Mindfulness for Teen Anger
A Workbook to Overcome Anger and Aggression Using MBSR and DBT Skills

by Mark C. Purcell MEd, PsyD, and Jason R. Murphy, MA

School, dating, and parents are just a few of the things that can frustrate teens and cause them to lose control of their emotions. Being an adolescent can be hard, but it’s even harder when you can’t keep your cool in stressful situations. Mindfulness for Teen Anger teaches young adults how to:

  • Understand the underlying cause of their anger
  • Move past negative thoughts and emotions
  • Develop compassion toward themselves and others
  • Build positive relationships with peers, friends, and family

With the aid of proven-effective mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), this workbook shows teens how to apply various skills to resolve conflict and get along with others. Anger is a manageable emotion, and this book is a helpful guide to achieving a life of positivity and emotional balance.

Paperback, 136 pages, 8" × 10"

This is an immensely useful resource for both psychotherapists and clients. [Purcell and Murphy’s] book provides an excellent explication of cutting-edge knowledge of the mindfulness approach and its value for effective treatment of adolescent issues. We in the mental health profession will be grateful beneficiaries in years to come.
