Soothe Your Soul Coping Skill Game
Updated: Jul 7, 2022
Coping skills are such a vital part of effective therapy. It seems like I'm always drilling the skills, trying to help children implement them when they need them. It seems like each kid learns differently and identifies with a different set of skills.

This counseling game is very heavy on CBT. It focuses on visualization, thought stopping and replacement, and rescripting. All coping skills are important, but I find CBT skills to be the most effective. When children learn how to control their thoughts and self-talk, they can be in control of their emotions. Once they feel calm and in control of their emotional state, behaviors should improve as well.
