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.

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!

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.

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!!

My teen gave this 2 thumbs down. She said they were doing activities like this with the guidance counselor in elementary school and that no self respecting high schooler would use it. It would be good for middle school at the oldest.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Frankly, I felt very insulted when my mom bought this for me. When I said I was stressed out about school all needed was understanding nod, not this. Writing in this book does not help stress! Nothing stops the on coming stress of SATs, physics tests, and college applications. This books talks to you like a five year old, any self respecting teen wouldn't be caught dead using this. I would say using this for somebody who is just learning to read would be a better fit. Also if you're reading this mom, please take this book off the living room shelf, I worry that guests think I'm sort of anxiety-prone weirdo. Instead of telling my parents how I feel, next time I'll just go up to my room and study.
Please don't buy this for your teen, it's an insult.

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.

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!
