SESSION 1 – STRESS REDUCTION & MINDFULNESS FOR TEENS
with Harriet Rubenstein, LCSW
Teens have so many demands today with school, friendships, family, activities, emotions and technology. Life is busy, stressful and overwhelming. As a result, many feel anxious, worried, sad or depressed. It is so important for teens to learn healthy and positive coping skills to deal with emotions and stress.
This 3 week program will provide skills and strategies to help them throughout their lives. Stress reduction and mindfulness skills teach teens to:
- be and stay in the present
- be aware of their feelings
- experience situations with less emotional reactivity
- learn strategies to make better choices
- develop their own strengths and resiliency
- practice kindness to self and others
Teens will learn and practice the benefits of gentle stretching, yoga, exercise, nutrition, mindfulness meditation, breathing and relaxation in caring for themselves. Self reflection will occur through journaling, activities and discussion.
Session 1 runs 10/5, 10/12 and 10/26, Session 2 runs 11/2, 11/9 and 11/16
Cost is $165 for each 3-week program
