Lions Roar : May 2012
SHAMBHALA SUN MAY 2012 76 Greenberg says mindfulness has some- thing else going for it. “Mindfulness is not just a series of practical techniques.

Another prevention center program focuses on improving parenting skills. Parents take a class once a week for seven weeks. They’re first asked to do short
