"What a great resource! The prompts are engaging and simple. This book is designed so beautifully, and everything is written with such warm and relatable language. I cannot wait to use this with my teen and college-aged clients! I am sure they will love it as much as I do!" —Dr. Jade Hunter PhD, LPC, LMFT, associate, counselor, and owner of Dr. J Therapy PLLC

"This is a great practical guide to introduce these core concepts of emotional regulation for teens. Well written and easy to use." —Dr. Jason Doorish, LPC-S

"'Wow!' That was my first thought after reading Dr. Dingus' 5 Minute Mindfulness Journal for Teens. I was blown away by the art as well as the engaging questions. In working with teens, I feel it is imperative to have prompts that are concise and thought-provoking as those questions tend to elicit responses with the same characteristics. The exercises are simple yet powerful, as well as her engagement of social media and what their experiences are with apps. As a clinician, I recommend this journal, and as a father of a teenager, I cannot recommend this enough." —René García, LMFT, LPC, LCDC
