Worksheet published on March 6th, 2023
A pivotal part of therapy is learning coping skills. Coping skills are what a client will use to build a sense of authority over their mental health. Coping skills help clients learn how to manage their symptoms and develop healthier ways of thinking, feeling, behaving, and living.
Mindfulness offers many different types of helpful coping skills. It is the practice of being present and aware without judgment. To be mindful is to be present, without thinking about what you should be doing, focusing on the negative, or looking at what is lacking. Practicing mindfulness skills can help a client significantly improve their overall mental health.
