From the Publisher
The teen years are a time of intense change, and with these changes often come intense emotions, anxiety, and stress. If you are a teen dealing with challenges in school, problems with friends, and the scary world of dating, you may need guidance and resources for managing your stress in healthy ways.
Written by a nationally recognized pediatrician and expert in mindfulness for adolescents, Calming Your Anxious Mind for Teens provides practical mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) exercises to help you overcome your fears and worries. Originally developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, MBSR is a proven-effective therapy for treating anxiety, depression, stress, and a number of mental health issues. This book is unique in that it specifically adapts MBSR skills for a teen audience.
This book offers safe, natural, alternative strategies to effectively manage anxiety and improve day-to-day functioning. It will provide you with information to help you understand your anxiety, mindfulness practices for increasing awareness, and practical tips for managing stress. In addition, you will learn how to navigate friendships, school, family, sports, and other common factors for teen stress with confidence.
If you are looking to create a personalized anxiety management plan, this is your guide.
