Young adulthood is a period of transition, discovery and hope for the future. Current events, including the global pandemic, compound the typical stress and feelings of uncertainty inherent to this stage of life. Mindful Self-Compassion for Teens and Young Adults (MFY) is an empirically supported, 8-session program designed to empower participants to grow through their challenges and embrace life more fully — even in this extraordinary time.
This course will meet Monday and Wednesday afternoons, July 20th through Aug 12th, 4:00-5:30 EDT / 3:00-4:30 CDT
* Dr. Kristie Engel, PhD (she/her) – Licensed Psychologist & Trained MFY Teacher
* Heather Montague, MS (she/her) – Learning Specialist & Trained MFY Teacher
In this class, students of all genders will connect online via Zoom to learn strategies to:
* calm their minds
* relax their bodies
* be less overwhelmed by intense emotions, social comparison and their inner critic
* motivate themselves with kindness instead of harsh criticism
* clarify their values and stand up for what matters to them
* be more present to enjoy the good things in their lives
* recognize they are not alone in their experiences
* feel more connected to others
* build resilience
Dr. Engel and Ms. Montague meet with each student individually for a brief orientation (15-20 minutes) to answer questions and share more about the program. Parents are welcome to attend.
