Take in the Good: Skills for Staying Positive, Reducing Stress and Living Your Best Life

February 15, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am UTC-8

Teens and young adults today are facing greater mental health challenges than ever before. Whether sensory overload from electronic devices, cyberbullying, or academic pressures – they are in dire need of education in self-care.

Participants will learn how to help teens cope with and manage stress and bring mindfulness techniques and practices into their lives. These skills will help teens to become empowered to take control of their well-being, increase self-esteem, and live life with renewed hope and enthusiasm. As youth make these simple, accessible, mindfulness and self-care practices part of their routine, they will discover little life-hacks to bring immediate relief and ease to get through even the toughest days. Acquiring skills to choose to focus on positive experiences aka ‘Taking in the Good’ will bring build beneficial lasting benefits.

Other Mindfulness Approaches

MBSR-T is an adaptation of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program for adults (Kabat-Zinn, 1982, 1990, 2013). The MBSR-T intervention is closely related to the traditional MBSR program created by Kabat-Zinn and colleagues. The MBSR-T program is meant to be a program to use with adolescents and young adults versus the traditional MBSR program for adults. Like MBSR, MBSR-T is based on secular adaptations of mindfulness practices with roots in Eastern meditation traditions. MBSR-T is also strongly influenced by mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (Segal, Williams, & Teasdale, 2002, 2013). Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) practices are imbedded within and throughout Stressed Teens services. To learn more about SEL: https://www.stressedteens.com/inspiration-and-need.
