Introducing a Brand New Workshop by Inquiry Adventures:
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 toolbox of ideas to help ourselves and our students and/or clients cope with these various sources of discomfort and stress in our lives.
