Kid, Teen, and Family Programs

Building skills as a family and as part of a community.

What would it look like if your entire family, together, was on the path of actively learning critical life skills like awareness, presence, equanimity, and kindness?

What would it be like to be part of a community of families with the very same goals?

PRACTICE San Francisco is here to find out.

Our full kid/family schedule is on pause for the summer and will resume in the fall!

For the Whole Family:

For Kids & Teens:

Mighty Minds

Give your child the gift of learning research-supported behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness strategies proven to be effective in reducing and/or preventing stress, anxiety, and negative mood… before your child may really need them later in life.

Mighty Minds groups introduce kids to mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral strategies helpful in effectively managing anxiety, stress, anger/frustration, and other emotions. Through fun experiential activities, kids learn the kind of life skills that support resilience, compassion, persistence, and self-awareness.

Mighty Minds is run by PRACTICE San Francisco’s founder, Nina Kaiser, Ph.D., a licensed psychologist with over 15 years of experience in working with children and families.

5-class series price: $700.  Please note that this is a reimbursable medical expense; families with PPO health insurance, medical flexible spending accounts (FSAs) or health savings accounts (HSAs) can request documentation to submit for reimbursement.

Summer Mighty Minds is now OPEN!

Summer Mighty Minds is serving children completing K through 6th grade! Summer Mighty Minds operates in an intensive format and involves five 90-minute sessions on five consecutive days (Monday to Friday).

This year, we will be running the program during five weeks (6/17-6/21, 6/24-6/28, 7/29-8/2, 8/5-8/9, and 8/12-8/16).  Groups all will run either 1:30pm-3pm or 3:30pm-5:00pm.  Cost for the program is $700, reimbursable by PPO health insurance, FSA, or HSA.  We do summer registrations on a rolling basis and circle back to you with confirmation as we generate groups; no payment is due until your child’s registration is confirmed.  At that time, you can opt either to pay a non-refundable $100 deposit (with the remaining $600 due at the first group session) or to pay the entire $700 cost of the program in full.

Please fill out this form to provide information on your child and indicate your scheduling availability.  Please note that the more flexible you are able to be about dates/times, the more likely it is that we will be able to match your child to a session.  

We are reviewing registrations on a rolling basis as we match children to groups based on age, needs, and family schedules.  We will reach out to you directly with next steps once we form a group that is a good fit for your child!
