We all need skills to effectively navigate and manage life’s challenges. When we don’t have effective coping skills, however, we can feel overwhelmed, anxious, dysregulated, and stressed. Behavioral rehearsal strategies are incredibly effective in supporting a person as they develop new coping skills to help manage stress and stressful situations. When we go beyond simply discussing new skills to practicing them, we are setting clients up for success by teaching them how to use the tools in their lives. During this workshop, we highlight the importance of skills training, explore how to engage clients in skills rehearsal, review the steps of effective skills practice and develop strategies to individualize rehearsal practice to suit the unique needs of each client.
