Learning to Breathe: A Summer Mindfulness Experience for Adolescents (11-14 years old)

Hosted by the Program on Integrative Medicine

Mindfulness is the practice of becoming aware of one's present-moment experience with compassion and openness as a basis for wise action. This curriculum is intended to strengthen attention and emotion regulation, cultivate wholesome emotions like gratitude and compassion, expand the repertoire of stress management skills, and help participants integrate mindfulness into daily life.

What are the program goals?

Based on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and tailored to adolescents, the empirically-based curriculum for this course, entitled Learning to BREATHE, was developed by mindfulness expert/clinical psychologist Dr. Patricia Broderick and has been endorsed by Jon Kabat-Zinn.

Research in mindfulness indicates that this program may help students improve focus, enhance self-confidence, and provide a basis for developing positive coping and time-management skills.

"These skills can help teenagers navigate effectively through a time in life that can be confusing, filled with uncertainties, and exceedingly stressful. These life-skills form the basis for building successful relationships, beginning with oneself." Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of MBSR, from forward of Learning to BREATHE.
