Register to attend Dr Erica Frydenberg’s workshop ‘Becoming a resilient coper across the life-span: skills and strategies workshop’ here.  

The Best of Coping Program is designed to provide teachers, youth workers, social workers and counsellors with a structured, comprehensive program for helping adolescents develop resilience and coping skills.

The program contains modules covering a range of topics, including:

  • Getting along with others
  • Getting help
  • Problem solving
  • Decision making
  • Goal setting.

The program is sufficiently flexible to allow for customisation to the needs of students or clients.

The Best of Coping Facilitator's Guide provides background information on the program, guidelines for facilitating a session and suggested activities.

The Best of Coping is based on the research and experience gained from the Adolescent Coping Scale. Using the same concepts as the ACS, the Best of Coping can be used as a follow-up intervention program.
