February Coping Skills

Happy February. I hope everyone is staying warm! This month the counseling program will be focusing on coping skills. Coping skills are simply how we handle our problems. We can have negative (eating too much food when stressed, hurting ourselves or others) coping skills or positive coping skills (using breathing techniques, counting to ten ect.). Coping skills are very important to regulation of our emotions and used in everyday life. In order to effectively use coping skills we must first learn to talk about and understand our emotions. The primary levels will be doing lessons on emotions this month. I hope the information below will help you as you begin to teach your child coping skills.
