About this course:

This course teaches stress management and emotional resilience skills using an evidence-based curriculum of mindfulness and self-compassion. It is an adaption of Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC), and fully supported by Kristin Neff and Chris Germer, who developed MSC. This course is designed to reduce stress and increase a sense of feeling relaxed, happier, in control, and connection to others. Research indicates that this course may aid in reducing depression and anxiety in teens and may positively impact academic performance. Through practices and exercises developed just for teens, students have the opportunity to learn how to navigate the emotional ups and downs of life with greater ease. This class is designed for teens, ages 14 – 18.

This course helps teens:

Calm the inner critic (self-kindness vs. self-judgment)
Understand “I am not alone” (common humanity vs. isolation)
Learn Strategies for handling moments of struggle (mindfulness vs. over-identification)
