Dr. Amy Saltzman joins us to speak about A Still Quiet Place for Teens: A Mindfulness Workbook to Ease Stress and Difficult Emotions.
If memory serves, being a teenager can be kinda challenging. Going through that may occur before one is introduced to any kind of contemplative practice, but more and more, a younger generation is being given the gift of mindfulness.
