Mindsight in Action: How to Create a Healthy Mind

Presented by Daniel J. Siegel, MD on 02-04-2011 at 9 a.m. Pacific

Mindsight is the ability to perceive the inner workings of the mind in ourselves and others. This vital human capacity is the mechanism underlying social and emotional intelligence and, thus, plays a significant part in promoting well-being. Mindsight is a learnable skill, and Dr. Siegel will discuss how we can trace a new format for identifying mental health, stemming from systems that are integrated into our internal lives and in our relationships within families, groups, and organizations.

This web conference is advanced instructional level and designed to help clinicians:

  1. Identify and utilize eight domains of integration that can organize an approach to personal transformation;
  2. Predict ways that specific focused attention can alter the synaptic connections in the brain;
  3. Formulate means to modify functioning with greater power and agility;
  4. Assess impediments to integration through the states of chaos and rigidity.

Meet the Presenter

Daniel J. Siegel, MD

Daniel J. Siegel, MD

Daniel J. Siegel received his medical degree from Harvard University and completed his postgraduate medical education at UCLA with training in pediatrics and child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry. He served as a National Institute of Mental Health Research Fellow at UCLA, studying family interactions with an emphasis on how attachment experiences influence emotions, behavior, autobiographical memory, and narrative.

Dr. Siegel is currently a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, where he is also on the faculty of the Center for Culture, Brain, and Development and the Co-Director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA. An award-winning educator, he is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and recipient of several other honorary fellowships. 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 has published extensively for the professional audience. He is the co-editor of a handbook of psychiatry and the author of numerous articles, chapters, and the internationally acclaimed text, The Developing Mind: Toward a Neurobiology of Interpersonal Experience (Guilford, 1999). This book introduces the idea of interpersonal neurobiology and has been of interest to and utilized by a number of organizations, including the U.S. Department of Justice, The Vatican’s Pontifical Council for the Family, Microsoft, Google, early intervention programs, and a range of clinical and research departments worldwide. He has been invited to lecture for the King of Thailand, Pope John Paul II, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Dr. Siegel serves as the Founding Editor for the Norton Professional Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology, which includes more than 20 textbooks. His book with Mary Hartzell, MEd, Parenting from the Inside Out: How a Deeper Self-Understanding Can Help You Raise Children Who Thrive (Tarcher/Penguin, 2003) explores the application of this newly emerging view of the mind, the brain, and human relationships. His professional book, The Mindful Brain: Reflection and Attunement in the Cultivation of Well-Being (Norton, 2007), explores the nature of mindful awareness as a process that harnesses the social circuitry of the brain as it promotes mental, physical, and relational health. His book Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation offers the general reader an in-depth exploration of the power of the mind to integrate the brain and promote well-being. His latest professional text, The Mindful Therapist, explores the application of these ideas for the clinician’s own development of mindsight and neural integration.
