Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for Anxious Children

Mindfulness is an invaluable skill in helping children to calm down and to be aware of their emotions without reacting to them. By learning to harness their attention and to direct it to the present moment, they are able to build an entirely different relationship to their thoughts and feelings. Kids and teens use these skills to change their reactions to their distorted, inaccurate thoughts by learning to recognize their negative thinking patterns and then understanding how to dispute them. With both mindfulness and cognitive tools, children begin to  relate to their day-to-day experiences more effectively to decrease their anxiety.
