With teens today facing unprecedented levels of toxic stress, self-compassion is one way to nurture inner wisdom, promote self-kindness, and self-heal. Christopher Germer, author of the Mindful Path to Self-Compassion says my forthcoming book, Self-Compassion for Teens: 129 Activities & Practices to Cultivate Kindness is "just the ticket for parents, teachers, and counselors who know the burdens of modern teens and want to help." Tara Brach, author of True Refuge and Radical Acceptance called it "Groundbreaking!" Stanford University psychologist, Kelly McGonigal, author of The Upside of Stress says: "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."
Powerlessness and helplessness in the face of suffering are things of the past! When armed with practices and activities that cultivate mindful awareness, self-kindness, shared humanity, and the willingness to take action to relieve suffering adult caregivers are empowered to help teens in new ways.
