Mindfulness and Self-Care for Teens and Young Adults

Mindfulness and Self-Care for Teens and Young Adults

Course Brief

This course was especially developed to address stress, feelings of anxiety and other reactions that might arise in reaction to COVID-19, the uncertainty around it, and its new demands. In addition to supporting teens in managing stress daily (to help keep anxiety at bay), this course aims to help them understand and manage their own reactions to this shared experience. Finally, this class also contains mindfulness and self-care practices that can enhance both short-term coping skills and more long-term resilience.
