Dr. Dan Siegel is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute. He has written numerous best selling books and lectured around the world on his work in the field of interpersonal neurobiology. Dan takes the complicated workings of the brain and mind and offers a deeper understanding of the interplay, especially in relation to mindfulness in parenting. His approach to wellbeing, including the integration of a healthy brain and mind, and empathic, connected relationships is explored, as well as the disfunction that occurs when this fails. Dan’s research and expertise as a leading figure in the field of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry comes just at the right time, as the rise of childhood anxiety is at an alarmingly heightened pace, leading to a profound feeling of failure in so many relationships.
