Interpersonal Neurobiology and the (other) ‘3 Rs’: Cultivating a Healthy Mind in Children and Adolescents

Presented by Dr. Dan Siegel

Monday July 29, 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. is a graduate of Harvard Medical School and completed his postgraduate medical education at UCLA with training in pediatrics and child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry. He is currently a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, founding co-director of UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center, founding co-investigator at the UCLA Center for Culture, Brain and Development, and executive director of the Mindsight Institute, an educational center devoted to promoting insight, compassion, and empathy in individuals, families, institutions, and communities.

Dr. Siegel’s psychotherapy practice spans thirty years, and he has published extensively for the professional audience. He serves as the Founding Editor for the Norton Professional Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology which includes over 70 textbooks. Dr. Siegel’s books include his five New York Times bestsellers: Aware: The science and practice of presence; Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain; Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human, 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, Parenting from the Inside Out (with Mary Hartzell, M.Ed.), The Yes Brain (also with Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D.). He has been invited to lecture for the King of Thailand, Pope John Paul II, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Google University, and TEDx.

This presentation will offer an overview of a field called Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) and its potential applications to the fields of education, public policy, parenting and mental health. IPNB is a field that combines many disciplines of science into one framework that examines the development of a healthy mind. By viewing the mind as a regulatory process that is both embodied and relational, IPNB offers us a new way of focusing directly on the education of the mind to create reflective skills, relational intelligence, and resilience in the face of life’s challenges.
