About the Author

Sam Himelstein, PhD, is a licensed psychologist, public speaker, and author who specializes in working with adolescents and their families via private practice, community organizations, and in juvenile justice settings. He and travels the world offering workshops on related topics. He lives in Oakland, CA.


Sam Himelstein has written more than a skillful methodology for supporting mindfulness in troubled youth. He has developed an integrated approach that includes culturally sensitive psychotherapy, various types of meditation practices, and specifically- focused mindfulness activities, all of which are highly relevant to the experience of adolescents struggling with social marginalization, discrimination, and daily micro/macro aggressions. This book represents the next step in our field: teaching inward attention, mindful awareness, and self- acceptance, but also focusing on 'outside' challenges and harsh social phenomena that add to the client's suffering.--John Briere, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry & the Behavioral Sciences, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California; Director, USC Adolescent Trauma Training Center (USC- ATTC)
This is a ground- breaking resource for anyone teaching mindfulness to teens. Drawing upon years of hard- won insight, Himelstein illuminates why mindfulness can help youth who are struggling with trauma, including powerful adaptations that ensure meditations are trauma- informed. It's a book I've been waiting for and am thrilled to recommend.--David Treleaven, Ph.D., author of Trauma- Sensitive Mindfulness: Practices for Safe and Transformative Healing
