Stress – a universal issue for students and parents alike. Here is an opportunity to learn some evidence based practices to help manage daily stress.

Distinguished speaker Lorraine Hobbs, MS. CHom, Director of Family and Youth Programs, from the UCSD Center for Mindfulness is presenting.  The Center for Mindfulness is a program within the Center for Integrative Medicine and the UCSD Department of Psychiatry. Mindfulness is a way of learning to pay attention to what is happening in your life and a practice or method to cultivate clarity, insight and understanding.

Ms. Hobbs and staff will discuss the benefits of mindfulness and share essential tools in stress reduction to use anywhere and anytime to overcome difficult situations, make better choices and control one’s emotions.  Additionally, parents and students will learn more about the adolescent brain and why teens “push back” in the teen years.
