Editorial Reviews

Review


"In sum, Mindfulness for the Next Generation is a useful guide for those readers
looking to bring mindfulness education to the emerging adult college-student population. It
provides a clear rationale for why this intervention may be effective for emerging adults as
well as a clear implementation structure. It is likely most useful for those professionals or
paraprofessionals in campus and mental health settings who have some experience with
mindfulness and want to establish a mindfulness class to promote well-being and reduce
stress for emerging adults." -- Joshua D. Lepore, PsycCRITIQUES

Format: Paperback
Rogers and Maytan have done us all a great service in creating this truly outstanding guidebook!!

I work in a college counseling center and, over the past 12 years, I have tried to teach my students mindfulness in 3 minute snippets during their appointments--Needless to say that has been a marginally effective and minimalist approach. Now, with having read this very fluently written and easy to approach handbook, I feel ready to be able to move on to doing this in a group setting.

Mindfulness for the Next Generation is a clearly written, well organized, method-based concise guide for professionals seeking to teach mindfulness to college students. A great deal of the pleasure in reading this book came from it being well written and how it approaches teaching mindfulness using intuitive skills that most experienced mental health providers are familiar with.

I especially appreciated having chapter summary boxes labelled as CHAPTER KEY POINTS listing important take home messages; this makes it easy to bookmark pages and quickly peek at them during sessions.

Another important feature is the emphasis on the use of stories as a way to learn; the authors talk about the value of this in application of teaching mindfulness and meditation, however also apply stories as a very effective tool for the reader (eg; give clinical vignettes about students, also personal narratives are interspersed from time to time). I discussed this with a couple of other colleagues in other parts of the country who read it and they also felt it was excellent!

This book is a highly enjoyable, fast, thought-provoking read from which I walked away feeling I had gained some important and easily replicable skills. Definitely worth my time!!

I am hoping Rogers will be selling her mindfulness exercise CDs soon.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Eating Disorder Therapist on August 2, 2012
Format: Paperback
Mindfulness for the Next Generation is a MUST read for college health professionals who are seeking creative methods for addressing the range of mental health or normal developmental concerns that emerge in the college population. I am a firm believer in the use of workshops in a college mental health setting and this book is a perfect teaching tool for those who may wish to bring mindfulness courses into their center. I use mindfulness regularly in my individual practice with disordered eating and after reading this book, would certainly add a referral to a mindfulness class to my range of interventions. As a workshop facilitator, I particularly appreciate the research chapter on mindfulness and the helpful responses to the specific questions that a speaker may encounter in a workshop. I also appreciate that the authors have specifically addressed the barriers and challenges that may arise when teaching mindfulness to college students - will certainly benefit as I put my own workshop together!

Format: Paperback
This book provides an excellent program for those of us teaching mindfulness and meditation to university students and young professionals. There are a number of books that are written for students themselves, but nothing that teaches teachers/chaplains/counselors how to teach. To be honest, when I began working as a Buddhist chaplain in a university setting three years ago, I simply had to wing it, taking my best guess as to what university students needed to hear. When I started reading Rogers and Maytan's book, I found light bulbs going off in my head. Throughout, I was nodding and thinking, "Yes, this is exactly right. This is perfect."

Though the book is directly useful to professionals in the field of psychology and wellness, it is also a tremendous resource for those of us in pastoral counseling, spiritual development, ministry, and chaplaincy. This is a must-read for Buddhist chaplains. At the same time, those professionals in other faith traditions, be they Catholic, Hindu, Muslim, etc., will find this book valuable in giving them ways to help their students develop skills in reducing stress, finding authenticity, and tapping into the wisdom of their own religious tradition.

Highly recommended! As a psychologist working at college counseling setting for years and experienced the difficulty of introducing mindfulness techniques to students in the past, this program/book is excellently customer-designed for college students and created a big hit in the university community the very first time I've done it. Students loved it and attended every session!...

It very hand-on and user friendly, probably not too hard for someone who does not have a whole lot of experiences practicing meditation themselves. Of course, if the leader has previous experiences, they can talk more convincingly. It was a pleasure for me to read and lead the group, keep myself back to meditation, feeling grounded, and revisited or obtained some answers the first times for the questions I had long ago as a student in meditation class.
