<Today’s Mindfulness> Anyone, anytime, anywhere


<Today’s Mindfulness> was created for anyone to enjoy mindfulness in daily life. It aims to free ourselves from worries and endless thoughts by focusing on the simple cards to be mindful with anyone, at anytime and anywhere, unlike difficult religious books or lectures. 


We often see that Western individuals who are more familiar with scientific approach to mindfulness get deeper enlightenment. Enlightenment comes from a moment, not always from a zen meditation.

“DBT Skills Manual for Adolescents” was published.”

In 2017, “DBT Skills Manual for Adolescents” was published.

Dr. Allec Miller is a DBT expert who trains thousands of trainee clinical psychologists and he researched DBT, adolescents, child abuse and borderline personality disorder. 


Although DBT was being applied to adolescents due to a growing interest in adolescents’ behavioral problems, Dr. Jill Rathus and Dr. Allec Miller were disheartened that the treatment did not consider the psychological factors specific to adolescents. This became their motivation to develop and to publish “DBT Skills Manual for Adolescents”, which recognizes adolescents’ emotional and cognitive development and its difference to adults.


DBT for adolescents has brought therapeutic effects to adolescents with emotional dysregulation, borderline personality disorder and behavioral problems, but also to typical adolescents. The effectiveness of the treatment was proved by various research papers and clinical institutions from all around the world, which suggests that the strategies and skills in this book would be a useful tool for DBT Skills Trainer who has adolescent clients.
