Mindfulness is noticing your thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations in the present moment without judgment.
Do you have a teen who is stressed? Struggling with the pressures of teen life? Feels anxious, distracted, or overwhelmed?
The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens Program will help teens 14-18 years of age learn simple yet effective mindfulness practices.
During the 8-week course, teens will use the techniques of mindfulness to intentionally focus awareness and observations of their own emotions and behaviors from moment to moment.
When inspiring awareness through mindfulness, we transform. Everything changes. In.stead of reacting mindlessly we respond mind-fully. Instead of revolting with aggression, we evolve to discern behavior and to choose nonviolence. Instead of feeling disconnected or helpless, we find everything we do reflects the connection of our personal lives to all others.
The objective of practicing mindfulness is to develop and strengthen one's ability to pay attention, and to be aware of the consequence of one's feelings and behavior.
Greta Nielsen, MA, LCPC, NCC, MBSR-T is psychotherapist for Clinical Care Consultants with over 25 years' experience working with teens.
