Interpersonal Neurobiology Series
-3 DVD SERIES-
With Daniel Siegel, MD
This is a unique 3-part video set by one of the leading voices in neuroscience today. Add tremendous information and insight to your every-day practice.
APPLICATIONS OF THE ADULT ATTACHMENT INTERVIEW
During this seminar recording, world leading expert, Dan Siegel, M.D. will dive deeply into the only scientifically validated measure of unresolved trauma and grief. You will explore the ways in which the Adult Attachment Interview (AAI) can offer new insights into your clients’ relationships and their brains. Dr. Siegel will describe how the AAI can best predict how a child will be attached to his or parent. This seminar recording will examine how you can use this information to inform clinical assessment, treatment planning, and implementation of therapeutic interventions.
•Explain how the AAI can clinically assess the attachment of a child to their parent
•Outline the four major categories of AAI findings and their implications for clinical interventions
•Discuss how results of AAI can be used in psychotherapy
NEUROPLASTICITY: CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS & APPLICATIONS
Effective psychotherapy can be said to only work and have lasting positive effects if it changes the structure of the brain and how the brain functions. Join Dr. Siegel and learn how the therapeutic relationship and clinical interventions can optimize neuroplastic effects in creating lasting change within psychotherapy. Facets of neural growth such as synaptogenesis, neurogenesis, myelinogenesis, and epigenesis will be discussed, and the implications and applications of these findings on psychotherapy will be explored.
•Describe four essential aspects of neuroplasticity
•Outline seven facets of experience that optimize neural growth
•Discuss the role of neuroplasticity in effective psychotherapy
NEURAL INTEGRATION AND PSYCHOTHERAPY
In the interdisciplinary field of interpersonal neurobiology, we see neural integration as the heart of health. From this perspective, clinical interventions that identify the domains of integration that may be plagued by chaos or rigidity reveal impediments to integration.
In this seminar recording, join the world’s leading expert on neuroscience, Dr. Dan Siegel, and learn how to focus interventions on these domains so that positive changes in the brain, mind, and relationships can unfold. You will end this recording with an understanding of the clinical applications of neural integration and its application in therapy. You will also learn how to utilize the Wheel of Awareness intervention.
•Explain what integration is and why it matters
•Identify the elements of consciousness that can be differentiated and then linked
•Outline how to use the Wheel of Awareness practice as a clinical tool

Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA. An award-winning educator, he is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. Dr. Siegel is 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. Dr. Siegel received his medical degree from Harvard University and completed his postgraduate medical education at UCLA. He served as a National Institute of Mental Health Research Fellow at UCLA. Dr. Siegel has published extensively for the professional audience. He is the co-editor of the Handbook of Psychiatry and the author of numerous articles, chapters, and the internationally acclaimed text, The Developing Mind: How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are (Guilford, 1999). This book introduces the field of interpersonal neurobiology, and has been utilized by a number of clinical and research organizations worldwide, including the U.S. Department of Justice, The Vatican’s Pontifical Council for the Family, Microsoft and Google. The Developing Mind, Second Edition was published in March 2012. Dr. Siegel serves as the founding editor for the Norton Professional Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology which contains over two dozen textbooks. He has also authored Parenting from the Inside Out: How a Deeper Self-Understanding Can Help You Raise Children Who Thrive with Mary Hartzell, M.ED. (Tarcher/Penguin, 2003), The Mindful Brain: Reflection and Attunement in the Cultivation of Well-Being (Norton, 2007) and Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation (Random House, 2010), The Mindful Therapist (Norton, 2010), The Whole-Brain Child ( Random House, 2011), and his latest book is Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology: An Integrative Handbook of the Mind (Norton, 2012). Dr. Siegel’s ability to make complicated concepts exciting as well as easy to understand has led him to be invited to address local, national and international organizations where he speaks to groups of educators, parents, public administrators, healthcare providers, policy-makers, clergy and neuroscientists. He lives in southern California with his family.
