How to write your story Rules for writing stories Scoring rubric Checklist for the assignment. Use this to make sure you have all the parts. Please use this to make sure you have included all the content. I’ve written samples to get you started. Don’t include the definitions. I’ve added them to help you understand the story. Definition: A defense mechanism is used to reduce anxiety. You could choose any one for your example. I chose reaction formation. Reaction formation happens when you behave in the opposite way to how you feel. Story: The key point is defense mechanism and I chose reaction formation. When I was in third grade, I had a crush on Bethany, the girl who sat across from me in third grade. I was afraid to tell her how I really felt about her. It was too scary to do so. To reduce my anxiety, every time we were on the playground, I would chase and tease her but I never told her how I really felt. This is a story bout the defense mechanism reaction formation because I was acting toward Bethany the opposite of how I felt. Definition: Delusion is a symptom of schizophrenia as it’s used in the Myers text so your example has to say the person is suffering from it or a psychotic disorder. It is a false belief system — the person has a belief system that isn’t consistent with reality. Story: The key point is delusion. Bill, who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia, believes the white van he sees parked across the street from his house is really a CIA van and the people inside are recording his every move. In truth, the white van belongs to his neighbor Amir. Amir owns a grocery story in town and has never worked for the CIA. He uses his van for his grocery business. It has never been used by the CIA. When the van is parked in Bill’s neighborhood, there is never anyone inside. This is a story about a delusion because Bill believes the white van belongs to the CIA who is spying on him, when in fact, it belongs to his neighbor Amir who is not a CIA agent and the van is empty. Definition: Transference is a component of psychoanalytic therapy. In transference the patient reacts to the therapist in the same way they reacted as a child to the parent of the same sex. In the text, Myers talks about transferring feelings. Story: The key point is transference. Destiny is very angry at their father because he was always putting her down and telling her she is not good enough. He would tell her she’ll never be successful in life and never be able to find a good mate. This has caused her a lot of problems so she decides to seek help from a therapist. Soon after starting therapy, she realizes that her therapist looks a lot like her father and is a male. She becomes progressively angry with the therapist because he reminds her of her father. This is a story about transference because Destiny is transferring the anger she had towards their father to her therapist.
