Positive and Negative Coping Skills Activity Worksheet- Printable PDF

Cartoon jars on a mockup of a printout.

This worksheet invites the user to fill the jar with all the different things they use to cope with upsetting feelings.

Users can write, draw, or otherwise represent their responses in the empty space of the jar and when they are finished, counselors can reflect with clients or students about whether each skill is positive, negative, or neutral.

NOTE: The bright blue jar version is available as a poster-sized print on Society6. With the poster, this can be done as a group activity using sticky notes to “fill” the jar.

This worksheet is available in the 3 formats below, choose based on your printer’s color capacity and whether the activity will be self-directed or leader-directed.
