Description

Workshop is now FULL.

In recent years there has been a growing interest in the application of mindfulness to adolescent populations, both clinical and nonclinical. This introductory workshop overviews what mindfulness is, methods for engaging adolescents with mindfulness interventions on both the individual and group levels, and a basic philosophical framework for how and why mindfulness can be beneficial for adolescents. Participants can expect a mix of didactic and experiential teaching methods and should expect to leave the workshop with tangible tools they may try with their clients/students immediately.
Learning Objectives
1. List the three therapist qualities necessary for working with adolescents from a mindfulness-based model.
2. Discuss how to work with resistant adolescents from a mindfulness-based model.
3. Describe five tips for teaching mindfulness to youth.
4. Apply mindfulness as an intervention to the group setting with adolescents.
