Dr Dan Siegel brain healthThis week we are so pleased to have Dr. Dan Siegel returning as our guest. As any parent with a teenager can tell you, their child’s adolescent years can be intimidating, confusing and anxiety-ridden. The behavioral changes that take place during this period strain even the strongest parent/child relationships, leaving both sides frustrated and begging a fundamental question—why do teens act this way?

Now, renowned neuropsychiatrist and bestselling author of Parenting from the Inside Out and The Whole-Brain Child, DANIEL J. SIEGEL, M.D., helps parents crack this code with his newest book BRAINSTORM: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage BrainBased on groundbreaking research in interpersonal neurobiology and framed by Siegel’s unique ability to make scientific concepts accessible and engaging, BRAINSTORM explores how brain development affects teenage behavior and relationships and helps promote understanding between parents and their teens. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Popular myths about teenage behavior
  • Why teens are driven to seek out novelty and take more risks
  • How the brain undergoes rapid changes, even throughout one’s early 20s (i.e., your rebellious “teen” years don’t end when you hit 20)
  • How adolescence is truly a “Golden Age” of innovation and creativity

Dr. Siegel’s research and bestselling books (Parenting from the Inside Out has sold more than 150,000 copies) have earned him widespread recognition as a parenting expert. The hugely popular parenting website Babble.com and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop have hailed Parenting from the Inside Out as a fundamental tool. Now, in BRAINSTORM, Dr. Siegel provides parents with an invaluable guide to turning one of life’s most challenging periods into one of its most rewarding.
