The Mindfulness Toolkit for Counselors, Teachers, Coaches and Clinicians of Youth
Jack Apsche and Jerry L. Jennings
The Mindfulness Toolkit 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.”
