2b: Give an example of a sentence or short paragraph in one Satir mode (other than Leveler) for the other two situations.
3: Give an example of verbal attack that you or someone close to you has experienced. (Possibly the same example as Lesson 2.) With the techniques you've learned in this class, would any of them have made that situation better? If you had it to do over, what would you have said, and how might it have happened instead?
4: Give two examples of statements with presuppositions used as verbal attacks. Write a brief conversation for each of them, starting with a deflection of the attack.
