This program includes 48 total lessons—32 Mindfulness-Centered Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Lessons and 16 Mindful-Movement SEL Lessons. All 48 lessons bring together mindfulness, social-emotional learning, and positive neuroplasticity. This program is designed for students, but can be used and accessed by their entire community. The access is for an entire year.

Stressed Teens disseminates the evidence-based Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens (MBSR-T) Program in a variety of settings. We teach mindfulness-based interventions and provide skills for those pre-teens through latter adolescence. Stressed Teens teaches mindfulness-based learning for teens in educational, clinical, and community settings. Stressed Teens can improve a teen’s functioning and quality of living socially, physically, and psychologically. MBSR-T is an adaptation of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program for adults by Jon Kabat-Zinn.

Stressed Teens invites and celebrates human diversity in all forms regardless of race, color, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, ability, personal appearance, or religious/spiritual affiliation. All people are welcome and encouraged to be a part of our groups.

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.
