"I was thrilled to receive an advanced copy of Susan Albers's new book, because I knew she had included a section on sleep (activity eight) where she correctly identifies the effect of sleep on mindful eating. In addition, she gives great activities for teens--known to be incredibly sleep deprived--to participate in. This will be a great resource for anyone working with teens and mindful eating."

"The teen years can be challenging in so many ways, including struggles with body image, relationships, and emotions. Susan Albers's workbook practically tackles the unhealthy relationships teens can develop with food, and provides a much-needed resource in this area.
