Using Yoga Therapy to Promote Mental Health in Children and Adolescents Summary

Using Yoga Therapy to Promote Mental Health in Children and Adolescents by Michelle Furie

Using Yoga Therapy to Promote Mental Health in Children and Adolescents outlines a framework of clinical yoga therapy practice that addresses the whole child, rather than solely the symptoms.

The book explores different developmental stages in the growth of children and adolescents, and gives general guidelines on how to adapt yoga practices for the different age groups.

  • Topics covered are chronic pain; mood regulation; eating disorders and body image issues; trauma; suicidal ideation and non-suicidal self-injurious behavior; sensory integration; developmental disabilities and hallucinations.
  • Each chapter includes related anecdotes, a review of the research literature and sample yoga practices for symptoms presented.
  • A practice library containing a fully illustrated index of all asanas, pranayamas, and other yoga practices ensure the book provides enough practical guidance.
  • Case studies throughout the book demonstrate practical applications.

This book will help yoga therapists and psychotherapists interested in the benefits of yoga understand the latest research, and how it impacts on what they do, thereby giving them the confidence necessary for working with these age groups.

She holds her Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) status through the State of Colorado. She has a specialty in trauma therapy, as well as extensive training and experience using mindfulness-based therapy models such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). She has been involved in several yoga research projects.
