In a peer-reviewed clinical research study, MBSR-T was shown, compared to those receiving treatment-as-usual, that even at research follow-up that 80% of the teens in the MBSR-T group no longer had the diagnosis they came in with compared to 2% in the treatment-as-usual group (JCCP; 10/09).
She is an expert and pioneer of bringing mindfulness-based approaches to youth. She is the author of the Stress Reduction Workbook for Teens: Mindfulness Skills to Help You Deal with Stress. She also has a mindfulness practice audio CD, Mindfulness for Teens: Meditation Practices to Reduce Stress and Promote Well-Being to complement the MBSR-T program.
