2- Then, having understood the use of “your” defense mechanisms, come up with three different adolescent conflicts/challenges scenarios (i.e., describe 3 different scenarios) and then describe how the adolescent may use this defense mechanism to address these conflicts/challenges (i.e., how does the DM help the adolescent). An example of a conflict may be a divorce, peer rejection, confused sexuality/experience, etc.
