I found the cutest, free worksheet that is so good for helping students to discuss their feelings and to focus on positive coping skills to help them during a difficult time. I think that it aligns well with Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and student’s almost always ask if they can bring it home (and I let them)! I also like to send them home with a coping skills worksheet (see the Individual Counseling: Coping Skills post) to accompany this worksheet. Personally, I like to encourage them to practice these coping skills and promise them a prize from my prize box if they complete all 100 coping skills! Most of them are pretty easy, and they can put a smiley or frown face next to each skill to show whether the coping skill was helpful to them or not.
