Many teens struggle with difficult feelings and thoughts — and sometimes, when these thoughts feel overwhelming, you just want to feel something else. This is where self-harming behaviors, such as cutting, come in. But there are better ways to manage your pain. This book will help guide you.
In this workbook, you'll learn about the power of mindfulness, and how it can help you create your own special space for simply being with your thoughts.

Pain is a normal part of life — it's how you react to this pain that really matters. Let this workbook from the Instant Help Solutions series guide you toward better strategies for dealing with stress and emotional pain, so you can be safe, happy, and in control of your life.
