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: Um... I dunno. I've definitely been better...

Patient Observation: Patient shows signs of unease, looking around the room rather than making eye contact, fidgeting in his seat.

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

Resident: I didn't apply. Maybe my foster family did; I dunno. Things aren't going well. I overheard them talking about how, like, they can't handle me. I don't know why. I stopped listening at that point, but I think maybe I'm just not good enough in their eyes.

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

Resident: No.

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: Yeah, I have major depressive disorder. I'm always depressed. I don't seem to get better. I've been hospitalized a few times, yeah.

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: Well, I just feel like... hopeless. There is nothing I can do about anything, to fix things. And I can't sleep, and I can't really eat – I've lost a lot of weight, so now I look terrible, but food makes me feel ill. And... talking to people is, well, really hard. Doesn't matter who it is. Whenever I do, people tell me I should smile more, or something stupid, but they don't know anything. I can't just smile. God, if I could, I would, trust me. I wish, more than anything, that I could be happy like I used to.

Patient Observation: Ace sniffs and wipes at one eye, then goes back to staring at his hands as he talks.

I have tried to kill myself three times. None of them worked. Um. Obviously. Um. The first time, it was a week after the crash. I cut both wrists...

Patient Observation:He holds his arms out. The scar on his right wrist is straight and seems to have been deep. The other is shorter and jagged.

My father kept trying to yell at me, but when I didn't answer, he kicked the door open and started berating me... for bleeding on the floor, for being stupid, for being a drama queen, what-have-you. It was upsetting and harsh, but I hoped he would keep screaming, because every insult was another moment of blood loss. But he ripped off part of his shirt, grabbed my arms, and bandaged them with the fabric, and then he called for help. He was so drunk that night, I was surprised he could think straight enough to help. I woke up in the hospital, alone. Well, I mean, with no family there. Obviously there were nurses.

Patient Observation: He shakes his head abruptly, squeezing his eyes shut.

Then, I moved to foster care after my father lost custody of me. I wanted to go live with Ma's parents, but... my grandmother has heart trouble now, and she couldn't take me. But earlier this year, I went with David and Sandra Neely and another foster kid, Caroline, and then in February, I got really... bad... and I attempted again. This time, I was on medication for my depression, so I took all of that bottle, probably twenty something pills, with a half a bottle of whiskey that I stole from my David's liquor cabinet. That stuff is God-awful. I ended up dizzy, sleepy, weak, and, um, violently sick. I had to stay in the hospital for three weeks then, at least until they found a new medication that, well, made me less of a suicide risk. And Sandra told him to stop buying liquor. He didn't stop; he just hid it somewhere else. Took me a bit, but I found it.

Sandra watched me take my medicine every day, until about late July, when I started putting it under my tongue and spitting it back out when I got in my room. I hid the bottles under my mattress, got refills... On my birthday this year, I took all of it, with another bottle of that gross whiskey. It was worse that time, I think, because I don't remember it. And I did nothing but sleep, mostly, for about a week, and I felt terrible.

After that, I was hospitalized for a month, and then a few times, for a few days here and there, whenever they felt that I was getting too bad.

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

Resident: Myself, yes, all the time. I need to hurt, for some stupid reason. Not others. Not animals. I love animals.

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: The trouble was all with my father. He got drunk, he had drunk driving incidents, did stupid shit while drunk in public, all that. He lost his job because of it. He said hurtful things to me, and hit me. When he was sober, which was rare, he started kind of... not realizing I was even there.

I guess here, it's like I said: they don't want to take care of me, or can't, or whatever.

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

Resident: Um... I'm nice... but hopeless... that's two... uhh... I don't know. I can't describe myself. Or, maybe, I'm very loving and loyal, when I care about people. Well, and supposedly I'm... pretty, but I don't know.

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

Resident: Not really. It's hard to get close to people. I used to have friends, but we grew apart. I don't think they could really understand what was going on. I mean, who wants to hang out with a kid who just sits in the corner and stares and cries, anyway? I used to make fun of those kids.

Patient Observation: Ace sniffs again and puts one hand over his face.

I had a boyfriend, too. I didn't want him to be stuck with me. I told him to find someone better.

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

Resident: Well, my mother was my best friend, but she's gone now. I miss her so much, I can't even describe it. And I don't like talking about it, either.

Patient Observation: He raises his voice a bit on the last sentence, sounding decisive, as if to tell me not to ask him anything further on the matter.

I do talk to her parents fairly often, though. They... understand. She was theirs.

My father, I've told you about. I don't speak to him. Whenever I did, I just got upset. I do think he took her death hard, because he wasn't quite as mean before that, but then he just turned into a different person.

I don't have siblings, no. Just a foster one, Caroline. She's a lot younger – she's like, eight or something. She's been in the system like, her whole life. I don't even know what happened. But she's a cute kid. Other than that... no opinion.

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

Resident: Um...

Patient Observation: He starts to pick at his nails and he blushes.

Yes. Well, not like, actual sex, but I have, um, messed around... you know. I'm... a virgin, but not innocent. I prefer boys, and – wait, why are you asking this?

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

Resident: I grew up in Lisburn, not too far from here. My dad's from there originally, though he did move to the US for a while, got married, came back to care for his ailing mother when I was still a sea-monkey-looking fetus, and we never left. It was... all right. I had everything I needed or wanted, I guess. At least, when Ma was around, I did. We had a really nice house, and we did things as a family, and we were... normal. I don't really know how I feel about it. It's just where I'm from. I still go to school there, even though I live in Moira. Actually, thinking about it... I liked Lisburn better. More stuff to do.

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

Resident: School is hard for me. I don't really care about it. My grades are pretty bad. Sometimes I can't do it. I get so upset that I have to go home now and then; I can't bear to spend the rest of the day crying through it. Or I just leave class for a while, then go back whenever I feel a little better. At least my teachers kind of understand that. And no, I don't do anything after school, except curl up in a blanket at home.

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

Resident: Um... I don't know. I guess that if I can't die, I want to get better. I want the rest of my family to not have to worry about me. I... I don't know about... not if it's going to be like a hospital. If it is, then I'm not going.

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

Resident: I don't want life. I haven't done anything with it. I've... existed. I don't want to anymore. I have lost the person I felt the closest to. My father doesn't give a flying fuck about me; Hell, he even said once that he should have let me die. He was right. I think he was drunk, but he was still right. He should have.

Patient Observation: At this point Ace is crying again. He tries, I think, to add something, but then he just shakes his head, gets up, and leaves the room.

Throughout most of the interview, he spoke shakily and tearfully, but he really seemed to make an effort to tell everything. He was rattled, nervous, his hands shaking. He avoided eye contact most of the time, preferring to look at the wall or his hands.

Out Of Character Section

Is there anything your character isn't telling us? Do you have more information to add about your character that they would not tell the representative about? Please explain below:

Ace's therapist he has been seeing feels that one of Ace's main problems is the way he was brought up. He was the only one of three children Midori had that survived – there were two miscarriages. Ace would have been the eldest, though not by much. He doesn't even remember that this happened. Consequently, Midori lavished every bit of attention not paid to her job on her son. Paul, Ace's father, often accused her of being too much of a friend and not enough of a mother. Midori returned with telling Paul that he was a bully, that he shouldn't be jealous of his own child, and that she had a very good reason to be protective of him. The two fought almost constantly over how Ace should or should not be raised.

Another large problem Ace has is that he feels guilty for his mother's death. Ace was almost fourteen and had just started high school when he came down with a virus. He wanted his mother to stay home from work, to take care of him, and she almost did. But Paul told her no, absolutely not – she could not keep babying him like this. He had a stomach bug. It wasn't as if he were going to die from it, and he told her that going to work one day when Ace isn't at school wouldn't kill her.

Ace made it a point not to let Paul live that down. He also thought that he could have convinced her not to go and saved her, even though there was no way any of them knew that the commercial plane Midori was flying that day would crash.

Paul coped by turning to the bottle, while Ace sunk into a deep depression that never seemed to go away. Incidents in his home life thereafter only made it worse, as he was continuously hurt – figuratively and literally – by Paul's horrible coping strategy.

Ace feels alone in the world and is now convinced that no one can help him. His logic is if they could, he would be better by now.

His foster parents have tried to help him, but it hasn't worked. They've grown to care a great deal for him, but with another foster kid, and with them both working, they don't have the time and the resources to do much more than they have been. They've realized he needs more care than they can provide.

  • Ace is back! However, he's not quite ready to jump into the fray. Ace is a severe case but I'm concerned that he's not on the right path. Highgrove is a home for children who struggle in foster care or other homes because of their illness. They do take other kids who need help but that isn't their focus. I feel that if Ace's grandparents were willing to send him half way around the world they'd be focusing their attentions on properly staffed institutions and not group homes that employ psychiatrists. Ace wouldn't be receiving the help they seem to be seeking. I feel that if Ace were from England and, when his father lost custody, was put into the English system and sent to live in foster care or a state home he'd be perfect for Highgrove.

    Patient Observations: Fairly quiet and unobtrusive body language right up until questioning. Transitioning to hostile and angry.
    Therapy Report: Implicated by Ms. Williams in the matter of a joking conversation about suicide reputedly held amongst a number of the residents. When questioned as to why he was at Highgrove he answered that he was not wanted, and that he had tried to get away. He was further prompted by being asked if any of his own doings had brought him here, to which he exploded angrily and retorted that the question was implying guilt and that he was not guilty. Subconscious guilt issues are apparent.
    Notes: Medication recommended.

Therapy Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Ace Finn
    Therapist Name: Dr. Maxwell Rose
    Patient Observations: Ace entered the group room without a word and took a seat beside me, his hands in his lap. For most of the session he was quiet and kept to himself. However, after he'd been called on and gave his answers a sort of back and forth started with him and another resident, Keziah Biard. They were mouthing words to each other but stopped when I threatened to place them at the wall.
    Therapy Report: The topic was feelings and the children were instructed to tell me how they felt. No topic was given because I wanted them to be honest. Ace said he was tired at sad. When asked why he was sad he asked why it mattered and went on to say that he didn't want to talk about it. He added 'especially not in front of people.' Ace was asked to stay after the session and I asked him again why he was sad. He said "had a horrendous last few years" and that was why he was sad. I pressed a little more, asking him to describe his feelings in way aside from just sad. He told me how he felt like part of him was ripped off but was struggling to find anymore words. When I asked him to try talking about it more and putting his feelings into words he began to get very upset, saying that thinking about it only made it hurt more. I told him that if he smashed down the feelings he was having that they would hurt worse every time. I told him that it would have to hurt before it got better. He seemed to agree with this but I'm not convinced.

    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. Ace did not respond to the option to add anything to what he'd said but muttered something when he was asked to stay behind.
    Notes: Ace needs to be forced to confront the feelings on the death of his mother and how he carries his guilt. Further sessions with his therapist should focus on this and he should not be allowed to not talk about it. I've asked Ace to speak with his therapist or myself about his feelings on his mother's death every so often, hoping that the more he confronts it the easier it'll be to talk about. He's not dealing with it at all and so when the feelings come up he spirals. I recommend Ace begin taking an antidepressant as well.

    I also believe that Ace and Keziah's interactions be monitored closely and that they should be split up when possible. In a controlled environment I'd like to have both sit down and get to the root of the obvious issues the two have with each other.

Therapy Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Ace Finn
    Therapist Name:Dr. N. Zvarich
    Patient Observations: Quiet, composed, faced the floor when not addressed generally quiet and respectful throughout.
    Therapy Report: The topic was "why don't you belong here?" As many of the residents believe they have been wrongfully committed and desire to be released or to go home. The purpose of this topic was to gauge the level of self-awareness each student possess on their current mental state and to see if, during their stay at Highgrove, they have gathered any insight on their condition(s). Mr. Finn did not engage the disruptive conduct of Miss. St. John or Mr. Schram, he tried to comfort Mr. Brideston, who arrived at first brooding, and then beacame highly agitated near the session's end. He was both well behaved and compassionate during the session.

    Notes: Nothing new to report. To reiterate the sentiments of Dr's Bjorgen and Rose, Ace needs to confront his feelings of loneliness, subconscious guilt and depression concerning the loss of his mother.

Therapy Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Ace Finn
    Therapist Name: Dr. N. Zvarich
    Patient Observations: Stifling a laugh upon arrival, joined in minor disruption, left with hands shoved in pockets, clearly frustrated.
    Therapy Report: This was another open ended session, the topic wasWhat are your plans once you are no longer residents of Highgrove House, and Why. The purpose of this exercise was to get the residents thinking about about their futures and perhaps begin to take stock of their lives, to see the connects between where they are now, the cause and effect relationship of their actions and those outcomes, and where they wish to be once released from Highgrove house. The reactions were varying degrees of hostility, deflection, transference, and pessimism. None of them seemed willing or able to make the necessary connection between there actions, however small, and the resulting referral to Highgrove. They seemed extremely comfortable in the belief they are utterly powerless, completely disenfranchised victims of circumstance

    Mr. Finn's initial response was that he would likely not do anything, when asked to elaborate he claimed he did not need plans because "I'm only fifteen". when asked further he apologised and said he had never though about it. When Mr. MacKenna began his short speech, Ace agreed that they(Residents of Highgrove and youths in general) did not need to have plans. He asked a few questions of miss Lark during her answer about future plans.

    Notes: Mr. Finn is becoming minimally participatory in sessions, and his file notes are proving this, he needs to be challenged to function within a group session instead of hiding behind silence.

    Patient Observations: Ace seemed to be very shy, and showed pain and sympathy for Keziah’s story. He shared a quote from To Kill A Mockingbird, one which reminded him of his mother.
    Therapy Report: This was a group session aimed to discuss the children’s favorite books, and to discuss what made these books special to each child.
    Notes: Ace seemed to be very quiet and well mannered, and was pleasant in the session.

Therapy Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Ace Finn
    Therapist Name: Dr. Maxwell Rose
    Patient Observations: Ace entered the room with his arms folded tightly over himself and quickly took the open seat beside me. When one of the other residents greeted the group Ace was the only to respond, waving back and saying 'hey'. Ace was uncomfortable through most of the session, I suspect due to the nature of the topic, but he did speak at length when questioned. In fact he was the only one to give an in depth answer and one of the few who did not need to be asked to expand on their answer. He was soft spoken for the rest of the session and as the group began to speak over each other I only caught bits of what Ace said. He was dismissed with the rest of the group.
    Therapy Report: The topic today was family and while I had not concrete plan, I was interested in the reactions of the residents to the subject. It was a sensitive subject for them all. When Ace was asked to define family he was the only one to entertain the concept that family is more than a blood relation. He said that you can choose who you call family, be they actual relatives or close friends. I was pleasantly surprised by Ace's response to the question. Given his issues with his mother and his suicidal tendencies I had expected a more grim answer. Ace has made some progress with me so I hope that his outlook on family and friends will aid him in his recovery. When asked if he had anyone in his life he'd consider to be family he said no. This also surprised me given to optimism of his answer. It sounded like he was speaking from experience. I asked if he had anyone he was close to and he said that Nate (I assume Nathaniel Schram) were best friends.

    As I came around to the end of questioning the topic turned to why the kids were there. I asked by show of hands who would prefer to go back to their old life or stay at Highgrove. Ace raised his had to go back to his old life but if he gave a reason, I did not hear it over the others talking.
    Notes: Future therapies should still focus on his mother but I believe that Ace is making progress. His answers to the questions tell me that he is capable of moving on from the tragedies and finding a new group to call family.

Therapy Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Ace Finn
    Therapist Name: Dr. Matthias Savage
    Patient Observations: Ace seemed nervous entering the session. He seemed a bit distracted in the beginning. After initial questioning he became emotional, and defensive, but ultimately cooperative.
    Therapy Report: As this was the first session with Mr. Finn and myself, I began by asking him how he was settling into Highgrove. I also asked him how he was getting along with his peers. He replied that he was having trouble sleeping and that he’d made a friend. He explained that he hadn’t slept properly since his mother’s death. I asked Ace to tell me about his mother. His response was both emotional and defensive: "What? I... why? Are you fucking kidding me?"... "I don't... I don't even know you! Why--?"

    After explaining to Ace that talking about his mother would be a positive step in dealing with his depression, as opposed to his failed suicide attempts, he agreed to give it a try. I suggested that he keep a journal and he agreed to write things in his journal that he would allow me to see, while maintaining some privacy.
    Notes: Ace needs to deal with his feelings of guilt and grief in regards to his mother, that much is obvious. I believe that I am on the road to developing a trust with him that may make the therapy process a bit easier.

    Resident Name: Ace Finn
    Therapist Name: Dr. Matthias Savage
    Patient Observations:Ace entered the session seemingly in deep thought. He also seemed disappointed that I was running the group session.
    Therapy Report: The topic of the session was regret. My intent was to ask each resident to disclose something they have done that they regret. The majority of the residents in attendance were dismayed by the topic of discussion. When I asked him what he’d done that he regretted his response was: “I…regret…Not making her stay home…because…I…” This, of course, was in regards to his mother.
    Notes:Ace’s attempt to verbalize his regret about his mother is a positive step towards him dealing with issues. I will continue to work with him in subsequent individual sessions.

Therapy Report

__________________________________________________________________

    Resident Name: Ace Finn
    Therapist Name:Dr. N. Zvarich
    Patient Observations: Arrived on time, smiled at facilitator(insincere response)smirked when Mr. Masterson entered, was quiet and compliant during the session, seemed unable and unwilling to discuss the topic further.
    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 moved into the subset of Power and control in Relationships through a discussion started by Mr. Masterson and Miss Bryne.
    Ace was not willing or able to articulate much in session, his replies reflected this, when Bryne and Masterson began to disagree he turned his attention to Mr. Westwood sharing a smile and obviously flirting. He stated once the session touched on relationship, "I think in a good relationship, there isn't... well, a power struggle. Like, I think people, friends or otherwise, should coexist more than fight, I guess." He had nothing further to offer to the session.

    Notes: Mr. Finn is becoming more participatory in sessions, and his file notes are proving this. Though he needs to be challenged to function within a group session instead of hiding behind confusion, and considering the note found, his relationships with other male residents should be monitored for sexual activity which is strictly prohibited for residents.
