Reviews:

For a teen, self-compassion opens the door to loving and gratifying relationships, the full unfolding of intelligence, and deep wellbeing in all domains. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Lee-Anne Gray offers the most clear, thorough and accessible guidance in teaching teens self-compassion that I have encountered or could imagine. My prayer is that anyone who is engaged with teens find their way to this book; the ripples will awaken consciousness everywhere.
-Tara Brach, PhD, Author Radical Acceptance and True Refuge

Self-compassion is one of the most important strengths for teenagers to develop, to support resilience, well-being, and social connection. And yet it can be quite difficult to talk about and teach. Lee-Anne Gray has created an extraordinary resource for those who want to cultivate self-compassion in themselves and others. This book provides practical exercises, discussion prompts, and a deep dive into what it truly means to care about ourselves. I have not seen a better resource for teaching self-compassion, not just for teenagers, but for anyone.
- Kelly McGonigal, PhD

This book is just the ticket for parents, teachers, and counselors who know the burdens of modern teens and want to help. Self-compassion is a core emotional skill that builds emotional resilience. In this book, Dr. Gray offers a wide array of exercises that awaken self-compassion in teens, tailored specifically for challenging situations such as school stress, identity and body image problems, substance abuse, anxiety, autism and chronic illness. Written in a clear and compassionate style, caregivers will discover a powerful new approach to tricky problems. Highly recommended!"

An exquisite collection of powerful practices that parents, teachers, and therapists can all share with the teens in their lives.
- Christopher Willard, PsyD, Author Growing Up Mindful

Among the keys to self-compassion, Lee-Ann Gray teaches, are mindful awareness, inner strength, and self-regulation. In this succinct manual, parents, teachers and clinicians are guided to impart these and other essential qualities to young people. It is guidance sorely needed in our culture.
-Gabor Maté, MD Author, Scattered: How Attention Deficit Disorder Originates And What You Can Do About It

When offered by professionals with real personal experience with self-compassion, and when offered from the heart, the practices in this book can support teens in learning the skills of self-compassion. Ultimately this will free teens from the grips of what I fondly call Unkind Mind, and will allow them to thrive and bring their natural gifts in the world.
-Amy Saltzman, MD, Author, A Still Quiet Place for Teens

Self-Compassion for Teens provides a treasure trove of nurturing, compassionate activities for teens, professionals, and parents to help transform lives. Dr. Gray’s clear, tender-hearted, and caring approach shows a depth of understanding critically needed in reaching the souls of our youth and making a real difference. An invaluable asset to every library.

What an important resource for clinicians, teachers, parents and teens to promote self-kindness, creativity, and empathy.
