Milton Wenceslaus

Post  Milton Wenceslaus on Sun Jan 08, 2012 5:28 am

I am Doctor Amelia Jones, Milton's psychologist. I will be filling out the written portion of the application for him, as he does not feel comfortable doing it himself.

Medical Screening

Do you have any ongoing medical conditions for which you require long-term treatment or medications?

N/A.

Are you aware of any allergies you may have to foods, medications or environmental elements? If so, please list them below along with age of onset.

Milton does not have any allergies but refuses to eat meat.

Do you take any other medications or drugs not prescribed to you, or participate in the consumption of alcohol or tobacco?

Milton takes a daily iron supplement, but no other medications at this time. He does not smoke and has never taken any drugs, nor does he consume alcohol but for a small glass of wine most evenings at supper under the supervision of his current foster parents.


__________________________________________________________________
Environmental Screening

Where were you born and where did you grow up? What was it like there?

Milton was born and has lived in Petersfield his whole life. He claims that he doesn't mind the small country town but otherwise seems to hold no definitive opinion on the matter. Petersfield is a scenic town located not too far from Portsmouth and London. It is my belief that Milton wouldn't care where he lived, as he has never been too interested in the outdoors and has never spoken to me about traveling.

Please describe your relationships with your biological family, including parents, and siblings if applicable.

Growing up, Milton did not know his mother save what he saw of her in old photographs of his parents. She died suddenly of a brain aneurysm at age 34, one year after he was born. From that point on, he lived solely with his father up until the age of 12, having no siblings. His father never remarried. Milton regrets never having known his mother and speaks little of his relationship with his father as it makes him nervous and uncomfortable. What I have gleaned from him, and through the accounts of his current and former foster families, is that his father was a negligent, abusive alcoholic who worked for the local post office. When he wasn't at work, he often left Milton on his own, preferring to patronise many of Petersfield's local pubs rather than spend quality time with his son. He never beat Milton but frequently expressed his displeasure with his son's effeminate behavior, appearance, and preferences. Milton's aversion to meat is a direct consequence of his father's negligent behavior. He often fed his son raw or undercooked meat for supper, resulting in frequent bouts of sickness. Milton recalls many nights spent sick and vomiting while his father was out drinking. Forced to take care of himself, he often went to school ill and not having eaten since the night before, which inevitably had a negative effect on his schoolwork.

How were/are you in school? How are your grades? Do you enjoy school?

Milton showed promise in his younger years, but as his father's negligent behavior escalated over time, so the quality of his schoolwork gradually declined. He has always enjoyed school since it allowed him to make friends and get close to teachers and fellow students, but feels bad about his poor performance. He suffers a lack of confidence and low self-esteem as a result, and puts forth little effort to do well anymore. Being shuffled through the foster system over the course of the past four years has done him no favors in this area. Though he has not had to change schools, luckily, each change of household has affected his temperament and his schoolwork in a negative capacity. Just when things appear to be picking back up for him, and the quality of his grades seems to be on the rise, he is moved to another foster home, resulting in plummeting grades and an almost non-existant sense of morale. This is only one of the reasons why I am referring him to Highgrove. It will hopefully give him a sense of stability that has been evading him for most of his life. I believe that it will encourage him to do well at his coursework if he is not living under the constant threat of eviction from one home or another.

Do you participate in any extracurricular activities or belong to any after-school clubs?

Milton does not particularly enjoy sports or outdoor pursuits. He does have an interest in drama and theatre studies, however, and has participated in several school plays, often as an extra. I fear his motive for this is not always innocent, as he admits he has formed attachments, real or imagined, to some of the youths who have been in the plays with him over the years, motivating him to participate, but since it is something he enjoys I think it is an interest that should be encouraged in him. He has also expressed an interest in dance and music but has had no formal or professional training of any sort.

If you no longer reside with your biological family, please describe any previous homes as well as your current situation.

Currently, Milton resides with Mark and Laura Foster and their 14-year-old son Jack, and has done for the past year. His attachment to Laura in particular has made it impossible for him to remain in the home. Because Milton never had a mother, he has cleaved hard to many of his female foster mothers. When he is home, he refuses to leave Laura's side, seeking constant reassurance that she loves him. It has made it difficult for her to carry out duties of the home, and though I don't believe his fixation with her is dangerous, she has expressed to me that she fears for her health and safety at times. Milton makes her uncomfortable and there is nothing I can say to change her mind. Mark and Jack both feel similarly. Six months ago, Milton was found hoarding several of her personal possessions, including a silk nightgown, a gold necklace, and a pearl-handled hand mirror. That was when they first brought him in to me for diagnosis and treatment. Unfortunately, they don't believe our sessions have helped, as he has barely curbed his clingy behavior. When the items first went missing, they say, he denied any involvement, and since that time he has even stolen some of them back. He says that these items help him feel closer to Laura and that he enjoys holding them at night, making it easier for him to sleep. He claims he is not a thief but was too ashamed to ask to hold onto them, fearing he would be rejected or kicked out of the home like the previous ones he has lived in.

Before the Fosters, Milton lived with the Richmonds for two years, a lively couple with twin sons of the same age as well as a younger foster daughter. Milton exhibited some of the same behavior with Nancy, the mother, but was primarily interested in and attached to the twin boys, Samuel and Stephen. The Richmonds didn't mind Milton's eccentric behavior and were even heartened to see that he seemed such a good fit with the rest of family. However, they were appalled when Roger, the father, peeking in on the boys before bed one evening, found Milton pleasuring both twins at the same time. They found this behavior to be unacceptable, understandably, so they turned Milton back over to the foster system while promising to seek psychiatric help for their boys. Milton has told me that this behavior with the twins had gone on long before being discovered. Up until that time, he claims, he did a good job of hiding just how close he was to the two, knowing that it would be frowned upon by his foster parents and not wanting to upset them or be sent away.

Milton lived with his first foster family from age 12 to 13. Emily Clarkson was a young widow unable to have children of her own, and she accepted Milton with open arms after he was taken away from his biological father by the state. The school, suspicious of Milton's frequent illnesses in class and concerned about his poor performance, wondering if he was having troubles at home, sent one of their counselors out to the house only to find it in a state of filth and disarray. Milton was found sitting at the kitchen table eating beans out of a can, his father absent, surrounded by grime, trash, and stacks of unwashed dishes. A report was filed with Child Protection Services, who came out a day later and turned Milton over to the foster care system, as he had no local relatives he could stay with. He was quickly and easily transferred into the care of Ms. Clarkson and continued his schooling with little delay. He formed a quick, intense attachment to her, refusing to go anywhere without her except for school. Because Ms. Clarkson worked out of the home, this made things difficult. Milton would often cry when she declined to spend time with him in favor of getting work done or doing chores, and this disruptive behavior eventually wore her patience thin. Also, he refused to sleep anywhere but in her bed, a practise she found disturbing. While I believe she genuinely loved and cared for him, she got more than she bargained for with Milton and found she didn't have the strength or emotional reserves required to take care of him.

Do you have many/any friends? If so, please describe them.

Milton is a passive and quiet boy but has a decent handful of friends. He hasn't been able to successfully keep all of them due to his overwhelming dependency on those he feels closest to, but claims he has a few who have stuck by him over the years. The Fosters tell me they are good kids who do well in school and are generally well-behaved, but I'm not entirely sure they are the best influences on Milton, as they seem to gloss over or even indulge his dependent behavior. As he tells it, he tends to get along best with the outcasts and other drama kids. He says some of the kids at school find him annoying and want him to go away when he hangs around, but it doesn't seem to bother him too much as long as he has at least one friend he can rely on. Blessedly, no formal complaints have been made against him at school. He has had the most problems in his varying home environments, which leads me to believe that it would be best for him to get a fresh start in a home as specialised as yours. Milton does not want to leave his friends but acknowledges that the foster system has failed him and it may be time to try something new.

Are you sexually active? Are you aware of any gender preference, or preferences in intimate practices, activities or situations?

He is sexually active, yes. Though Milton has formed attachments to females in the past, it has never been a sexual thing for him. He seeks a surrogate mother for the one he never had. When it comes to romantic and sexual pursuits, Milton claims to only be interested in other young men. He looks to women for maternal affection, but no more. Aside from the Richmond twins, Milton has only been sexually involved with James, his best friend since he was 10. He claims they have always experimented with each other, and though his feelings for James are not just friendly but also romantic, the other young man does not share the sentiment. It is a point of sorrow for him, and though he is very attached to James, I believe part of him knows it is time to move on, another reason why he is not completely adverse to the prospect of Highgrove. He is tired of having his heart broken again and again. Milton and James share a special bond, but it will never be enough for him. I am afraid if this relationship continues, his sense of melancholy will worsen and we will be looking at a second diagnosis of depression.

Have you ever knowingly committed a crime? Were you caught and convicted? If convicted, what was your sentencing?

No, he has not.


__________________________________________________________________
Clinical Screening

Have you ever been diagnosed with any psychiatric ailments by a medical or psychiatric professional? If yes, please explain below.

I have diagnosed Milton with Dependent Personality Disorder, as he fits the criteria. He is susceptible to bouts of depression and anxiety, but not enough to warrant a diagnosis for either at this time.

Please describe any incidents associated with these ailments, such as antisocial behaviours, social or environmental difficulties, incidents of self harming, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts, substance abuse, etc.

Besides the many incidents in his past, which I have already outlined on this form, Milton continues to display fiercely dependent behavior, and has even started exhibiting some of it with me. He does not like to be alone and idealizes those he looks up to. His behavior with caretakers is meek and submissive; he prefers them to make his decisions for him and seeks only to please. He often seems incapable of thinking independently and looks to those closest to him to approve of his behavior. When he is not in the company of someone he depends upon, he seems to lose all sense of self and withdraws into his mind. He often doesn't know what to say or think when he isn't being guided or influenced by another, and is willing to change his mind or opinions if he feels he has displeased someone with his thoughts, ideas, or answers to questions. He is a gentle, kind boy, but very naive and incapable of being self-sufficient, something I hope you can help with before he finds himself in an abusive relationship even worse than the one he shared with his father.

Have you ever seen a licensed psychiatric professional, psychologist, or counsellor for these ailments? If yes, please list doctor(s) or counsellor(s) below:

Milton has been seeing me for the past six months.

Do you take any medications for any diagnosed psychiatric ailments? If yes, please list medication, dosage, and frequency of dosage below:

I do not have Milton on any medications. In his case, I believe that frequent, intensive therapy sessions - more than I am currently capable of providing - would be of greater benefit.

Have you ever been admitted to a short or long-term psychiatric facility as a result of these ailments or associated incidents?

Milton has never been admitted to a short or long-term psychiatric facility.

How do you feel these ailments affect your quality of life or your situation in life?

When I posed this question to Milton, he didn't know how to answer it. He can't remember ever being any different than how he is, but expresses regret that he has hurt others with his behaviors, especially since he doesn't know how to stop them. I believe Milton is a very sad boy whose quality of life will certainly not improve unless he receives the kind of specialised care Highgrove has to offer. He will never be able to live as a happy, healthy, self-sufficient, independent adult if he does not receive additional treatment. I believe I have done all I can for him and that the foster system no longer has anything to offer. If he continues to be passed around from household to household, his condition will only worsen. As I said before, Milton needs stability, as well as a family that won't easily give up on him. I am hoping Highgrove can be that family for him, providing the tools necessary to shape him into a fully-functioning member of society by the time he reaches adulthood.

If you could be cured of your ailments, what would your goals in life be?

Milton would like to eventually go on to be a nurse. He says that so many people have invested so much time in caring for him that he'd like to give something back. I have encouraged him in this goal. When one looks past Milton's disorder, one can see what an exceptional, bright young man he really is and the talent he is capable of bringing to the world.

How do you feel these goals would be best attained?

I believe this goal of Milton's would be best attained by receiving treatment at Highgrove and hopefully going on to university and a satisfying, independent life.

Why do you feel you are being referred to Highgrove, and by whom?

I am referring Milton to Highgrove due to his failure to flourish in several foster homes. The system is clearly not right for him and he needs more specialised care than an ordinary state run home can provide.

Psychological Evaluation
The Spoken, Representative Interview

Hello, and thank you for meeting with me today. Our interview today will be recorded for review later. I'm going to ask you a series of questions, and I'd like for you to answer as fully as you are able. I'd like to start by asking you how you're feeling today.

Patient Observation: The patient darts his eyes from side to side and laughs nervously, wrapping his arms around his torso and clasping his elbows.

Um, nervous, I guess. Maybe kind of hopeful too, because I'm told something's wrong with me and if that's true then I want to get better. I'm guessing that's what I'm here with you for, to find out if I can.

Okay. And how are you feeling about this opportunity to join our family at Highgrove?

Hopeful, like I already said... Is that right? I mean, I don't know. If that's what everyone feels is best for me I suppose I think it's best for me too. I've been in Petersfield my whole life and don't really want to leave, but I'll do what I'm told.

If you could alter one event in your life, what event do you think you would change or remove, and why?

I wish my mother had never died. I think that's why my dad was so sad, and why I'm so screwed up. I wouldn't be here if I'd just had a mother to love me. I've had foster mothers, of course, but not until I was 12, and of course they didn't want me after they realised I wasn't quite right in the head. I think my life would have been so different if she'd lived...

Patient Observation: Patient's eyes become tear-filled and he averts his gaze to the floor, sniffling.

If you had to describe yourself in only three words, what words would you choose and why?

Eager to please. I just want to make people happy, and I want them to love me. It's the only thing that really makes me feel good.

How do you feel currently about your life so far, and anything you may have done?

I don't feel very good about it. I could have had a worse life, I know, but it's hard for me to do things on my own and I feel bad about it because it hurts other people. I try to stay positive, but I've done so much damage, and I still really miss Samuel and Stephen. I feel so stupid that we got caught. I should have been more careful. I could have stayed there and been happy. Anyway, I already know I'm going to miss James a lot, and Laura, but they might be better off without me around.

What would you do if you found a stranger being attacked by another stranger, and why?

I...I suppose I'd run away and find someone who could help. I don't feel comfortable breaking up fights. I'd probably just get my ass beat if I tried. But I don't think I'd feel right not telling someone, so I'd try to get help without intervening directly.

What would you do if you were being threatened by a stranger, and why?

I'd give them whatever they wanted so they'd leave me alone. It's easier to do that than to fight. I can't stand up for myself all that well.

Have you ever deliberately harmed yourself, another, or animals in the past? If so, why do you think that was?

No, aside from thinking some really horrible things about myself sometimes.

And lastly, what do you hope to find at Highgrove, and how do you think this will help you to learn and grow?

I really don't know. I'd like to be normal, I guess, though I don't know what that means exactly. I do want to be a nurse someday, so I hope Highgrove can help me get there.

This concludes our interview for today. Thank you for filling out our application and speaking with me. We will contact you or your guardian shortly with our decision or recommendations.In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your day. Goodbye.

Therapy Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Milton Wenceslaus
    Therapist Name: Dr. Maxwell Rose
    Patient Observations: When he first arrived Milton seemed a little lost and unsure of where to sit. Eventually he settled on a seat and remained quiet Cecil sat next to him. He spoke casually with both Cecil and Reuben but since they weren't being disruptive or inapprorpiate I allowed it. Milton was actually one of the few residents in the session whose behavior did not need to be corrected. He seemed very nervous when answering his question, as if he may say the wrong thing. He relaxed as the session went on and was a very pleasant boy to have in the group.
    Therapy Report: The topic was feelings and the children were instructed to tell me how they felt. No specific topic was given because I wanted them to be honest. He said that he felt okay but a little overwhelmed. This was Milton's first day at Highgrove so it is understandable. He apologized for his answer, believing it to be a bad answer and then went on to say that he was nervous and a little excited. I told him there was nothing to apologize for and he relaxed. I asked if there was anything else he'd like to share but he declined.

    At the end of the session I spoke about honesty, trying to make the children understand that by being honest with their therapists and the staff that they stood a chance to leave Highgrove and live their life. Milton said nothing on the subject and left with the group when they were dismissed.
    Notes: As this was his first group and given the bumps it had I believe Milton handled it very well. It's too early to say much more on the subject but I look forward to seeing him in groups in the future.

Therapy Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Milton Wenceslaus
    Therapist Name: Dr. Gunner Bjorgen
    Patient Observations: Mr. Wenceslaus was quiet and polite, maintaining good psture throughout the session, though I feel this may have been in response to Mr. masterson being corrected over his sloppy posture. he did very well at going largely unnoticed by the group unless he was put directly on the spot, a behaviour that I feel may not be beneficial in his case.
    Therapy Report: When asked to introduce himself and state one thing that he misses from before Highgrove, mr. Wenceslaus responded that he misses his friends. He answered that a relationship is defined as two people caring for one another, when asked to. The answer was not contrived, but appeared genuine. When asked to define love, his definitions were mostly projected onto the wellbeing of those he claimed to love. He defined love as making others happy, and in turn being made happy by their happiness. When asked to elaborate on what love feels like, he remarked that it makes him feel safe and comfortable, as if he belongs somewhere.
    Notes: Mr. Wenceslaus needs to be brought outside of his comfort zone in order to force him to think for himself and consider his own person rather than rely on the opinions and perceptions of those around him. A complete lack of guidance during questoning or activities may force him to have to take control for his own ends, and may benefit him greatly in the future. An emphasis on self and removal of projections is greatly recommended.

    Therapist Name: Miranda Samedi
    Patient Observations: Milton appeared unenthusiastic as he entered the kitchen, although cheered up as he began to talk with Ninian, guiding the other boy when he became agitated at the idea of making cookies. He was very polite throughout the session, and was definitely the most active participant, if a little reserved. His relationship with Milton seems to be an entirely positive one, definitely one to be encouraged.
    Therapy Report: N/A.
    Notes: Milton is a charming young man, and presented no problems during the baking session.

Behavioural Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Milton Wenceslaus
    Reporting Staff Name: Alexander Lance
    Behavioural Observation: On the night of the 28th of January, Mr Westwood was found in the bed of his roommate, Mr Wenceslaus. The pair claimed Mr Wenceslaus had had a nightmare, and that Mr Westwood was simply comforting him. I do not believe this to be the case, however, at this time I have no evidence to support this belief. The two were cautioned, and Mr Westwood returned to his own bunk without incident.
    Measures Taken: No action by myself, however, I feel the boy's psychiatrists should reconsider their dorm assignments if this behaviour is repeated.
