Saturday Morning Keynote
A pioneer in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, Daniel Siegel has long devoted himself to examining how relationships—with others, oneself, and the larger world—continue to shape the brain throughout the life cycle. A clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, he possesses a rare talent for translating the intricacies of the brain into accessible “kitchen table” language. His influential books include Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation and The Mindful Therapist: A Clinician’s Guide to Mindsight, which explores how therapists can cultivate mindful presence to help clients heal and thrive.
In this address, Siegel will explore how advances across a range of disciplines—including brain science, psychiatry, attachment theory, quantum physics, and spirituality, to name just a few—have expanded our conception of consciousness, and what this means for the practice of psychotherapy.
