The Science of Effective Parenting
Dr. Daniel Siegel is truly one of the wonders of our time. A clinical professor of psychiatry, the founding co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA and the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute, he is An award-winning educator.
Dr. Siegel is best known as a mindfulness expert and for his work developing the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology, which is an interdisciplinary view of life experience that draws on over a dozen branches of science to create a framework for an understanding of our subjective and interpersonal lives.
Dr. Siegel has published extensively for both the professional and lay audiences. His four New York Times bestsellers are Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human, Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain, and two books with Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D.: The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline. His other books include The Developing Mind (2nd Ed.), The Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology, Mindsight, The Mindful Brain, The Mindful Therapist, The Yes Brain (also with Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D.), and his upcoming book Aware (2018).
For me, Dr. Siegel’s work is an invitation to greater self-awareness and a deeper understanding of what is required to create healthy minds, families and parent-child relationships. Through sound scientific research, he helps us understand that we are more than just 7billion people roaming the planet as individuals, but rather we are one mind sharing energy and transforming it from possibility to reality.
