Daniel J. Siegel, M.D
Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., 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 a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and the founding 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 honorary fellowships. Dr. Siegel is also the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute, an educational organization which offers online learning and in-person lectures that focus 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. He serves as the Medical Director of the LifeSpan Learning Institute and on the Advisory Board of the Blue School in New York City, which has built its curriculum around Dr. Siegel’s Mindsight approach.
In his highly acclaimed workshop, Dan Siegel explores trauma resolution from an Interpersonal Neurobiology perspective, looking at how early life experiences and relationships interact with the nervous system and the developing mind to shape who we become. By establishing a working definition of the mind, using the foundational concept of integration – the differentiation and linkage of parts of a system, we can begin to conceptualize trauma through an Interpersonal Neurobiology lens and explore how we can best help our clients resolve trauma, increase integration, and move towards health, well-being, and resiliency.
