1). Summarize the limitations of defense mechanisms.

A: In the short-term, defense mechanisms may cause an individual's mood to be lifted and allow one to endure through a difficult time. However, these mechanisms do not make the upsetting emotions disappear. Instead, they tend to mask the unwanted feelings.

2). Describe three strategies you can us to manage your emotions in a positive way.

A: You can talk with someone you trust as a way to positively make sense of what you are feeling. Activities such as exercising, construction, or playing a sport are also positive means to manage your emotions. You can also manage your emotions in creative means, such as by singing, playing a musical instrument, or painting.
