The Early Years Coping Cards provide clinicians and educators with a visual tool to help focus the attention of either individual children or groups of children on a range of challenging everyday situations that may cause uncertainty or fear, and on strategies for coping with these.
The tool is primarily used to develop coping strategies and stimulate conversations about coping within various situations. Cards can relate to 'real-life' events (situation cards) or present visual cues about the different ways in which children may respond to the situations presents (coping cards).
Suitable for use with children from 4-8 years of age, the Early Years Coping Cards-Set includes:
The User Guide provides background information on coping and coping in the early years, the cards and how to use them (both situation and coping) and multiple classroom examples of the cards in use.
