Coping Skills Support Groups
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, support groups in Thousand Oaks can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Thousand Oaks or for a Thousand Oaks coping skills support group, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Thousand Oaks coping skills support groups, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

Thousand Oaks Support Groups and Group Therapy
Group therapy takes many forms. The groups are variously referred to (often interchangeably) as Thousand Oaks counseling groups, Thousand Oaks support groups, Thousand Oaks mutual support groups or peer support groups, self help groups, stress coping groups, workshops and mental health groups. They are moderated by a professional group counselor, group therapist or group psychologist and generally focus on a specific issue or client profile (e.g. men or women etc).

Before joining a Thousand Oaks support group, first see if the group's issue focus is consistent with your needs. If there are no groups offering support around your issue, feel free to contact these professionals in Thousand Oaks to ask for a referral to alternative groups nearby.
