About This Project

Teens exposed to frequent intense parental conflict may develop self-regulatory problems. Past preventative efforts aimed to improve marital communication. We will conduct the first study intervening directly with adolescents from high-conflict homes. Mindfulness training will build teens’ regulatory capacity to reduce stress and anxiety. This approach may help the many youth at risk of life-long problems because they are not yet equipped to handle the stress of their high-conflict homes.
