Review

“I heartily recommend this workbook! Gina Biegel has crafted a series of mindfulness practices and reflections that are easily accessible, inviting, and wise. Teens who take the time to ‘work’ this workbook will gain insights about mindfulness, stress, and the mind-body connection that should benefit and serve them for years to come.”
—Jeff Brantley, MD, director of the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program at Duke Integrative Medicine and coauthor of Five Good Minutes® in Your Body

From the Publisher

In The Stress Reduction Workbook for Teens, a psychotherapist specializing in mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) shows overwhelmed and stressed-out teen readers how mindfulness skills can help them relax, prioritize, and keep calm during stressful times.

More About the Author

Gina M. Biegel, MA, LMFT, is a California-based psychotherapist currently in private practice in the Bay Area. She adapted the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program typically for adults for an adolescent population, and is the founder and creator of Stressed Teens, a program using the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens (MBSR-T) program. MBSR-T has proven to be an efficacious and evidence-based program for adolescents as demonstrated through her research published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology in 2009 and in Psychological Assessment in 2011. She conducts trainings, workshops and conferences on MBSR/MBSR-T with a variety of populations including professionals, teachers, parents, and teens in the U.S. and internationally. A more recent area of work is in bringing mindfulness into the California Elementary School system through her role as a member of the Research Advisory Board for Mindful Schools and assessed the effectiveness of such a program. She is also exploring brain-imaging work at Stanford University with adolescents who practice MBSR-T. Ms. Biegel is interested in expanding MBSR-T into other teen populations in a variety of settings while assessing potential efficacy, and dispensing the MBSR-T curriculum so that professionals trained in MBSR-T can utilize this intervention in their own work. Through MBSR-T, it is intended that adolescents will reduce their pain and suffering and improve their overall functioning and quality of life. Ms. Biegel participates on the Board of a number of related organizations: Mind Body Awareness Project (MBA), Association for Mindfulness in Education (AME), Mindfulness in Education Network (MiEN), Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme). Her first book, a workbook, entitled, The Stress Reduction Workbook for Teens: Mindfulness Skills to Help You Deal With Stress, is currently available as well as her audio CD, Being. Please visit her website, www.stressedteens.com, www.facebook.com/stressedteens, and follow her on Twitter @stressedteens. Enjoy her blog on Mindful.org On Teen Life and her work on Sharecare.com as a Sharecare expert.

Format: Paperback
I am a professor at University of California, Davis. For the last 10 years I have been impressed with the Stress Reduction training using Mindfulness. First developed my Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at University of Massachusetts, the training has proven effective at reducing the stress levels of thousands of people around the world. Many health plans now have added a Stress Reduction course because of its proven effects at enhancing health and well-being. Now Gina Biegel has tailored this training to fit the massive stresses that teenagers face today. The book has come out of her own work with teens, and is backed up by her research in scientific journals. I highly recommend this book to every teenager and parent. I wish I had read it when I was a teen!

Format: Paperback
As a mindfulness-based psychotherapist working with adolescents and their families, I find this workbook to be an invaluable tool for teaching mindfulness to my clients. This workbook is useful in conjunction with a structured MBSR class, and can also be used alone. It encourages healthy dialogue and self-reflection and I recommend it highly for anyone working with the adolescent population.

Format: Paperback
This is a really great workbook for everyone, and especially teens because the language, activities and insights feel open and real. As a teacher, I can imagine my students benefiting deeply from these stress reduction techniques, and from the self-reflection opportunities. Truly it reaches across age groups, I'm finding it a very helpful practice for myself. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a therapist that frequently works with teenagers, I found this book to be of immediate clinical use. The activities in this book are easily used with adolescents that are motivated to change and with some creativity less motivated adolescents will engage in the stress reduction activities. It is written in a simple, easy to read language that is appropriate for a 13-17yr old. Further, many of the activities as consistent with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and can be used as part of a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) treatment plan. Well worth the price!!

This book can be for anyone! Not just teens! It's easy-to-read format is fun!
It does require some thought, but in a good way!
Not to the point of exhaustion.
Page 10 is one of my favorite pages in the book.
Give it a try!
Also, the language isn't hard. Easy words.
The print is a nice size, too! This book is a game-changer,
and a life enhancer all in one! It helps w/ my sleep and my
eating! Before this book I was sleeping for only 6 hours straight.
Now I'm getting 7 or 8 hours in a row! I'm amazed!

Format: Paperback
I have been a Child and Adolescent therapist for several years. I have found this book by Gina Biegel to be very helpful when working with teens. This book is written in a format that teens can relate to and it does not talk down to them. It is written in a way that talks directly to teens without using words they would not understand.
I find the self help activities to be very well constructed and easy for teens to understand and implement. There are so many teens that deal with stress and this book gives them a roadmap to diffrent coping options. This book will be a great tool in my practice.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Steve Flowers Mft on September 15, 2010
Format: Paperback
I am a mindfulness-based psychotherapist and mindfulness-based stress reduction instructor who has been treating adults and adolescents for over 30 years and highly recommend this workbook. This book offers such a wealth of wisdom and skillful guidance for teens! Gina's depth of experience and understanding enables her to offer practical skills in a language and manner that teens can appreciate, resonate with and above all incorporate into their lives. From my experience there are very few people that can express and teach the foundations of mindfulness-based stress reduction as well as Gina does. This workbook can greatly benefit teens as well as the parents and teachers who want to see those they care for thrive in a difficult world. A must-buy for parents of teens that are struggling with stress!

Format: Paperback
The Stress Reduction Workbook for Teens is a welcome and valuable addition to the field of adolescent well-being. Gina Biegel introduces Mindfulness to teens in a highly accessible, well-sequenced workbook that is firmly grounded in Mindfulness practice, theory and research. The workbook neatly weaves conceptual and factual information with experiential exercises into a format that allows teens to apply these to their own lives and lived experience. The workbook could be used effectively by young people on their own, or with the support and guidance of parents, counsellors, or teachers - Parents and professionals could learn a lot from this book too!
