Teen YOUniversity: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens
Do you have a teen/tween who is struggling with the pressures of teen life? Stressed? Anxious? Overwhelmed? Distracted? Unfocused? Give your teen the edge for responding more skillfully to life in the 21st Century!
In an increasingly disconnected world, our in-class group experience helps teens know they are not alone in their struggles with the pressures of life as a teen, while offering gentle support and opportunities to address personal challenges and questions. Of course, it’s not just youth with social-emotional or mental health challenges who can benefit from this program. Our practices and principles can benefit all students because our Teen YOUniversity program equips and teaches students HOW to cultivate the inner resources, or “superpowers” for reducing stress and experiencing more balance, resilience, overall well-being. Learn the science and psychology of stress and emotions and how to feel more in control.
Calming & relaxation practices * Mindful awareness training * Movement * Journaling through writing and art * Games * and more!
These positive experiences will transform, not only inner peace and happiness, but also social dynamics at school, at home, and in the community! These are skills for life!
Students should bring: journal, notebook, pen
