Coping 101

Coping 101 is a skills training, drop-in group for students who would like to learn and practice techniques to cope with negative feelings, such as extreme sadness, anxiety and anger.  Skills taught in this group are from Dialectical Behavior Therapy, which focuses on mindfulness, regulating emotions, tolerating distress and improving relationships.

Participants will develop an understanding of the relationship between moods, thoughts and behaviors.  They will be taught coping skills to regulate difficult feelings, tolerate challenging situations, and manage emotional crises.  Participants will be encouraged to apply and practice their developing coping skills between group meetings.  Topics change from week to week!
