The purpose of this website is to provide support and information about bringing mindfulness to youth, in particular, but also to adults. Some topics may be useful to you in general, such as ones about the benefits of mindfulness for emotion regulation and the importance of social-emotional learning. This website also introduces you to a specific mindfulness curriculum called Learning to BREATHE. L2B is a sequenced program that can be used in many settings (e.g. schools, universities, clinical settings, after-school programs, residential facilities, etc.). It has 6 themes, which can be taught in 6, 12, 18 or any number of sessions, depending upon your time and needs.
If you explore the links at the left, you can read about the research that has been done on L2B, including a NEW Study of ethnically diverse, at-risk students. Read the interview with Karen Bluth here.You can read about some teachers who are using the program with youth as well as adults. Please take a look at the new L2B Book Review in the recent NASP Communique published by the National Association of School Psychologists. You may also enjoy seeing the photos of some of the teachers and researchers who are working to bring mindfulness to adolescents and others. They are wonderful partners who work to help youth manage stress, strengthen their emotion regulation and attention, and improve their well-being.
