99 Coping Skills Poster: Taking care of yourself after a traumatic event is essential for healing spiritually, emotionally, and physically. There are several types of coping skill ideas to choose from. Some coping skills work as a distraction. An example of a coping skill used for the purpose of distracting would be watching a movie. Other coping skills involve reaching out for support by talking with a friend or engaging in physical activity. Yoga is one type of physical activity. Finally, coping skills can be emotions or thoughts, such as using self talk or positive affirmations and/or humor. Positive affirmations (i.e. self talk) and humor act as a buffer from those negative thoughts or feelings we have when coping with trauma. At the beginning of this post, you will find a list of 99 coping skill ideas to use. Please note that this list is not comprehensive, as there are many types of coping skill ideas not listed here.
