Dr. Barnes is a faculty member at the Center as well as at the University's Department of Pediatrics. Tune in to learn more about how all children can benefit from mindfulness practices!

"All children want to develop and grow and get better at things, so it's a fun way to work together to say, 'Look do you want to learn something cool?' and kids obviously want to learn something cool," says Dr. Barnes.
