Session 2 of the Children’s Health and Illness Recovery Program (CHIRP) builds on the topic of stress and stress management by introducing the concept of reducing the impact of stressors via developing more effective coping strategies. In CHIRP, two specific forms of coping are emphasized: “Solving the Problem” coping and “Managing the Impact” coping. This session focuses on teaching the teen about these two forms of coping and learning the when and how of applying each, with the main emphasis being on developing active problem-solving skills in order to reduce stress by addressing and altering the situation.
