A one-day conference with Dan Siegel, MD
This is a fantastic opportunity to spend a day listening to one of the foremost experts in his field. Dr Siegel has lectured for the King of Thailand, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Pope John Paul II and Google University amongst many others
At this one-day conference Dr Siegel will explore the links between attachment, the relationship between children and their parents and the latest research in mindfulness and brain science. It will encourage parents to look at their own attachment style and to explore exciting and practical new ideas from the cutting edge of science and apply them to the world of caring for children.
The conference will also explore the concept of Mindsight which helps us attune to the inner world of ourselves and others. It is the basis of social and emotional intelligence and the source of secure attachment between child and caregiver. Mindsight lets us 'name and tame' the emotions we are experiencing rather than being overwhelmed by them.
Daniel Siegel, MD is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute.
