Mindfulness is a natural part of being human that involves present moment awareness and can be cultivated through formal and informal exercises. Research on mindfulness interventions point to beneficial effects in emotional, physical, and academic domains, and mindfulness is increasingly integrated into academic and clinical settings involving adolescents. This session provides an introduction and overview of mindfulness in interactions and work with adolescents through the format of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens (MBSR-T) Program. This program was created and developed by conference speaker Gina Biegel and has been effective among adolescents in mental health, school and community settings. The MBSR-T, 8-week program has been demonstrated through research to be an effective and evidenced-based intervention to reduce adolescent stress and the physical and psychological problems that result (Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 2009; Psychological Assessment 2011). This session will include beginning mindfulness practices through the specific curriculum of the MBSR-T program adapted for work with adolescents.
