We develop our coping skills over the years as a method to get our needs met starting in childhood. Some of these coping skills have become unproductive in our adult lives. In this workbook we discuss how we can empathize with our own unproductive coping skills while shifting to ones that might be more conducive to meeting our current needs.
In my free Ignite Your Power book 1, Harnessing the Power of Your Intensity, we talked about how to build your own toolkit to get in your power zone, which helps you to get in a positive emotional and mental state so that you can step back and gain clarity and connection and give yourself empathy.
In book 5, Building Positive Coping Skills, we explore existing coping skills we’ve developed and examine how we can shift to more productive ways to support our needs.
Identify our unproductive coping strategies.
