The Yoga-Based Psychotherapy Group (YBPG) protocol was developed by the Mind/Body Clinic at the Family Center at Kennedy Krieger Institute for children 8-12 years old who have been abused, neglected, exposed to violence or at-risk for experiencing trauma.
The YBPG Manual is intended for mental health and health care professionals, yoga teachers and teachers in academic settings. A literature review, the 14-week protocol for facilitating YBPG, weekly yoga practices for group participants and handouts are included in the 96-page manual.
