Guest Talk: Mindfulness Interventions with Youth: A Meta-Analysis, with Sarah Zoogman

Sarah Zoogman will discuss findings of a recent meta-analysis (Zoogman, Goldberg, Hoyt, and Miller, 2012, under review) that examined the effectiveness of mindfulness interventions with youth. A meta-analysis combines findings from independent studies to evaluate treatment effectiveness. The talk will include an overview of mindfulness interventions, the research findings, and the implications of these findings for future mindfulness interventions with children and adolescents.
