We all need to cope with life stressors and disappointments. Healthy coping (such as talking things through, using calming skills) is better than unhealthy coping (such as dwelling on the event, aggression or self-harm). Through teaching, modelling, and supporting, even young children can learn healthy coping skills. Embedding coping within schools is likely to develop a healthy, supportive, and coping school community. Coping schools encourages students to understand and own both pleasant and unpleasant emotions and use them to guide their actions.
