Learn strategies for coping with different emotions

The resource below was developed to help you figure out ways to regulate emotions, depending on how much emotional distress you are feeling. Coping skills and techniques were taken primarily from dialectical behavioral therapy, a therapy used to treat depression. 

Take your “emotional temperature” by:

  1. Clicking on the area of the thermometer where you’re “temperature” is currently at (ranging from 0 = doing well, to 10 = high distress)
  2. Learning about suggestions for how to cope with the emotions (coping skills developed from dialectical behavioral therapy).
*These coping skills are intended to be informational and should not be substituted for professional care.
