She adapted the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program typically for adults for an adolescent population, and is the founder and creator of Stressed Teens, a program using the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens (MBSR-T) program.

She conducts trainings, workshops and conferences on MBSR/MBSR-T with a variety of populations including professionals, teachers, parents, and teens in the U.S. and internationally. A more recent area of work is in bringing mindfulness into the California Elementary School system through her role as a member of the Research Advisory Board for Mindful Schools and assessed the effectiveness of such a program. She is also exploring brain-imaging work at Stanford University with adolescents who practice MBSR-T. Ms. Biegel is interested in expanding MBSR-T into other teen populations in a variety of settings while assessing potential efficacy, and dispensing the MBSR-T curriculum so that professionals trained in MBSR-T can utilize this intervention in their own work.
