Bridging the Hearts and Minds of Youth Conference 2012
Available as a physical DVD.
Over the last decade, an increasing number of parents, educators, and clinicians have studied and experienced the benefits of bringing mindfulness practice to youth. To help develop best practices within this growing movement, the University of California San Diego's School of Medicine and Center for Mindfulness, along with Stressed Teens, developed the Bridging Hearts and Minds of Youth conference, which took place in February 2012. This first-of-its-kind conference was designed to engage professionals in the ongoing discussion of the field as well as to assist their professional growth.
