The Helper Squad
The Helper Squad came to life because I always struggled to find counseling materials that incorporated both CBT and social-emotional learning. I needed materials that were flexible and reusable. Most importantly, I wanted materials that my students connected to and would use when they were struggling.
Coping Captain helps students use coping strategies when they are overwhelmed. He teaches them ways to calm down and makes sure they prepared when tough situations are ahead.
