Mindful Kids and Teens

childpsych has developed a new group program for children and adolescents. Mindful Kids and Teens is designed to implement the growing positive research on mindfulness.

Mindfulness is a meditation type intervention that has been shown to alter the structure in the brain to result in good quality thoughts and feelings. Research studies also show that adolescents who are mindful, either through their character or through learning, tend to experience greater well-being, and that being more mindful tends to accompany more positive emotion, greater popularity and having more friends, and less negative emotion and anxiety.

Mindfulness interventions are helpful for those emotionally "sensitive" children and adolescents, those suffering anxiety and/or depression but also appears to have some benefit for children with AD/HD.
