The Mindfulness Toolkit for Counselors, Teachers, Coaches and Clinicians of Youth is designed specifically for use by, and with, older children, teens, and young adults. It is written for adults who work with youth in any setting who can benefit from mindfulness skills. It is not just for therapists working with kids with serious mental disorders or antisocial behavior, but for less troubled youth as well. The authors use the term "facilitators" to cover the wide range of people that can use The Mindfulness Toolkit. It is designed to make mindfulness more fun and engaging by offering a variety of mindfulness exercises and activities that have an innate appeal to youth such as sports, nature, adventure, and discovery. At the same time, The Mindfulness Toolkit is designed to facilitate autonomy, a crucial developmental goal for all adolescents, by emphasizing each individual’s preferences, choices, and learning pace when selecting and mastering mindfulness techniques that work best for each youth.
All kinds of facilitators can use the book. The Mindfulness Toolkit for Counselors, Teachers, Coaches and Clinicians of Youth can be used with any teenager, not just ones with "serious" problems, and can be used by professionals and laypersons alike.
Chapter 1 provides an overview of the program. We have made this chapter available for you to review.
The Mindfulness Workbook is filled with a rich variety of thirty exercises and activities that are designed to appeal to youth, such as sports, nature, adventure, and discovery.
The workbook emphasizes individual autonomy and competency. The Toolkit offers multiple pathways for learning mindfulness, which can accommodate the differing learning styles of individual teens and, in particular, can be applied strategically to oppositional and treatment resistant youth.
The core concept is to expose youth to a variety of mindfulness skills so that individuals can choose the coping “tools” that they find most practical and effective for their own personal “mindfulness toolkit.”
