What are leaders in the field saying?

“Himelstein and Saul offer a rich and highly practical guide while providing much more than a how-to book. Clearly based in research, personal mindfulness practice, and years of clinical experience, here is a raw, honest, fearless program that promises to engage adolescents from all backgrounds. Deeply rooted in both mindfulness practice and science, the program skillfully integrates meditation, skits, role-plays, psycho-education, metaphors, acronyms, stories, poems and even formal debates, while offering clinicians a reliable structure and guidance balanced with trust in one’s own clinical expertise and personal mindfulness practice. This is the resource so many of us have been seeking, and this is a program that will undoubtedly change the course of countless young lives. A deep bow to my colleagues.”

—Sarah Bowen, PhD, assistant professor of psychology at Pacific University in Portland, Oregon, and author of Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention: A Clinician’s Guide

“Imagine taking the extensive experience of someone who has helped a range of high-risk youth, combining this with the ancient practice of mindfulness training, and then weaving these together beautifully with steps proven by science to help enhance emotional well-being and reduce self-destructive behaviors. This is the magnificent mixture you have in your hands in Himelstein and Saul’s important guide, which offers step-by-step group lessons to support the healthy development of a resilient and insightful mind.”

—Daniel J. Siegel, MD, author of Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain and The Mindful Therapist: A Clinician’s Guide to Mindsight and Neural Integration

“If you are working with adolescents suffering from addiction, this is the book you need. Himelstein and Saul have done a stellar job of gathering and imparting the mindfulness-based treatment methodology. Read this book, be mindful, and serve the truth.”

—Noah Levine, author Dharma Punx and Refuge Recovery: A Buddhist Path to Recovering from Addiction

“A truly authentic, sensitive, savvy, and invaluable curriculum for transforming young lives and the lives of those who are drawn to it.”

—Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of the Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Illness

“Based on years of experience working with and listening to young people, Himelstein and Saul present a curriculum that is well-designed and user friendly, respectful of young people, and effective in building self-awareness, self-control, and community connection. An important resource for every professional in the substance abuse field. Highly recommended!”
