III. Background Information


A. Family Background
Bill is the eldest of the three siblings with a sister, age 18, and a younger brother
age 13. He was raised in a middle-class family. He was born in Cagayan de Oro City on
November 19, 1994. His father worked away across country as a seaman. Throughout
school age, due to nature of work, Bill only had little communication with his father, which
they would only communicate through calls. His father would leave for 12 months of work
and stays 3 months in home. As a child, Bill suffered from asthma, thus his mother was the
one providing comfort and health care. His mother is also the one providing his needs for
school and tutors him in his academic aspects.
Bill grew up in a community in a subdivision, and never had any friend in their
place nearby so he frequently stayed at their home and spent most of his time arranging
and playing with his toy cars. He was also fascinated by dinosaurs and watches programs
that involved such. Bill reported, when he went to his first day of grade school class he felt
very confused and cried almost all day because he felt that he was so scared he reportedly
said that his classroom was in the third floor of the building and thinking that the building
itself might collapse. Throughout that day her mother stayed at their classroom to comfort
him. On his elementary, Bill made several friends and classmates. Furthermore, he enjoyed
watching music entertainment programs and engaged himself in drawing and piano.
When Bill turned 16 his family had transferred to Surigao del Sur in a rural area,
because his father had decided to put up business. On this period Bill had hard time coping-
up with adjustments due to transitional changes from places. He reportedly said that he
would cry every night by himself, because he was sometimes bullied by his schoolmates
by his skin color. He said further that in his school, although it has no strict implementations
on school uniform Bills mother always insisted him to wear a complete uniform, Bill
would sometimes feel embarrassed and so he secretly changes his cloths before going to
school. Bill stated that this was the first time he had disobeyed his mother. On his third
year, one incident had happened on his right ear, he had experienced a disease that needed
surgery. After the operation he said that, his classmates would bully him from his surgical
stitches. Throughout his high school he had entered various activities such as basketball,
editing, trainings and seminars.
When he turned to college, Bill ended up studying his unfavorable course. He
reportedly said that he wanted to show his obedience by conforming himself from her
mothers decision. On his first year at college, although he had another hard time adjusting
himself to his course, Bill had shown his motivation to impress his mother. On his third
year, he said that he felt uncomfortable because his grades were dropping and he felt that
he was failing his promise from his mother. At one point, because of displeasing disposition
he drank one bottle of Hydrochloric acid. His mother had observed that he became slimmer
and asked him if he had any problems. Bill decided to tell her the truth about his course
and in that he does not desire it. His mother granted what he had requested and shifted.

B. Past Medical History

When Bill had turned a year old he was diagnosed with Asthma. Her mother
stated that he was frequently hospitalized due to the disease, this lasted until he had
turned 8. When Bill was 14, he had surgery performed in his right ear due to an
infection of preauricular pit which was performed with 12 stitches. When he
returned school he reportedly said that he was sometimes bullied by his classmates
due to stitches. His recent physical examination took place on September 12, 2015
and his general health was good. His developmental milestones were normal.

hand frequently by tapping his pen to his chair.

VI. Recommendations

According to the reviewed results, He is experiencing difficulties with changes yet


he wanted to explore different approaches to his actions thus this would be resolve by
managing his stress through planning his own actions perhaps, it would be best for him to
list down his planed actions.
It would be beneficial for him to talk about various coping skills and how each
may better apply given his feelings and circumstances. Also, helping Bill identify
preceding events to conflicts and how conflicts can be resolved in a positive way may help
him gain control over his environment.
He could improve his quantitative reasoning by engaging himself with simple
mathematical problems. Some type of challenge might help by practicing operations
without using any utilities such as calculator. To improve his verbal reasoning it is
recommended that he could engage himself in different opportunity to practice decoding
through reading. This includes not only various book genres, but also magazine articles,
newspapers or novels.
According to the reviewed evidence from the results and interpretation of the tests. Bill is
having a low total score of emotional quotient. In the aspect of Intrapersonal skills in Baron
EQ, Bill should lessen his effort to compare himself with others. As a college student, he
might come to a point when his academic grades will be the basis of his ability wherein he
puts himself to compare his scores with others because it was indicated on his MPD that
Bill is competitive. Thus he should be aware of his feelings and emotion, what might cause
it and what could trigger it. Thus he should also try to assert himself little by little starting
from himself for example he might want to buy something for himself, then he should
consider the option.
The Interpersonal scales for Bill also scored low, in which Bill should try to develop
a simple progressive skill in establishing socialization with others and then observe people
through the way he approaches them. Bill could also try to evaluate his friends.
