Additional Information

Faced with balancing school, extracurricular activities, part-time jobs, social interactions, and family issues, teens today often struggle to stay afloat. Those who have suffered trauma and those whose communities are under-resourced or unsafe may face additional stressors. Caring adults can help teens alleviate stress and depression symptoms by encouraging development of positive coping skills.

Join our free webinar live or on demand as Amy Saltzman, M.D., teaches adults how to identify stress and depression in teens, use the power of mindfulness-based stress reduction in difficult times, and truly listen without judgement. During the webinar, caring adults will also learn how to respond—rather than react—to teens during emotionally-charged conversations. Amy Saltzman M.D., is a holistic physician, mindfulness coach, scientist, wife, mother, devoted student of transformation, long-time athlete, and occasional poet. Her passion is supporting people of all ages in enhancing their wellbeing and discovering the “Still Quiet Place” within. She is recognized by her peers as a visionary and pioneer in the fields of mindfulness for youth and holistic medicine.
