Read information about the authorDr. Amy Saltzman is a holistic physician, mindfulness coach, scientist, wife, mother, devoted student of transformation, long-time athlete, and occasional poet. Her passion is supporting people of all ages in enhancing their well being, and discovering the Still Quiet Place within. She is recognized by her peers as a visionary and pioneer in the fields of holistic medicine and mindfulness for youth.
Dr. Saltzman has offered mindfulness to young people from pre-K to college undergrads in socioeconomically diverse school, and community settings. She has conducted two research studies evaluating the benefits of teaching mindfulness to child-parent pairs, and to children in low-income elementary schools; these research projects were conducted in collaboration with the Department of Psychology at Stanford University.
Dr. Saltzman’s ongoing offerings are designed to answer the following questions:
Do children and teens benefit when they learn the life skills of mindfulness and remain familiar with the “Still Quiet Place” within?
If young people learn to observe their thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations, are they less vulnerable to the unhealthy effects of stress?
If children and teens are able to access their natural sense of peace and to trust their own inner wisdom, are they less susceptible to harmful peer influences and less likely to look for relief in potentially risky behaviors?
When young people practice mindfulness does it enhance their natural emotional intelligence, increase respectful communication and compassionate action, support them in developing healthy relationships, and contributing their gifts to the world?
Dr. Saltzman is founder and director of the Association for Mindfulness in Education, and a founding member of the Northern California Advisory Committee on Mindfulness. In 2002, Dr. Saltzman established a private practice in Menlo Park , CA , where she provides holistic medical care and individual mindfulness instruction to children, teens and adults. She also offers presentations and courses for young children, teens, parents, educators, and health care professionals.
