Coping Skills and Resilience

Adapted by Alissa Brown, Psy.D. from materials created by Minding Your Mind

Coping skills are the strategies you use when faced with stressful or problematic situations to help manage painful or difficult emotions.  Sometimes we use coping strategies unconsciously.  Our coping skills might be healthy or unhealthy.  It is important to be aware of how you cope so that you can choose healthy coping strategies and build up your toolbox of skills.

This section provides guidance about positive vs. negative coping skills and different positive coping skills for different situations, such as emotional release, ways to self-soothe, distraction, and self-compassion. Understanding that all people face challenges and difficult emotions, this section also provides education about how to get through adversity and promote resilience through identifying, accessing, and supporting the tools, skills, and relationships one can use to overcome challenges.
