Coping through the Pandemic
A class for teens and pre-teens
Lifework's Coping through a Pandemic for Pre-Teens (ages 9 to 13) and for Teens (ages 14-18) helps pre-teens and teens learn about their emotions and cope with the effects of the pandemic. This class combines the concepts of "zones of regulation" with coping strategies from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
The zones of regulation are used widely in many school settings. One goal of these classes is to create and promote a common language about emotions between the school and home settings, creating more collaboration from the two environments. Teens and their parents will learn skills to help with decreasing their anxiety, reducing impulsive behaviors, finding connection, regulating high emotions, and coping through this difficult time.
