Mindfulness for Children and Teens: A Practical Approach
Copyright :


For too many children or teens, talk and even play therapy feels unhelpful at best, and stigmatizing at worst. But when we can effectively introduce mindfulness into our sessions, we empower kids to transform themselves, allowing them to identify and regulate their emotions and attention with fun and effective exercises. In this interactive workshop, you’ll discover ways to share engaging and immediately powerful mindfulness practices with kids who are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, and more.
