Coping Skills Fables are Smart and Fun
The reason we think you will be interested in using this program is the unique approach, the scientific validity and frankly, because it is fun.
If you want a child to remember something, make it a story. If you want them to learn how to deal with peer pressure or to be persistent or to be considerate, put these messages in an enjoyable story and help the child understand how to use these skills.
Coping Skills LLC has developed a series of story books that will teach anyone (young child to adult) “Good Thinking” skills that will help them be happier and more successful. Many of the stories also contain worksheets, quizzes and exercises. Plus, we provide “Parent Notes” with each story to help parents become the “coach” in developing these skills.
The Coping Skills program, “The Adventures of Cosmos Crow” has undergone rigorous evaluations that have shown that the use of these stories, along with appropriate adult support, helps children make significant and long lasting positive changes.
This program is a featured chapter, “The Use of Metaphorical Fables” with Children, in the nationally published book, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Clinical Social Work practice, edited by Dr. Arthur Freeman (2006). The developer of these stories received the 2005 Social Work Service Award from the LSU School of Social Work in recognition of this program.
“A little extra (time, money, energy)
spent on the young, saves much in the
‘cost’ of frustration, heartache and
disappointment as they grow older.”
