Making Friends with Yourself: A Mindful Self-Compassion Program for Teens

“At long last, a self-compassion training for teens! This delightful, innovative program captures the essence of self-compassion for an age group that needs it the most.  Wholeheartedly recommended!”   Christopher Germer, PhD

 

Making Friends With Yourself (MFY) is an empirically-supported  program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion in teens. MFY teaches core principles and practices that enable teens to respond to the challenges of these critical years with kindness and self-compassion.

 

Adolescence is a time of change and growth. It is the period of life reserved for rebellion and self-discovery, but as the demands in life increase for teens, this time is often fraught with confusion, anxiety or depression. For many teens these challenges lead to disconnection and isolation.

 

In this course, teens engage in developmentally appropriate activities and carefully crafted practices and meditations, which provide them with the opportunity to learn how to navigate the emotional ups and downs of life with greater ease.   Backed by research, findings indicate increases in emotional well-being and greater resilience after taking the course.
