In the interdisciplinary field of interpersonal neurobiology, we see neural integration as the heart of health. From this perspective, clinical interventions that identify the domains of integration that may be plagued by chaos or rigidity reveal impediments to integration.
In this seminar recording, join the world’s leading expert on neuroscience, Dr. Dan Siegel, and learn how to focus interventions on these domains so that positive changes in the brain, mind, and relationships can unfold. You will end this recording with an understanding of the clinical applications of neural integration and its application in therapy. You will also learn how to utilize the Wheel of Awareness intervention.
