Stress Reduction for Teens



Colleen Millen
Kiara Curzi
Founded in 2004 by Gina Biegel ( Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens has been demonstrated through research to be effective and evidence-based intervention to reduce adolescent stress and the physical and psychological problems that result. 
Teens often have difficulty with their relationships, emotions, confidence, procrastination, impulsiveness and attention. This program can improve a teen's functioning and quality of living socially, physically and psychologically. 

In this 8-class psycho educational series, your teen will learn...
  • To identify how one experiences stress, both emotionally and physically, and how to dial down those responses. 
  • To apply what is learned to de-stress in school and social situations.
  • How to deal with situations such as social media and homework through mindful group discussions.
  • Mindfulness practices that are adapted for teens.
