Making Friends with Yourself Teen Group
Reduce anxiety, depression, stress and negative mood with mindfulness and self-compassion skills for teens.
Adolescence is a time of change, growth and, all too
Making Friends with Yourself is an eight-week program designed to help teens cope
more effectively with the challenges of their day-to day life.
Making Friends with Yourself combines the benefits of mindfulness and self-compassion. Mindfulness teaches us to be present with difficult emotions, while self-compassion helps us to respond to these emotions with greater kindness and self-care.
Through developmentally appropriate activities and meditations, teens will learn specific tools that help them navigate the emotional ups and downs of this challenging life-stage with greater ease.
Preliminary research on Making Friends with Yourself has demonstrated significant decreases in depression, anxiety, perceived stress, and negative mood through taking this course.
