This workbook is designed for adolescents attending the Taming the Adolescent Mind group programme. It combines facts, insights and cutting edge science with activities that are fun.
It communicates science to adolescents that will not make their heads spin, providing a complete session-by-session guide and resource filled with tips for future reference.
The Taming the Adolescent Mind program has proven to be effective in treating adolescents with mixed psychological distress. This includes learning and applying techniques of R.O.A.M (regulate attention; observing attention; acceptance; meaningful and mindful living), with structured exercises and demonstrations with the goal of achieving mindfulness skills.
This manual enables the practitioner to facilitate a mindfulness group-based programme for adolescents aged 13 – 18 years old.
A complete step-by-step resource to teach mindfulness skills to adolescents, it is recommended for school counsellors, teachers and clinicians.
