The Stressed Teens Training Institute: New online classes

This spring, Gina M. Biegel, MA, LMFT and "On Teen Life" blogger, is offering a variety of mindfulness classes for people interested in helping teens (and teens themselves!), on

Courses are tailored to professionals, parents and teens. For professionals, programs include in-depth training sessions of the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction for Teens program, for example. For parents, there is "Mindful Parenting: A Course for Parents of Teens," geared toward helping reduce parental stress. Teens themselves can take part in the two-hour "The Mindful Teen" class, which teaches mindfulness skills to help reduce teenage stress.

Gina M. Biegel is a California-based psychotherapist currently in private practice in the Bay Area. She adapted the Mindfulness-Based Stressed Reduction (MBSR) program typically for adults for an adolescent population.

Classes begin as early as February for some programs. To have a look at the complete course list and available dates, as well as to register, click here.
