FREE Mindfulness for Girls (Ages 8-10) ​Program: A weekly group setting, which empowers girls to understand emotions and ease stress.


About the Group

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 thr​oughout their lives.
