Precipitants
The causes of Mr Bs anger episodes usually stems from his environment. Mr.
B gets extremely upset fast when confronted with very uncomfortable and
disorderly situations like when people are joking around too much so they
knock over things (e.g his drink), when people cant seem to understand that he
didnt like things and that they should stop doing it (e.g nickname-calling) and
when people try to be one step ahead of him (e.g at company competitions).
Hes very sensitive with the way his supervisors treat him and hed disagree
with them thats why he usually jumps from one job to another. He also does
not like it when his routines and the order of how he do things change. Hes
also sensitive to sounds thats why he had a disagreement with his neighbor
who was being loud in their apartment. Hes very affected whenever he seems
to think that his being unemployed is due to the fact that he cant get along with
people, a fact that his grandmother would tell him multiple times. His
frustrations are at work because when hes had a bad day at work, sometimes it
would lead to an argument with his grandmother.
.
Origins
Mr. Bs parental figure is his grandmother only. His father left them when hes
still in the womb while his mother died when he was young. He has no siblings
but he has elder cousins who he rarely saw. Some of them spent time in jail. He
was close with his uncle but he died three years ago due to a heart condition.
During his teen years, he didnt mention having any friends from his school
where he took special education classes. Since this age, he had a history of
talking back to his teachers, throwing things, and non-compliance. In fact, he
got suspended after getting into a fight in the lunchroom.
Mr. B had been prescribed stimulants during his childhood, anti-psychotic
drugs during his teen years, and recently a beta-blocker. Although he refused
previous referrals for counselling, he has never been psychiatrically
hospitalized.

Resources
Mr. B is very much eager to come to therapy because his supervisor told him
that it would help him get a job. Because of this, he partakes in role-playing
activities with the therapist to improve his interpersonal skills. Although there
are some reluctance with admitting his difficulty in anger control, he doesnt
seem to have an issue answering the therapists questions.

Obstacles
Mr. B doesnt like to be part of group therapies because he believes that his
business is not for everyone to hear. He also insists that all his supervisors
should treat everyone fairly. This is problematic because he doesnt take into
consideration that he has no control over other peoples attitudes.

Core Hypothesis
Mr. Bs firm belief that everyone should act according to how he wants and
how things are supposed to be achieved in his own order only are the reasons
why he occasionally gets temper outbursts when things dont go his way.
