Description

Use these 40 coping strategies cards to teach and practice coping skills for tough emotions and stress. Practicing coping strategies on a regular basis helps build self-regulation and independence. Cards are cut out and put on a ring for students to identify coping strategies to help in times of need.

Examples of coping strategies include:

  • listening to music
  • using positive self-talk
  • taking a walk
  • taking deep breaths
  • identifying a positive thought
  • visualizing a favorite place
  • counting to ten
  • reading
  • picturing a stop sign
  • using a stress ball
  • hyperfocusing on an object
  • talking to an adult
  • and more.

Blank cards are included to make your own individualized coping strategy cards, as needed.

Different Versions Included

I have added a second version of cards. The first version includes clipart with younger kids. The second version includes alternative clipart. You can use this version for your older students.

Digital Version

A digital version for Google Slides is included! To access, just open the PDF with "digital directions" in the title. Then, click the link in the blue box.

How to Use

Cut out cards, laminate, and put on a ring. You may give to individual students to use on their own. Students can choose which cards and coping strategies best apply to them. In times of need, students should independently utilize their coping strategies key ring and choose an activity to help them de-escalate and calm down. Sets of cards can also be placed in the principal's office, in a special education room, in a calm down area, or at the nurse.
