Product Description

Teach coping strategies and coping skills to kids and young adults with these lessons and activities. These hands-on and interactive lessons teach what coping strategies are, why we use them, and provide explicit practice with many coping skills such as positive self-talk, listening to music, exercising, coloring, mindfulness, reading, journaling, and many more.

Why Teach Coping Strategies

Coping strategies are activities and tasks that kids and young adults can perform to help reduce feelings of anger, anxiety, stress, and depression. It's important that kids must practice coping strategies when they are calm in order to benefit from them when they are overwhelmed with emotions. Sometimes adults assume that kids already know how to manage their emotions or become calm, but this is not always the case. Many children and young adults need explicit practice with these skills.
