About Stressed Teens and the MBSR-T Program

Stressed Teens is a business that began in 2004 and disseminates the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens Program (MBSR-T) in varying forms. MBSR-T is an adaptation of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program for adults (Kabat-Zinn). Like MBSR, MBSR-T is based on secular adaptations of mindfulness practices with roots in Eastern meditation traditions. MBSR-T is also strongly influenced by mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (Segal, Williams and Teasdale)

MBSR-T has strong foundations in developmental theory and considers the cognitive and attentional abilities of youth ages 13 to 18. Both formal and informal mindfulness practices are taught, taking into account the cultural life of today's teenagers, for whom changes occur rapidly in how they form relationships and allocate their attention.
The formal practices are similar to those in adult MBSR, but their duration is shortened to accomodate the attention span of adolescents. MBSR-T maintains the integrity of its foundations in psychology and mindfulness, while creating interventions pertinent to today's 21st century teen.

MBSR-T has been used and researched in a number of settings: in- and after-school, outpatient therapeutic settings, autistic spectrum disorder clinics, positive youth developmental programs and pediatric hospitals, among tohers. It is appropriate for individual, family and group settings (clinical or educational). It can be used as a stand-alone program or as an adjunct to toher forms of treatment and modalities. The intention for MBSR-T is for teens to learn skills and tools that will help them function more adaptively and improve their quality of life.
