Mindfulness-based Therapy™ for Adolescents

"Being mindful means that we suspend judgment for a time, set aside our immediate goals for the future, and take in the present moment as it is rather than as we would like it to be.” J. Mark G. Williams

Mindfulness-based Therapy™ for Adolescents courses are steeped in the research that supports the use of mindfulness-based practices having a positive effect on mental health outcomes.

Ensuring teenagers are authentically engaged and connected with the therapist will be essential for optimizing the effectiveness of any psychotherapy intervention. Therapists have discovered that it is particularly difficult to involve adolescents in therapy, and there are multiple factors contributing to this challenge. To effectively involve teenagers in psychotherapy and build a solid therapeutic connection with them, therapists must demonstrate empathy and authenticity, employ interventions that are suitable for their stage of development, tackle the issue of stigma, and enhance the level of autonomy in therapy.

Mindfulness-based practices on the part of the clinician and as introduced to teen clients  can support clinicians in establishing and maintaining the essential therapeutic alliance, anchoring the the quality of your therapeutic presence with clients, and facilitating clients' awareness of sensing, feeling, and thinking.
