Coping Skills 

A coping skill is the way that you choose to respond to your feelings of stress, anger, and other emotions. There are two types of coping skills - healthy and unhealthy. 


A healthy coping skill is a way of coping that helps you feel better and doesn't harm you or other people physically or emotionally. A healthy coping skill is one that doesn't lead to negative consequences. 


An unhealthy coping skill might help you feel better in the moment, but it usually lead to consequences and can be harmful to yourself and others. A pattern of using unhealthy coping skills usually leads to poor relationships with others.
