cause and effect, responsibility for his actions, forethought, care for others around him, self control, and analysing his own thoughts and feelings, as well as the thoughts and feelings of others around him. In order to enable him to continue this course of therapy, his medication is henceforth ceased, though use of IV lorazepam is still authorised in case of violent outburts. Any and all behavioural reports are to be handed to me personally, for immediate review.

Therapy Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Harold Masterson
    Therapist Name: Miranda Samedi
    Patient Observations: Harold entered the room and greeted both myself and Ms. Adele politely. He spoke when spoken to, volunteering his opinions on what sort of cookie to make and showing some enthusiasm for the activity. He did not interact much with the other students aside from a few whispered comments to Milton at the beginning of the session, whilst we were waiting for Maggie to calm herself, and towards the end, when he initiated a conversation with the other boys regarding the cookies he had made and his medication. I believe that this was a positive session for Harold. Overall, he was well-behaved and a pleasure to be around.
    Therapy Report: N/A.
    Notes: From reading the previous notes in his file, and his application to attend Highgrove, I believe that Harold has already come a long way in improving - his behavior rapidly changing in the short time he has been here.

Therapy Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Harold Masterson
    Therapist Name:Dr. N. Zvarich
    Patient Observations: Mr. Masterson began the session quietly choosing to observe the other participants initially, was mostly controlled though engaged in two minor verbal skirmishes with Miss Bryne whom he seemed to clash with from the outset.

    Therapy Report:The topics were Power and Control and how the perceptions of having or lacking either has effected the lives and behaviors of the group. Many of the residents here have issues with maintaining the illusion of or struggling under the lack of either power, control, or both. The topic branched into the subset of Power and control in Relationships through a discussion started by Mr. Masterson and Miss Byrne. He had no problems answering on the issue of control, stating "power is controlling" when asked to elaborate he stated he felt a lack of control because he is "in a home for crazies." At this Miss Byrne became defensive and he countered that any resident at Highgrove must be considered crazy. The session was redirected and his response was to fold his arms over his chest and slouch, he sat up again to goad Miss Byrne stating that her reluctance to believe anyone has control or power was because she lacked it. The topic moved on to relationships and control, he stated that relationships are "all about control" and "From my understanding they are nothing but a power struggle."

    Notes:Mr. Masterson has been off his previous medication therapy for the last month and this was his first topic-oriented group session. He continues to show a lack of understanding concerning relationships and all of the elements within. He persists in viewing them as nothing more than power struggles, where dominance and submission are the only factors. When prompted further he did not consider other factors in relationships he reiterated his previous statement, obviously not integrating any emphatic response into the concept of interpersonal relationships at this time. When Miss Bryne fell out of her seat Mr. Masterson was the only one to laugh at her, this is noted because it is pertinent to his recovery. Empathy is something Masterson continues to struggle with.
