“Applying Real Life Coping Skills: A Social Skills Game and Activity Pack” is a resource designed to give students the opportunity to learn and practice social skills using a structured and interactive format. It targets stress management skills by breaking them into discrete steps and using real life, relatable scenarios to illustrate and explain the concepts.
Four specific coping skills are introduced and two task cards are provided for each skill to extend and reinforce the learning.
A set of forty-eight playing cards as well as instructions for playing two different matching-type card games are included. The scenario cards make great prompts for writing assignment, class discussions or role play activities
It is suggested that the cards be printed on heavy cardstock, cut out and laminated to extend their use.
These materials were designed to be flexible and can be used during one-to-one, small group and whole group instruction with a wide range of learners.
