About Coping Kits
What are they?
A coping kit contains the materials, directions and rationale for 10 fun therapeutic activities that parents can do with kids to develop coping strategies to manage their emotions at home.
Why do I need it?
To help your child and family improve their communication around emotions, develop coping strategies, overcome worries and reduce stress.
How do they work?
Each coping strategy is designed to help parents and kids work through difficult emotions and anxieties together. The strategies are the same interventions that I use with children as a psychotherapist and are informed by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques.
Who are they for?
Coping kits are designed to help families with kids aged 6-12 with managing emotions. They are a convenient and cost effective way for busy parents to prioritize the emotional health of their children.
When should they be used?
Coping Kits can be used proactively with kids who don’t have emotional struggles just to support positive emotional health now and in the future. They can be used if you are identifying that your child may have some anxiety, but it is not interfering in a major way with their functioning. Coping Kits can be used in conjunction with therapy for the treatment of anxiety. Coping Kits can be used after therapy is over to continue working on coping skills at home. If your child is in therapy, please review the contents with their therapist to be sure the strategies are an appropriate compliment and/or how to tailor them to better suit your child’s individual needs.

About Me: My name is Tiffany Teamer. I am a licensed clinical social worker and specialize in work with children and families. I love being a therapist and helping kids with their emotions! I am also a busy mom of two great kids who need help with their emotions sometimes! I am so excited to share my Coping Kits with you! I think they are the perfect tool to help busy families work through difficult emotions that we all face in life. Kids don’t come with an instruction book! I can give you, the parent, the tools you need to help your child cope better. Not all kids need or want a therapist. Coping Kits allow parents and children to work through difficult emotions and worries together. They help families connect and better communicate while having fun!
