LORRAINE M. HOBBS, MA, CHOM

Director, Youth and Family Programs
Senior Teacher

Lorraine M. Hobbs, M.S., CHom., is a senior MBSR teacher at the University of California San Diego Center for Mindfulness. She received her training under the supervision of Dr. Steve Hickman. She has served as clinical director of in-patient and residential treatment programs, where she worked extensively with teens and their families. Her interest in integrative medicine and in the growing research on the consequences of stress and the executive function of the brain in children/teens inspired her to create a six week Mindfulness/Stress Reduction training program for Teens at the UCSD Center for Mindfulness. Her interest in reaching a larger population of teens and pre-teens led to the implementation of an eight-week mindfulness based curriculum in schools, designed to reduce stress, improve self-regulation and concentration and enhance the learning process. In addition. Lorraine developed a Mindful Parenting program, which supports parents in developing a greater capacity to parent with compassion and presence. She is also a part of the Mindfulness in Schools teaching/training team in the U.K. and lectures on the efficacy of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction with teens in the community. She is a certified Iyengar yoga teacher and Homeopathic practitioner.
