The heart of this week’s episode is relationships. We all need people in our lives, but let’s be honest—sometimes people can be a little bit hard to deal with. For teenagers, the people they’re closest to can be sources of resilience and strength, but at times they can also be sources of anxiety and stress. Discover tips from Dr. Joey Fung, Fuller Associate Professor of Psychology, on healthy practices of mindfulness for teenagers and parents alike.
