“A gifted and sensitive clinician as well as a master synthesizer of research findings from neuroscience and child development.”
—Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., author of Emotional Intelligence
Recent findings from neuroscience show that neural integration is impaired in psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and autism. Join Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., for this revolutionary seminar, where you will learn about Mindsight, a new approach to psychotherapy based on Dr. Siegel’s pioneering work in Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB).
Learn how neural integration and the power of the therapeutic relationship combined with the right skills can create new and lasting changes in the brain, the mind and relationships.
Dr. Siegel is the leading authority on Interpersonal Neurobiology, and his work is changing our understanding of the brain and improving the outcomes of psychotherapy. Mindsight comes from his years of research and clinical practice in the areas of mindfulness, neuroscience and attachment. Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., author of Emotional Intelligence, compares the potential of Mindsight to Darwin’s theory of evolution and Freud’s theory of the unconscious.
Explain the central role of neural integration in the creation of health.
Identify states of chaos and rigidity that are present when integration is impaired.
Define “mind” and “well-being.”
Identify eight domains of integration and how these can be the focus of clinical assessment and intervention.
What is the mind and why is it missing from the field of mental health?
A working definition of the mind and well-being
An interdisciplinary view of how seeing the mind can promote “neural integration” at the heart of health
Approaching clinical assessment and intervention
Harnessing the power of neuroplasticity to transform people’s lives
The Domains of Integration:
Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. is currently a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and the co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA. An award-winning educator, he is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. Dr. Siegel is also the executive director of the Mindsight Institute, an educational organization that focuses on how the development of mindsight in individuals, families and communities can be enhanced by examining the interface of human relationships and basic biological processes.
Dr. Siegel received his medical degree from Harvard University and completed his postgraduate medical education at UCLA. He also served as a National Institute of Mental Health Research Fellow at UCLA.
Dr. Siegel has published extensively for the professional audience. He is the co-editor of a handbook of psychiatry and the author of numerous articles, chapters and the internationally-acclaimed text, The Developing Mind: Toward a Neurobiology of Interpersonal Experience (Guilford, 1999). This book has been utilized by a number of organizations, including the U.S. Department of Justice, The Vatican’s Pontifical Council for the Family, Microsoft and Google. He has been invited to lecture for the King of Thailand, Pope John Paul II, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Dr. Siegel serves as the founding editor for the Norton Professional Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology which includes more than 20 textbooks. He has also authored Parenting from the Inside Out: How a Deeper Self-Understanding Can Help You Raise Children Who Thrive with Mary Hartzell, M.ED. (Tarcher/Penguin, 2003), The Mindful Brain: Reflection and Attunement in the Cultivation of Well-Being (Norton, 2007) and Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation (Random House, 2010). His latest professional text, The Mindful Therapist, explores the application of these ideas for the clinician’s own development of mindsight and neural integration.
Dr. Siegel’s ability to make complicated concepts exciting as well as easy to understand has led him to be invited to address local, national and international organizations where he speaks to groups of educators, parents, public administrators, healthcare providers, policy-makers, clergy, and neuroscientists. He lives in southern California with his family.
