Coping skills is an important component of health and it is how a human reacts when faced with problems of life. That is why it is linked to the flexibility of action and health. The aim of the current research is to study the effectiveness of coping strategies training on the flexibility of action and health of female pupils. Therefore, during a semi-experimental study using a pretest – post-test along with the control group, 42 female students in Abadan city were selected using multi-stage random sampling. They were tested regarding flexibility of action and health. Then, training the coping strategies was presented to the experiment group in 8 sessions for duration of 90 minutes. Again both groups were assessed regarding flexibility of action and health. The results of covariance analysis indicated that learning coping strategies effected flexibility of action and health of pupils and induced improvement on it. The result of the follow-up test in both the experiment and control groups indicated the persistence of these effects. Thus, it can be said that training the coping strategies can teach the ability to cope with pressure, tolerance of threat, internal and external pressure and techniques to keep calm in threatening situations and increase the threshold of tolerance when faced with threats and pressures.
