Alfie closed his eyes and took several deep breaths. He was trying to ignore the sounds of the crowd, but even he had to admit that it was hard not to notice the tension in the stadium. He could feel 50,000 sets of eyes burning through his skin—this crowd expected perfection from him. He took another breath and opened his eyes, setting his sights on the soccer ball resting peacefully in the grass. One shot, just one last shot, between his team and the championship. He didn’t look up at the goalie, who was jumping nervously on the goal line just a few yards away. Afterward, he would swear he didn’t remember anything between the referee’s whistle and the thunderous roar of the crowd.
Which of the following conclusions is BEST supported by the passage?
Directions: Read the question, passage, or figure carefully, and choose the best answer.
Medical professionals not only have to handle physical medical emergencies; they also have to be prepared to manage behavioral emergencies. Behavioral emergencies occur when a person’s behavior—an observable response to the environment—is unreasonable to the point that it disrupts normal, everyday activities. Extreme cases of a behavioral emergency may result when someone’s behavior is creating a danger to themselves or others. Chronic cases of extreme behavioral emergencies may eventually be classified as a mental disorder. Psychological and behavioral effects can result from any number of illnesses; they can also be the result of a chemical imbalance, genetic disorder, or psychological disturbance. Some people who have serious mental disorders are at risk for increased incidents of behavioral emergencies because their behavioral patterns are typically impaired or disrupted. Consequently, medical professionals must be trained in crisis management to deal with behavioral emergencies that may increase the possibility of self-harm or interpersonal conflict. While medical practitioners must be trained for emergency situations that demand physical restraint, extreme cases of behavioral emergency may be directed to police for appropriate support.
