Dealing with stress, anxiety and anger are important skills to learn, but not all kids learn those strategies naturally. The Coping Skills for Kids Workbook can help teach children to calm down, balance their energy and emotions, and process challenging feelings. These 75 innovative, fun and engaging activities developed from her experience in schools, outpatient mental health clinics. It is even available as a digital copy too!
