Facilitator Reproducible Activities for Groups and Individuals

Coping Skills for Teens

As teens mature, their sources of stress can grow too. This workbook's activities tap into teens' fun and energetic creativity to teach them new coping skills for dealing with stress, change, and the many obstacles they face as they grow into responsible and caring adults.

The seven chapters include:

  • De-Stress
  • Build Emotional Empowerment
  • Develop Healthy Habits
  • Manage Social Media
  • Stand Up for Self and Others
  • Overcome Obstacles
  • Advance Beyond Coping – Thrive

Why is this book entitled "Teens ~ Out-of-the-Box Coping Skills"?

At the start of every session, a teen takes an item from a brightly decorated box to introduce an activity. Every activity involves actions that encourage the skill of thinking outside of the box.

Participants will be encouraged to reflect, ask questions, give opinions and receive feedback; draw, write, act, play games; be a leader or a team member; create posters, bumper stickers or tee shirt slogans; and participate in many other creative activities.

This workbook is also available in PDF eBook format, making it simple to store on your computer or mobile device and to access with a PDF viewer. The PDF format allows you to easily print copies of the activities and worksheets during therapy and counseling sessions.
