The first stage is “The telling of the significant life story by the person for whom the definitional ceremony is for.” In this stage, the care-seeker shares the story that they wish to share with the outsider witnesses acting as an audience. The outsider witnesses actively listen so as to fully engage in the upcoming response. After the care-seeker has shared their significant life story, the next stage is “The retelling of the story by the people invited to be outsider witnesses.” With the roles reversed, the outsider witnesses repeat the story that they heard in their own words. Outsider witnesses engage one another in conversations about the expressions of the telling they were drawn to, about the images that these expressions evoked, and about the personal experiences that resonated with these expressions, and about their sense of how their lives have been touched by the

These phrases summarize the principles associated with AA. Participants for this study were asked to interpret several of these phrases including “First things First”, “Live and let live”, “Fake it till you make it”, “Play it through”, and “One day at a time”. Many respondents indicated that “first things first” means prioritizing sobriety and only doing only one thing at a time. Next, many interpret “Live and let live” to mean that one should focus on themselves and accept others as they are. These phrases were exemplified throughout the meeting I went to because many members insinuated that sobriety is their number one priority.
During the Socratic Seminar, I actively listened to the claims being said and gave my input when I felt I had enough evidence to support an argument that I felt should be put out there. I also had my study guides, the two journals, “Dover Beach” poem and TP-CASTT, Fahrenheit 451 book, “Where Is Our Dover Beach?” article, and a paper with quotes and facts I gathered that related to the two topics. I used these resources throughout the seminar as references and evidence. An example of this was when I gave my claim that fitting into society can seem like a form of happiness but is not. To support this claim, I used the quote from Fahrenheit 451: “‘You took all the pills in your bottle last night.’ ‘Oh, I wouldn’t do that,’ [Mildred] said, surprised.

As a future counselor the client is very important to me I must be genuine and open to the client expressing my open feelings, so the client will mirror and express honest and true feelings in return. I must accept the client presently where they are and allow the client to communicate to me of their experiences. The client experiences allow them to verbally express themselves and develop a rational decision towards their present and maybe upcoming issues. The counselor must be an active listener, reflex and repeat the client comment back to them. This technique engages and enforces the empathy of the counselor to the client.
For instance while thinking about the synthesized essay and the amount of resources needed to write it, I made a plan which helped me manage everything on time. Planning for the structure of my essay helped me use a good amount of recourses and write a good essay. Since I am still in my Freshman year I think that such skills are going to be very helpful in the future.

From the article, “Responding, Really Responding”, Richard Straub explains the process of peer response. He taught me that it is important for a responder to give as much feedback as possible to the writer. For instance, when I would do response papers, I would give small simple comments, and then, the writer would always come back to me and ask about my comments. From what Straub shares, he explains that it is acceptable to write a lengthy comment as long as it is giving support to the writer. From now on, I plan on giving details in my comments, so that way my peers will have a better understanding of my suggestions.
