Coping Skills: Tools & Techniques for Every Stressful Situation
Emergency skills to deal with anxiety, triggers, freak-outs, trauma, and grief
You know those days when you just can't even? When everything is haywire and everyone, including yourself, seems to be against you, not to mention against reason? Your to-do list is a mile long, your kid is sick, traffic sucks, and you just spilled coffee all over yourself as you were about to walk out the door? How do you cope? Most of us don't have great coping skills, and turn instead to addictions, zoning out, or freaking out. Dr. Faith, author of the bestselling Unfuck Your Brain, offers a range of healthier strategies for getting through tough moments, gaining perspective, and shifting your attitude.
This book teaches you different strategies for different types of situations, and includes skills from many methodologies, including CBT, DBT, ACT, Positive Psychology, Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction, Somatic Experiencing, Jungian therapy, and more.
