In this book, a clinical social worker offers fast, easy mindfulness skills to help teens successfully navigate all the areas of life, including making good choices, completing tasks, increasing academic success, excelling at sports, driving safely, getting enough sleep, managing stress, and more.
By paying attention to the moment, teens find themselves less distracted and better able to focus on what’s going on right now—whether it’s an algebra test, a job interview, or an important conversation with a friend. The mindfulness activities in this workbook will also help build self-awareness and practice self-reflection—key skills to succeeding in life! These skills will help teens start feeling more focused, less stressed, and gain confidence in their ability to reach their goals.
“Mindfulness for Teens with ADHD nails it! Any teen—indeed, any person—who has ADHD can gain enormously by using this practical, reader-friendly, immensely valuable workbook. The author knows her stuff, having worked in the real world of teens and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) for years. I give this book the highest recommendation. It will reduce stress, build skills, and dramatically improve the life of every person who uses it.”
—Edward Hallowell, MD, coauthor of Driven to Distraction
