What we do

Aviva leads a workshop with PHENND VISTA educators at University of Pennsylvania

Creative Coping does three main things:

1. Facilitate workshops, present educational material on coping, adapting, and managing life transitions

2. Document the stories of individuals who have faced life-threatening illnesses and injuries, offer therapeutic resources

3. Offer value-added gift items to help people establish healthy daily habits to minimize stress

Aviva leads a workshop with Mighty Writers North After-School Program.

Who uses Creative Coping?  

Therapists use the workshop material with clients and staff.

Organizations use Creative Coping workshops for events, trainings, adult education, and EAP.  As one participant noted, “Creative Coping is good for us because we need reminders that we can’t control everything.” – Robert D.

“Our older adult groups liked the tool kits because it gave us new ways to think about aging, plus it was fun and educational.” – Elaine S.

Public schools: “Our children have very few resources, and they are living with enormous challenges. The more support we can give them, the better they can perform. We welcome Creative Coping. – Ms. Edwards

Some of our content is serious, and some of it is downright silly, to make you smile. Humor is key.
