Diagnosis
The patient, Holden Caulfield is experiencing what I presume to be Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD. Holden is going through a lot of difficult situations in his life that he got him a little mislead, such as failing almost all his classes, trouble with his roommate, and leaving his school altogether. The situations Holden is being put through aren’t easy for him and cause him a lot of stress that changes the way that he acts, and feels. Caulfield is experiencing flashbacks, poor relationships, self-destructive behavior, and hopelessness about the future, trouble sleeping, memory problems, trouble concentrating, and efforts to avoid thinking or talking about his trauma. He is emotionally unstable, irritable, angry, shameful, guilty, easily startled or frightened, and dissatisfied with activities he once enjoyed. A thorough analysis has taken place that has proven that Holden Caulfield could perhaps have the predicted diagnosis. The treatment I am going to plan out for Holden is helpful for mainly his psychological problems. First and most important I am planning to have individual therapy with Holden to establish how he is to learn to overcome his problems. If I am not able to accomplish and reinforce this family help will be needed. The second thing to help Holden get back in normality would be to reenroll him in school. It doesn’t matter if he goes back to Pency as long as he is fully recovered. Reenrollment in school could help with his relationships as well. The next treatment method would be to repair his broken or lost relationships. It seems he’s had so many memories of different people, but not a healthy relationship with these people. Rebuilding them would be very good for Holden, especially seeing and talking to Jane Gallagher. Next for treatment is anger management. Holden also experiences anger with his stress.…...

...faith, music proves: We are the same.” Folk and rap music are both very popular genres and each has a considerable amount of fans. Folk and rap music have been very popular for years and are both loved and respected all types of people. Music lovers everywhere find similarities and differences between their favorite genres, which help listeners everywhere realize that all types of music have the same motive: to express opinions about certain topics, proclaim their emotion, and entertain their listeners. Both rap and folk genres create a catchy rhythm to draw their listeners in and to keep them interested. Folk and raps are spoken word pieces and poetry set to a certain rhythm that makes a song exciting, likeable, and memorable. Catchy beats in a song help for the lyrics to flow smoothly, the fans to fall in love with and remember, and newcomers to become interested and involved. Raps and folk songs without rhythm or a beat wouldn’t be a piece of art at all, but a mess of words thrown together with no groove. Although the beats within rap and folk songs are very different, being that raps include beats made by a computer program, and folk beats are typically made with drums or guitars, each genre require a beat to set the mood for their songs. Folk and rap genres are similar in the fact that although their styles of music considered very different, they both need background music to complete a song. Music from the rap genre, as previously mentioned, use......

Rap vs. Country

...In Denise Noe’s article on the similarities and differences between country-and-western and rap music, she points out and explains the different aspects of each genre. Both types of genres have a couple similarities and differences between them, for example, both country-and-western and rap songs are more based upon a personal story and what the artist has seen or experienced. On the other hand, country-and-western music is more stereotyped towards southern rednecks while rap music is more based upon black people within urban areas. It can be said through the different stereotypes that rap music is more based upon drugs and violence, while country music is more highly presented as having sex and getting a lot of money. The purpose of this article was to inform people about how two completely different genres of music can actually have some similarities to go along with them. This article was intended for everyone who listens to rap and country music to get a better understanding of how they can be related. I thought that the introduction and thesis caught my attention and made me want to read more to find out more about the similarities and differences of two totally opposite genres of music. It can be said that country-and-western and rap songs are the most popular music around today. I think that people enjoy these two genres for the message that is brought out through the lyrics of the song and not for the rhythm or the beat. Music is constantly teaching us something......

Rap Music

..."violent" hip-hop music. Hip-hop is like a strong tornado that constantly sweeps us up and spits us back out. But whom it's sweeping up are the ones who cannot handle the fall once they are thrown back out. Although rap and hip-hop music can be a force for good, they can also have an extremely negative impact on the attitudes and behaviors of teenagers. Teenagers are a target towards the marketers of rap and hip-hop. They are always influenced by the media and still trying to find their identity. The marketers find it easy to market towards teenagers because they are not so sure of who they are yet, which makes it easier to influence them. Rap and hip-hop music also provide teens with a sense of belonging. For example, teenagers see the Mercedes, models, and jewelry in rap and hip-hop music videos. They feel that if they spend their money to buy that stuff, they can be famous and get all the girls just like the people in the videos. In some low-income areas, some youth, particularly black males, are growing up with limited opportunities. Some of them have no important male role model in their lives, so they look up to a rap or hip-hop artist. When a person looks up to or is influenced by a role model, they tend to do the things that person does. The teenagers who look up to rap and hip-hop artists are likely to do what they do. This includes their actions, ideas, the way they live, dress and act towards others....

The last three more pertain to the beats and background music. Rap is very important to many people not only is it their way of life, but it is also one of their emotional outlets. Hip hop started to rise in popularity in the late 1960’s in the Bronx of New York. It was said to be started in clubs and at block parties when Dj’s started to break down and loop percussion breaks of popular disco songs, but they also used funk and souls songs. At this time rappers were predominantly African Americans and Puerto Ricans. One of the first Dj’s was Dj Kool Herc.

Country vs Rap

...Casto 1 Alexandra Casto English 0803 Fred Nolen 27 Feb. 2015 Compare and/or contrast essay Country vs. Rap Country music and rap music are two totally different musical genres. Despite their Musical differences^ there are some similarities in the concerts and shows the artists put on. There are also many differences between the two. Some of those differences include, the types of venues, the musical instruments, and the difference in shows and performances. The majority of country artists are Caucasian and the majority of rap artists are African American, so they bring different varieties of crowds. Over the years, the majority of most rap concerts are held at indoor venues such as basketball stadiums, indoor theaters, or hockey arenas. Some country concerts are held inside but most of the time are held outside. Another thing, many county artists perform at fairs and carnivals during the summer. The Jefferson County, TN fair has a country artist come every summer and preform. Before a country artist puts on a concert, it’s typical to have people in the parking lot tailgating and barbecuing before the show. However, at a rap concert most of the people just arrive a few minutes before the show actually starts. Additionally, more variances consist of musical instruments. Usually the only thing found at a rap concert is a DJ on stage spinning records. Although, at a country concert there is huge variety of musical instruments being used......

Rap vs. Country Music

...Country vs. Rap music “I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music.” Said by the famous Billy Joel. No matter what music you enjoy it also does not make a difference. There are many different genres, but two that seem to be the complete opposite are country and rap. Yes, country and rap are on two completely different ends of the spectrum lyrics and message wise, but they both do a great job at portraying a story or getting you excited about something. If music can do one thing best it is that it can tell a story. Musicians and writers spend tons of time on the songs that they produce and some have so much feeling into it that people can really relate. Whether it is rap or country they both can make a story out of their lyrics. Now just because I say they make a story doesn’t mean it is some fairytale story where everyone lives happily ever after. I have heard my fair share of country and rap music and both can have some songs that can make someone want to weep. Those are the type of stories people can relate to. When just a song that you heard on the radio can make you sad or make you happy you know it’s a good song. That’s what these two type of genres have in common. Both kinds poor their hearts into their music and can make you feel emotions that you don’t even feel in your every day life. Now that’s something to sing about! In......

Classical and Rap Music

...Compare and Contrast Essay: Classical and Rap Music Kristin Conway COM/155 - UNIVERSITY COMPOSITION AND COMMUNICATION I March 15, 2014 Instructor: Kathleen Case In contrary to common thought, classical and rap music have as many similarities as they do differences. The sound may be completely different, but there is a way to show emotion that will affect the listeners. For example, they both have ways to bring emotion and feeling into both performance and their audience’s effectiveness. Classical has an effect on the listeners that makes them cry, laugh and be happy. Rap music has an effect on a person that makes them get up and dance to the beat of the song. Classical and rap music are different in many ways but are also the same, especially in musical influences, musical evolution, and the musician’s techniques. Classical music is the first type of music performed. Classical music started in the year 1150, with the development of Medieval music, where according to Naxos.com, where 1“The earliest written secular music dates from the 12th century troubadours (in the form of virelais, estampies, ballades, etc.), but most notated manuscripts emanate from places of learning usually connected with the church, and therefore inevitably have a religious basis. Gregorian chant and plainsong developed during the 11th and 13th centuries into organum (example: two or three lines moving simultaneously but independently, almost inadvertently representing the......

Music and it’s entrepreneurs affecting the lives and actions of society. Is this a good thing? Most would say yes. Can it be manipulated to carry a destructive outcome? Many, thinking of such variations as rap, would say yes. Does rap steer the young and easily impressionable to violent tendencies? This is a matter of current controversy that worries numerous parents, authorities, and even youths. Is rap a violence-inducing demon, persuading inner-city teenagers to hurt, kill and steal in the name of one’s race or social class or is it a preaching promoting such ideals as honor, respect and unity? With the growing popularity of rap music through such means as music television, so too has its influence on society and the concern of skeptics grown. It has become evident that rap, once viewed as a passing fad, has laid impenetrable roots in society, both Black and White. Nearly three-quarters of rap music is sold not to Black, but White teens. What values, if any, are the worlds teenagers deriving from this music?...

Rap Music

...plethoric symbol of outrage. Youth in the Bronx utilized hip hop to express their rage at the world and their attitude about life. This fury burning behind hip hop and rap has caused some controversy in today’s society. “Angry voices from inner city American 'hoods, boasting of criminal license and sexual conquests, remain the most produced hip-hop music by the major record companies today” (Morgan, Hip Hop Matters: Politics, Pop Culture, and the Struggle for the Soul of a Movement). This kind of encouragement for criminal behavior by music artists has greatly influenced the youth. This criminal side of hip hop is also the angle that older scholars see. Older scholars have lost hope in the younger generation and view the boiling hip hop culture as a disaster waiting to happen. S. Craig Watkins wrote a novel entitled “Hip Hop Matters”, which appeals to young scholars but is directed more at older scholars, in order to expose the positive and negatives of the hip hop culture and how each aspect weighs on society. He also hoped that his ideas would coalesce the rough edges between the younger generation and older generation that have grown within the core of hip hop. Watkins reveals the negatives of hip hop in a euphemistic light, but author Bill Piekarski shows the rough edges of hip hop culture and rap. "Rap falls into six primary categories: 'gangsta', which focuses on murder, money, and mayhem; apolitical pop, which features a danceable beat and easygoing lyrics;......

Jazz and Rap

...Jazz and Rap What is known today as “pop” or popular music evolved in American society at the end of 19th centry. Pop music, which accounts for the majority of the music, is a mix of many different styles of music, such as jazz and rap. Although jazz and rap originate from two different groups of people, the African-American and South African, they are both musical art forms and related to African people. However, there are some obvious differences, which are reflected in instruments, musical styles and effects on the audience. First of all, different instruments have different effects on jazz and rap. Considering many genres of jazz, many instruments are used, such as piano, violin and guitar. “Meanwhile, the central instruments remained central, with the exception of the clarinet, and new approaches developed for the trombone, saxophone, piano, guitar, string bass, and drums”(Kernfeld 167). On the other hand, rap has no specific instruments to be used. Instead, making vocal imitations of instruments or body beat, which have the same effects as a drum, is the core of rap music. In addition, musical styles differ between jazz and rap. Heavy rhythms characterize the free-style poetry of rap. “Rhythm is such a key element to making a song sound great, the rhythm is actually where the lyrics begin for many artists-the rhythm is the first thing they come up with, before they even have words for the song”(Edwards p113-116) Moreover, the free-style rap is full of......

Gangster Rap

...Ryan Boeh Music apparition American gangster Rap is a popular type of music in today's society, but it didn't just come to be. In the 1970's rap emerged from other types of music to become what it is today. Rap is influenced and inspired by other types of music. Its influences are closely related to each other. Rap music has derived from various types of music. In a world in which people are constantly confronted with violent acts such as rape, assault, murder, school shootings and other violence's, society is eager and anxious to find and remove all causes of these cultural ills. All the blame can not be put on one particular thing but a heavier degree of blame can be put on one thing. Some of the violent acts listed above are expressed through music. Gangster rap, which followed rap music, developed in the 1980's. Though the immaturity and lack of teaching morals has an impact on how we view and take in things, the context of gangster rap presents a negative image for people in society. Rap music has derived from other music categories. One of the first musical influences on rap music is hip hop. Hip hop is comprised of graffiti, break dancing, attitude and the dress of the people who listened to it. The start of hip hop, along with rap, can be located in the Bronx of New York. There were three major events that occurred in the Bronx that contributed to the hip hop subculture. The first event was the building of an expressway through the Bronx. This plan was......
