Dr. Dan Siegel
Dr. Daniel J. Siegel is currently clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine where he is on the faculty of the Center for Culture, Brain, and Development and the Co-Director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center. Dr. Siegel is also the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute, an educational organization that focuses 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. His psychotherapy practice includes children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families.
Dr. Siegel’s book, Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation (Bantam, 2010), offers an in-depth exploration of the power of the mind to integrate the brain and promote well-being. He has written two parenting books, Parenting from the Inside Out: How a Deeper Self-Understanding Can Help You Raise Children Who Thrive (Tarcher/Penguin, 2003) with Mary Hartzell, M.Ed. and The Whole-Brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind (Random House, 2011) with Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D., both of which explore the application of the mindsight approach to parenting. His latest book, Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain, explores how brain development impacts teenagers’ behavior and relationships.
