Complementary and Integrative Health Approaches such as yoga, biofeedback, meditation, and mindfulness techniques are becoming more widely used by individuals in the United States, including children and adolescents. Some of these interventions are even being incorporated into school delivered programs to promote overall well-being and prevent mental health conditions. However, the current state of the evidence has not caught up with the public interest and utilization of these practices. This talk will provide the audience with a summary of what is known about the use of complementary health approaches by youth in the United States and a series of highlights of the current level of evidence for these approaches. Emphasis will be placed on where there is a need for additional research to justify the use of these interventions clinically, and how providers can weigh the risks of unknown potential benefit with the reported minimal risk of harm from the interventions.
