They may feel disoriented, unsettled and even anxious if they cannot finish a game or fantasy play. Reich& Zaurta (2010) suggested children use different coping mechanisms to reduce their anxiety. Some showing challenging behaviour when others may carry on playing and ignore the instructions they have been given. However, in order to help these children, practitioners must understand the children’s point of view and to know children use those coping behaviour because they are unable to tolerate their emotions, therefore, practitioners should help the children to manage their emotions in order to be more cooperative with transitions.
Anger in a business setting can cause one to act inappropriately or unwisely by blowing an incident out of proportion and possibly irrevocably damaging a career.

Goleman asserts the body’s chemical reaction to stressful situations, relating back to our ancient ancestors, is the reason for this difficulty. The introduction of hormones into the body is not a gradual elevation, but a quick release relating back to our basic fight or flight response to environmental dangers. Every day, hormones are incrementally released into the body with each passing taxing stressful episode until a level is reached that triggers anger. He offers two weapons against anger outbursts. The first is method is to recognize, as early as possible, what is triggering the anger. This disruption of the anger
In addition, children’s play holds significant therapeutic value in providing a safe, protective environment in a space where children can recreate themselves and self-cure” (Campbell et al., 2010). The strongest therapeutic tool used in this process is the child’s innate drive to self-actualize.
Cerangolu (2010) found that video games could enhance the therapeutic experience. They could help facilitate the therapeutic relationship as young people may be more willing to relate to a therapist that is ready to engage and understand their normal way of playing. Also sitting side by side rather than at the conventional “ten to two” setting also may make the young person relax. How the game is played can also reveal the young person cognitive style.

Client was able to reflect the right feelings using her body language and facial features during the game. Client was able to find a suitable solution for her feelings of frustration working in a group by saying, "Next time we will do better."

When I began examining specific cross-cultural differences in psychological processes, a particular example that resonated heavily and constantly in my head came from the original article called: Cultural and Educational Influences on Pain of Childbirth by Dr. Matisyohu Weisenberg and Zahava Caspi. In this study the authors examined the effects that educational history and differing sociocultural families of origin have on communicated ratings of pain and specific pain behavior prevalent during childbirth (Weisenberg et al., 1989). On a more elementary level, the authors investigated the disparities in how people verbally and physically react to pain prevalent during childbirth based upon differences in cultural and educational influences.
Some of the other concept that is relevant in the assessment is the concept of “Positive Punishment” and “Negative Punishment”. The “Positive Punishment” looks at interdicting a painful stimulus to reduce the likelihood of an undesired behaviour being preformed. In contrast, “Negative Punishment” is removing a pleasurable stimulus to reduce the likelihood of an undesired behaviour being preformed. Referring to the case, Esther uses Negative Punishment in which she takes away playing hockey, meanwhile Esther should be using a positive punishment when the negative behaviour occurs resulting in the child to become more applied rather than withdrawn.
