“This is an amazing, practical addition to the growing resources to help children and adolescents with a range of neurodevelopmental and emotional difficulties develop specific skills to manage stress, tolerate frustration, and gain more awareness of blocks to obtaining what they want in life.”

-Laurie C. Dietzel, Ph.D. , Co-Author, Late, Lost, & Unprepared

“She takes you through all ages and stages of development with specific directions on how to use and implement her mindfulness techniques. This coupled with the explanation of neuroscience adds to the richness and beauty of this amazing book.”

-Susan P. Epstein, LCSW, Parent Coach . Author of 55 Creative Approaches for Challenging & Resistant Children & Adolescents: Techniques, Activities, Worksheets, Over 60 Techniques, Activities & Worksheets for Challenging Children & Adolescents

“With our fast paced world, Mindfulness has been left out of the equation in our homes and in our schools. Debra is taking it back to basics in her brilliantly written book that makes neurobiology fun and easy to understand!”

-Julie Kleinhans, Confidence and Youth Empowerment Expert

“Burdick breaks down the more than 150 tools and techniques she offers into categories based on age making it easier to choose the appropriate ones whether you are working with a 5 year old or a 15 year old.”

-Lawrence Edwards, PhD, LMHC, BCN Senior Fellow

“This “user-friendly” book offers clinicians a wealth of “hands on,” practical step-by-step exercises and strategies, supported by numerous handouts to use with clients.”

-Judith Belmont, MS , Author of The Tips and Tools for the Therapeutic Toolbox Series

“The skills in this book can be used in session or as "homework assignments" for younger clients and their families. They will insure that the skills acquired in the psychotherapy or neurofeedback session are integrated, assimilated and utilized!”

- Stephen Larsen, Ph.D. , Author of The Neurofeedback Solution

"Debra Burdick provides invaluable tools that every clinician, teacher, and parent can use in caring for children with mental health issues as well as in helping kids and teens through normal developmental challenges. Thoughtful, clear, and concise, she shares practical techniques for teaching children awareness of their bodies, thoughts, and feelings as the stepping stones to improve attention, emotion regulation, self-esteem, and the ability to relate to others with kindness and compassion. A much needed guide for our children, our times, and ourselves."

-Patricia L. Gerbarg, MD , Assistant Clinical Professor in Psychiatry, New York Medical College, Co-author of The Healing Power of the Breath and Non-Drug Treatments for ADHD

"Outstanding, thoughtful, and well-researched guide for working with children. These methods are applicable to the treatment of children under stress who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorder, medical illness, or other conditions. Excellent integration of neuroscience, child development, and mindfulness, with attention to the nitty-gritty of sound clinical work. Highly recommended for parents, educators, and healthcare professionals."

-Richard P. Brown, MD , Associate Clinical Professor in Psychiatry, Columbia University Medical College, Co-author of The Healing Power of the Breath and Non-Drug Treatments for ADHD
