Coping Skills 1.5CE
(Some Boards distinguish between general CEs and other types. Please review your specific state requirements to learn more.)
This course includes a review of three basic types of coping skills: emotional, behavioral, and cognitive. It is offered for CE credit to remind the helper of important tools and techniques necessary for self-care as a helper, but it is also a guide for the helper to use with his/her clients, as well. The Coping Skills Handbook will explain the difference between the three types of coping skills and provide examples of each.
