Reduce Stress at Home, at School, and with Friends

What is Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens?

Stress affects all of us - physically, mentally, and emotionally. What if there was a proven technique to reduce stress and increase wellness? This is where Mindfulness‐Based Stress Reduction for Teens (MBSR-T) can help.

Worldwide, tens of thousands of people have completed the MBSR program. Developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, MBSR is supported by over two decades of research. During this program you will develop critical life‐long stress management skills that have proven to reduce stress, increase awareness and concentration, improve health, and enhance quality of life.

MBSR for Teens can help with:

  • Stress at school, including studying, examinations, and presentations
  • Anger and depression
  • Stress with family and friends
  • Achieving peak performance in sports and the performing arts
  • Stress with smartphones
  • Stress and food choice
  • Drugs and alcohol

Curt has been an instructor of Mindfulness, Yoga, Tai Chi, and Qigong for more than 15 years.
