  • Tools for Teens: Stress Management and Emotional Resilience

    October 4 - November 22, 2020 / 4:00 - 5:45pm - Online via Zoom

    Based on the evidenced-based curriculum of Mindful Self Compassion, this 8-week experiential program for teens provides practices and tools to manage stress, increase feelings of happiness and well-being, and promote emotional resilience. In each weekly session, we will discuss concepts related to well-being and do a variety of practices, including seated mindfulness meditations, intentional movement, and creative projects. We will also learn practical skills you can use in any moment to help when feeling stressed and overwhelmed with emotions. Research on this course suggests that participation may reduce depression and anxiety in teens and may positively impact engagement and academic performance. This class is designed for teens, ages 14-18, and is taught by two women who have experience working with adolescents and have adolescents of their own. They have seen the power of mindfulness and compassion personally to support teen well-being.
