A comprehensive and groundbreaking book that helps teenagers integrate body and mind and enhance their kinesthetic intelligence, while developing the inner resilience they need to stay balanced and thrive, now and into adulthood.

What resources do adolescents have to deal with the rise of youth problems—from bullying to eating disorders to school violence and suicide—evident in our schools today? The Embodied Teen addresses these questions in a concise and accessible style as it introduces a groundbreaking program to help students integrate body and mind and enhance their kinesthetic intelligence, while developing the inner resilience they need to stay balanced and thrive, now and into adulthood. Using the latest research as well as practical knowledge gleaned from her decades of teaching, Susan Bauer outlines a comprehensive curriculum that ranges from basic body awareness practices to more specific, experiential activities based in anatomy and physiology. A student’s own moving body becomes the lab through which to learn self-care, injury prevention, and much more. A series of “Explorations” combine movement activities and discussions that help students unlearn self-defeating body habits that impact body image and self-esteem, develop their innate body intelligence, and increase their emotional resilience.
