Healthy vs. Unhealthy Coping Strategies

worksheet

Coping strategies are the actions we take to deal with stress, problems, or uncomfortable emotions. Unhealthy coping strategies often provide instant gratification or relief, but have long-term negative consequences. In contrast, healthy coping strategies don’t always feel good in the moment, but they contribute to long-lasting positive outcomes.

The Healthy vs. Unhealthy Coping Strategies worksheet was designed to teach your clients about the importance of using healthy coping strategies, and then guide them toward applying this knowledge in their own lives. The first page of this worksheet focuses on psychoeducation, using examples and real-life scenarios. The second page encourages your clients to explore a problem they are dealing with, and the various coping strategies they are using in response.

This worksheet is a great fit for clients who are dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, or addiction. Additionally, the included vignettes and discussion questions are great prompts for groups.
