Abstract / Description of output

As mindfulness has become more popular and more data are available to demonstrate its efficacy in a variety of settings and conditions, it is appropriate that its use in youth populations be examined. Applied Mindfulness: Approaches in Mental Health for Children and Adolescents brings together not only the work of the authors but of leading researchers who demonstrate that mindfulness is a powerful and cost-effective tool for use in the youth population. This groundbreaking volume will find utility with every professional who cares for children and act as a tremendous resource for those who wish to use these techniques in the clinical setting.—James R.
