As we start another year with remote learning, I want to ensure that students I work with have the necessary tools for their social and emotional well-being at home. Many students that typically came into my office after a crisis or anxiety attack relied on the sensory tools I had to promote self-regulation. This is why I want to provide students with coping skills kits which include manipulatives (stress balls), journals and sketchbooks, printed worksheets and coping skills cards (purchased through teachers pay teachers), and other resources to support their mental health and social-emotional learning. Kits will be provided in the student's native language (English or Spanish). Especially now with students being permanently away from school it is important to discuss major topics such as abuse, anxiety, emotional regulation, self-esteem, and more through bibliotherapy which I plan on doing with the books provided. Bibliotherapy will reach a great amount of our students in the school (there are over 1,200 students total) both in the general education and the special education program. Additionally, the coping skills kits will come with headphones for students that I service because many of the books, mindfulness activities and instructions for social work-related tasks will be provided to the students through video. The headphones will also allow the students to participate in synchronous (live) therapy without home distractions. Thank you for your support!
