The Beauty of Coping
This “Beauty of Coping” workshop will look at a variety of age appropriate, fun and meaningful coping strategies to use with children, youth and for ourselves as care-givers. We will be using the Dialectical Behaviour Therapeutic model known as “ACCEPTS” to dive deep into some of these very practical and proven coping tools. The focus of ACCEPTS is seeing coping as a means of distress tolerance as opposed to distress avoidance. Our sources of stress cannot always be avoided, removed or adapted, we sometimes need to find healthy ways to accept and cope with all the various stressors in our lives. The key learning take away from this workshops, in its most basic premise, is to build a tools box of ideas to help ourselves and our clients cope with these various forms of sources of discomfort and stress in our life.
"Thank you for the resources and for taking the time to present such an informed and relevant workshop. Your workshop was a tall cool glass of water in a hot dry desert."
