Eline Snel Method trains the attention. This is also known as mindfulness. The ten-week course teaches adolescents to stabilise, focus and shift their attention with a friendly, alert attitude. They are familiarised with their inner world without having to pass judgement on what they (or others) think, feel or experience. They learn how to deal with tranquillity and turmoil when it arises, how to acknowledge challenging thoughts and feelings without suppressing them or being absorbed by them, and simply give them friendly attention instead. And above all: they are taught to be kind to themselves and others.
