FREE Mindfulness for Girls (Ages 8-10) Program: A
weekly group setting, which empowers girls to understand emotions and ease
The Queens College Psychological
Center (QCPC) would like to let you know about a program for girls (ages 8-10
years) and their families. QCPC’s “Mindfulness for Girls” seeks to
teach a variety of empirically supported mindfulness practices to young girls
to enhance stress management, social skills development, emotional
intelligence, academic performance, and cognitive functions. Mindfulness is
open, moment-to-moment awareness held without judgment, even when what is
occurring may be unwanted. Mindfulness offers great benefits to health and
well-being by shifting the nature and perspective of a child’s relationship
with their own experience. This group seeks to support young girls against the
stresses of modern society and give them skills that will benefit them
throughout their lives.
