This new edition of The Stress Reduction Workbook for Teens is a collection of simple workbook activities that will teach teens to reduce worries using a technique called mindfulness. Mindfulness is a way to be aware of thoughts and feelings in the present moment. Teens can use mindfulness when they feel as though things are spinning out of control, so they can stop worrying about what might happen and focus instead on what’s happening now. Written by a psychotherapist specializing in mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and featuring brand new exercises, this workbook shows how mindfulness skills can help teens relax, prioritize, and keep calm during stressful times.
“In the updated edition of her popular stress reduction workbook, Gina Biegel offers teens a set of practical and powerful tools to help them recognize their problems and resolve them in a healthy way.”
—Susan Kaiser Greenland, author of
Mindful Games and The Mindful Child
“Gina Biegel’s book is a must-have for all adolescents. From her letter to teens in the beginning addressing social media, to the engaging activities throughout the book, teenagers will recognize their own personal issues and begin to understand that they aren’t alone. The activities are accessible and the explanations easy to understand. These activities, many of which are new in this second edition, provide adolescents with a myriad of tools to address teen stressors, problems, and angst.”
