I love using books when working with children as a mental health professional. It’s such a great way to start a conversation or introduce some different strategies to them. Here are several of my favorite books to use to help kids learn to manage their anger.
I love learning at conferences, but I don’t always get a chance to attend them live in person. Over the last few years, I’ve taken advantage of online conferences, like the Mom Conference. There are always some incredible speakers, and I get a chance to learn from them in my own home. Not only am I looking forward to learning from the speakers at this year’s Mom Conference, I’m so excited and honored to be a speaker myself!
Coping skills are activities anyone can do to help manage difficult thoughts and feelings or challenging situations. It’s important for everyone, both kids and adults, to know and use coping skills. Not all coping skills work in every situation, so it’s good to have a variety to help manage different challenges.
Karen Lock-Kolp from We Turned Out Okay and I are hosting a FREE workshop at the Bellingham Public Library on Monday, April 23rd from 6 pm to 7:30 pm. Here’s some more information about the workshop!
Inside: Information about the Anxiety, ADHD, and Anger in the Classroom day-long seminar, including an overview of the day and feedback from participants.
Last week, I did something that I’ve always wanted to do as a professional. I gave my first full day presentation through PESI. I flew to New York and presented a day-long seminar on the topic of Anxiety, ADHD and Anger in the Classroom. I created this presentation not only to introduce and discuss coping skills but also give professionals an opportunity to try some of the coping skills before presenting them to their students.
It’s fantastic to have a variety of coping skills tools and resources, but it can take a while to gather all of the things you’d love to have in your collection. So, as a way to support you, I’m doing a giveaway! I’ve gathered some of my favorite materials and resources to give to one person. Take a look at what you’ll get if you win!!
