Design a Psychological Assessment

Your Assessment will include

1) the client’s Social/Behavioral History,

2) Medical Evaluation,

3) Psychosocial Assessment,

4) Diagnosis

5) appropriate Treatment.

Please note: your “client” in this instance is an historic figure no longer living; therefore, your Psychological Assessment lies entirely in the realm of fiction. (As this is an historic figure, you may utilize additional {credible} sources for background information when creating your Assessment.) Finally, Objectivity is essential.

Please credit sources per APA format, and, use attached Rubric and course textbook (Chaps. 7 & 10) to complete Post. Chapters 7 & 10 are where students should look in your effort to “diagnose” Hitler.

(Rudolf) Hausler and (Reinhold) Hanisch, Dr. Edouard Bloch, August Kubizek and Samuel Morgenstern, his former fellow residents in the men’s hostel (homeless shelter), and his schoolmates in Linz were astonished by his career…which began in 1919. Not one of them would have considered anything like that possible. His former colleagues understood even less why the same person who had once gotten along with Jews especially well was now all of a sudden supposed to be a leading…antisemite.

…he was a physically weak eccentric who avoided regular work, became engrossed in strange theories about the creation of the world, and idolized his people. He was a “quarrelsome fellow” with a hot temper who always had to be right and during discussions talked until others were finished off.

What was most conspicuous about him was his mental rigidity, his inflexibility and inhibition, his fear of women, and his inability to be merry and have a good time with others. His admirer Kubizek said: ‘Being carefree and letting go…no, he could never do that.’ And: ‘He hated the typical Viennese from the bottom of his heart. He couldn’t even stand their mellifluous, really very melodious way of speaking. Above all, however, he hated the Viennese way of forever blundering along and living from one day to the next without a care in the world. Personally, he was entirely the opposite in that respect” (Hamann, 1999, p. 403).

The “client” is, of course, Adolf Hitler.

*August Kubizek and Rudolf Hausler were self-identified friends of Hitler. Kubizek met Hitler in 1903, Hausler in 1913. Both men were antisemitic (Hamann, 1999).

*Klara Hitler died from breast cancer in December 1907; his father, Alois, had died in 1903. Hitler at the age of 19 moved to Vienna, capital of Austria-Hungary. The year was 1908. Kubizek joined him and they shared a room in a boardinghouse. Famously, it was during this time that Hitler applied for admittance at Vienna’s Academy of Fine Arts. He was rejected for the second time (they had already rejected him in 1907). Too ashamed to admit this to Kubizek, Hitler moved away with notifying him. They would not speak again for 30 years after Hitler became the Fuhrher of Germany and Austria (Hamann, 1999).

Hitler could not collect the inheritance left him by his father until he reached his 25th birthday. But he could collect the interest. His older sister Angela convinced him to give that money to their younger sister, Paula. Because he would not work, Hitler lived for the next five (1908-1913) years in homeless shelters for men (Hamann, 1999).

*Reinhold Hanisch, antisemite, was a fellow resident in men’s shelter with Hitler. He was also Hitler’s business partner (Hanisch found customers to commission and buy Hitler’s paintings). The two became enemies when Hanisch tried to defraud Hitler (he took commissions for himself). Siegfried Loffner, a Jewish resident of the shelter and friend of Hitler, hauled Hanisch before the police on Hitler’s behalf (Hamann, 1999).

*Dr. Edward Bloch, Hitler family physician. Dr. Bloch was Jewish. He treated the young Adolf for colds, etc. He also treated Hitler’s mother, Klara, for breast cancer. When Hitler became Fuhrer (literally, Leader), he interceded on Dr. Bloch’s behalf. Bloch wanted to leave Austria, but was delayed by the Nazi government. He sent a letter to Hitler requesting his help. Miraculously, Hitler received the letter and immediately set out to help. Because of Hitler’s intervention, Dr. Bloch was permitted to sell his property at a fair price (and keep the money!). At this time, Jews emigrating from the Third Reich were not allowed to keep the proceeds of the sale of their property. It went directly to the Nazi government (Hamann, 1999).

Even more astonishing, until Dr. Bloch and his wife could emigrate, Hitler had them placed under the Gestapo’s protection. They emigrated to the United States in 1939 (Hamann, 1999). Unfortunately, Dr. Bloch’s credentials were not recognized in the US, so he could no longer practice medicine. He died a broken man in 1945 at the age of 73 (Hamann, 1999).

*Samuel Morgenstern was a Jewish glazier who commissioned paintings from Hitler between 1908 and 1913. When life became difficult for Jews living in the German Reich, Morgenstern reached out to Hitler just like Dr. Bloch. The letter never reached Hitler. A loyal customer to Hitler from 1908-1913, tragically, Morgenstern and his wife perished in the Holocaust (Hamann, 1999).
