Coping Skills are not something we are all taught but learned from our environment... but what happens if that environment is negative?
Dealing with the stressors of life in an unhealthy way may give temporary relief but, will just reduce symptoms while strengthening the stressor. If we do not learn how to positively cope, we then pass on our learned way of coping to the next generation and the cycle continues.
