Visuals to help kids learn and use healthy coping skills!

When the kids in your life struggle with BIG emotions, you want to help them. The Coping Cue Cards can teach them new coping skills and remind them of all the actions they can take to feel better. No lectures, just beautiful, kid-friendly visuals to empower them.

The Coping Cue Cards Sensory Deck is a deck of cards designed to help kids learn healthy coping skills. It has 44 coping skills cards with simple strategies that use a child's senses to help them regulate their emotions.

    We know that not all coping skills work in all places. To make it easier, we’ve included cheerful divider cards to help you sort skills by different settings like when traveling, at school, at social events, and in stores & restaurants.

    There are so many ways to use the Sensory Deck:

    • to help kids identify which coping skills they already use and love
    • as a visual reminder to use a coping skill
    • as a way to find new coping skills to expand their toolbox
    • character cards can help open up a conversation about different ways to cope and encourage kids to think of their own ideas
    • and many more!

    Coping Skills for Kids was created by Janine Halloran, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Massachusetts who has been working with children, teens, and their families for 20 years. She has been helping children and teens build their coping skills and social skills throughout her career in a variety of settings, including schools, mental health clinics and continues to do so now in her private practice.

    Are these coping skills evidence-based?

    According to the American Psychological Association (2006), evidence-based practice means “the integration of the best available research with clinical expertise in the context of patient characteristics, culture, and preferences.” The resources created at Coping Skills for Kids are made with this definition in mind.
