This week one of our all time favorite guests is returning, Dr. Dan Siegel. Dr. Siegel is currently clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and the Co-Director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center. He is also the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute, which offers online learning and in-person lectures that focus 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 has published extensively for the professional audience. He serves as the Founding Editor for the Norton Professional Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology which contains over two dozen textbooks. The Mindful Therapist (2010) explores the application of focusing techniques for the clinician’s own development, as well as their clients’ development of mindsight and neural integration. Dr. Siegel’s book, Mindsight (2010) offers the general reader an in-depth exploration of the power of the mind to integrate the brain and promote well-being. His latest parenting book, The Whole-Brain Child with Tina Payne Bryson, PhD, explores the application of the mindsight approach to parenting. In 2012 he published, “The Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology,” and ” The Developing Mind, Second Edition: How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are.” He has been invited to lecture for the King of Thailand, Pope John Paul II, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Google University, and TEDx.
