This week we're joined by Gina Biegel, LMFT, an expert in working with teens related to stress. We talk about the challenges today's teens are facing (preCOVID and now), why she recommends mindfulness, some practical ways for teens to cope with stress, and how we can best support them. Gina is the founder of StressedTeens.com, author of various books about teens & stress, and the developer of mindfulness-based stress reduction for teens (MBSR-T).
