    DescriptionFirst, the bad news: your teenage years are some of the most stressful of your life. Up to 70 percent of teens say they're stressed out, and with pressure about grades at school, parents who just don't seem to get it, and friends who drive you crazy, it's no wonder. Here's the good news! If you learn a few strategies for getting stress under control now, you'll have the skills you need to deal with problems and difficult feelings that life sends your way in high school and beyond. The Stress Reduction Workbook for Teens is a collection of thirty-seven simple workbook activities that will teach you to reduce your worries using a technique called mindfulness. Mindfulness is a way to be aware of your thoughts and feelings in the present moment. You can use mindfulness when you start to feel as though things are spinning out of control, so you can stop worrying about what might happen and focus instead on what's happening now. Ready to get started? Open this workbook and try out the first activity. Soon, you'll be well on your way to developing resilience and a new kind of strength. If you're like many people, you find it easy to look at your negative qualities or feel there is no way to fix your problems or stress. This book is about building on the resources, skills, and positive qualities that you might not even realize you have. It is a way to move from "I'm powerless" thinking to "I can do it!" thinking. Hundreds of teens in mindfulness-based stress reduction classes have used activities like the ones in this book, and here is what some of them have said: "I have learned to let things go and move on from bad experiences." "I felt that the coping skills learned are easy enough and effective enough to be used when I need. I now feel at the very least that I have the ability to reduce my stress." "I learned new and different ways to stay relaxed and how to deal with stress and now I don't worry much."If they can do it, so can you!

    Author Information
    Gina M. Biegel, MA, LMFT, is a California-based psychotherapist currently in private practice in the Bay Area. She adapted the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program typically for adults for an adolescent population, and is the founder and creator of Stressed Teens, a program using the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens (MBSR-T) program. MBSR-T has proven to be an efficacious and evidence-based program for adolescents as demonstrated through her research published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology in 2009 and in Psychological Assessment in 2011. She conducts trainings, workshops and conferences on MBSR/MBSR-T with a variety of populations including professionals, teachers, parents, and teens in the U.S. and internationally. A more recent area of work is in bringing mindfulness into the California Elementary School system through her role as a member of the Research Advisory Board for Mindful Schools and assessed the effectiveness of such a program. She is also exploring brain-imaging work at Stanford University with adolescents who practice MBSR-T. Ms. Biegel is interested in expanding MBSR-T into other teen populations in a variety of settings while assessing potential efficacy, and dispensing the MBSR-T curriculum so that professionals trained in MBSR-T can utilize this intervention in their own work. Through MBSR-T, it is intended that adolescents will reduce their pain and suffering and improve their overall functioning and quality of life. Ms. Biegel participates on the Board of a number of related organizations: Mind Body Awareness Project (MBA), Association for Mindfulness in Education (AME), Mindfulness in Education Network (MiEN), Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme). Her first book, a workbook, entitled, The Stress Reduction Workbook for Teens: Mindfulness Skills to Help You Deal With Stress, is currently available as well as her audio CD, Being. Please visit her website, www.stressedteens.com, www.facebook.com/stressedteens, and follow her on Twitter @stressedteens. Enjoy her blog on Mindful.org On Teen Life and her work on Sharecare.com as a Sharecare expert.
    Review quote
    I heartily recommend this workbook! Gina Biegel has crafted a series of mindfulness practices and reflections that are easily accessible, inviting, and wise. Teens who take the time to 'work' this workbook will gain insights about mindfulness, stress, and the mind-body connection that should benefit and serve them for years to come. -- Jeff Brantley, MD, director of the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program at Duke Integrative Medicine and coauthor of Five Good Minutes(R) in Your Body
