Reviews

I love Dr. Amy's view of mindfulness and loving-kindness as skills which you can learn, practice, and hone--and that the 'gift of mindfulness

; Dr. Amy's voice comes through so sincerely. I know the book is addressed to teens but I still feel like I personally got a lot out of it, and I think pretty much anyone I know, at any age, would benefit from reading the book and following along with the activities. --Cora, age twenty-one, first-year master's degree student at the University of California, Santa Barbara's Bren School of Environmental Science and Management In this book, Dr. Amy talks about many of the things I learned in my one-on-one sessions with her. It was a great refresher on my mindfulness skills, and I think this book will successfully lead many other teens into living mindfully. --Francesca, age twelve, nationally competitive diver Amy Saltzman's workbook is an incredible way for you to learn skills for staying calm and present through any challenging situations life will eventually throw your way--in school, at parties, or on the field. Mindfulness doesn't need to be complicated, time consuming, or weird, and Saltzman can help you fit it into all of the important aspects of your life. I look forward to sharing this gift with my own teenaged clients and students. --Christopher Willard, PsyD, author of Child's Mind and Mindfulness for Teen Anxiety Amy Saltzman has again provided the world with a wonderful contribution, revealing how teens can learn a no-nonsense way to reduce overwhelming stress and bring more focus, health, and resilience into their lives. What is also in it for you as teen, or for anyone who might care to learn from this magnificent teacher, is a self-knowledge and set of social and emotional skills that will last a lifetime. You will learn from a kind and thoughtful teacher how to build these same qualities in yourself. What are you waiting for? --Daniel J. Siegel, MD, author of The Mindful Brain, The Mindful Therapist, The Developing Mind, Brainstorm, and Mindsight; executive director of the Mindsight Institute; founding codirector of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center; and clinical professor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA Amy Saltzman has offered yet another invaluable resource for teens dealing with struggles of adolescent life, from test-anxiety to trauma. This workbook offers practical, easy-to-read activities and practices that are innovative and accessible to teens of all different sorts of backgrounds. These time-tested mindfulness practices--from easily remembered acronyms to innovative ways for understanding and practicing mindfulness--can help teens deal with the struggles of daily life and become aware of the power they have inside themselves. Highly recommended for teens, parents, educators, and therapists. --Sam Himelstein, PhD, psychologist at the Alameda County Juvenile Justice Center, founder of the Center for Adolescent Studies, and coauthor of Mindfulness-Based Substance Abuse Treatment for Adolescents Clear, accessible, and to the point, Amy Saltzman's worksheets deftly translate her years of experience working with youth and supporting mindfulness educators into something every parent, teacher, or clinician can use to share mindfulness with the teenagers in their lives. --Susan Kaiser Greenland, author of The Mindful Child, and cofounder of Inner Kids If you want less stress, more peace, and an easier time navigating the challenging years of adolescence, read this book.
