After successful mindfulness classes in the spring, we’re very pleased to announce that again this fall we will be offering an 8 Week Mindfulness Workshop for Teens.
Mindfulness utilizes guided meditation and other techniques (education, discussion, yoga) to help individuals learn to better experience their emotions and develop a sense of calmness. Participants will also receive strategies and exercises to continue this practice at home once the workshop ends.
While we believe that mindfulness is a very useful and healthy practice for all, this is a particularly effective technique for individuals coping with anxiety, depression, or chronic pain conditions (chronic headaches/migraines, abdominal pain, etc. . .). We strongly recommend this program for all teens who have experienced these conditions.
Our workshop will be run by Theresa St. John-Siegel, a meditation and yoga instructor with backgrounds in clinical social work and physical therapy. Theresa has spent her life exploring various methods for creating greater health and well-being in her own life and in the lives of others.
Classes will be limited to 8 students and will meet in the Westwood Office on Wednesday evenings October 11th – November 29th from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. The workshop will cost $240 for the full 8 weeks.

Enrollment Criteria:
– We ask that no siblings be enrolled in the same session
– The appropriate age range for this course are adolescents between 14 and 18 years of age.

We think this program is a tremendous opportunity to improve the short and long-term quality of life for our patients. Please email to sign up (or for more information). If you are unsure if this program is right for your child, please ask your preferred provider.
