“Today is a new day!” — Chicken Little
Ms. Little released the following transcript with permission.
Therapist: Let me make sure I understand this. So you initially believed the sky was falling?
Chicken Little: I know it seems ridiculous now, but I was convinced it was happening.
T: What made you think so?
CL: I was hit on the head.
T: By the sky?
CL: Well, yes, I thought it was.
T: What made you think it was the sky?
CL: Well, it came from above my head, and I thought it was the end of the world.
T: But you started to think there might be other explanations.
CL: Yes, but I always think the worst. If I sneeze, I have swine flu. If I call my boyfriend and he doesn’t answer, I think he is with some other chick.
CL: Yes, there are a lot of good-looking chicks in my area of the woods.
