Chapter 6 Case Study #2 (Steven)
Steve is a 19-year-old who withdrew from college after an incident when pulled all of the fire alarms in his dorm and campus police were called. The reason he gave for pulling the alarms was that, given the seriousness of fires and the damage they can cause, he wanted to make all of the alarms were working as they should. He had recently changed his major from engineering to philosophy, and spent long hours talking with friends about the nature of reality. He was convinced that his ideas were of great importance, stating frequently that he his knowledge was more extensive and advanced than that of his professors or other students in his classes,” and that he would soon “change the world” because of his ideas. He grew increasingly irritable and intolerant of any who disagreed with him and was angry that the campus police didn’t understand the need to test the fire alarms in the dorm. He also increased a number of high-risk behaviors drinking and engaging in sexual relations in a way that was unlike his previous history. His need for sleep has been decreasing; some nights he sleeps only a few hours at most.
He returned home after leaving campus. His parents report being very surprised by his extreme behavior and beliefs, stating that, although he did have problems with anxiety and low moods, he has never been in trouble or appeared so out of control. They are very concerned about him, and want to help in any way they can.
