Is your child’s worry causing you to worry? Could your teen's “acting out” or behavioral issues be caused by anxiety, depression, or some underlying issue that you may not be aware of? Many children and teens struggle to manage symptoms on a daily basis. This often results in poor school performance, issues with peer relationships, family discord, and other behavioral concerns. If you’re at a loss or feeling frustrated, therapy can be a helpful way to gain an understanding of why a child may be struggling. You and your child can then learn various ways to cope with stressors. Call me for a free initial phone consultation.

Coping Skills Therapists
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, therapists in Toms River 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 Toms River or for a Toms River coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Toms River coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
