Join in the collaborative journey to bring more kindness, compassion, and resilience into our world!

- Dr. Dan Siegel, Executive Director, Mindsight Institute

ZHUCHI will host Dr Dan Siegel on March 29, 2017, Newcastle Concert Hall, Newcastle NSW. This exclusive event will be his only appearance on the eastern seaboard at this time.

He will speak on his latest research and applications this research has to a number of key stages of human development and human relationships, referencing a number of his key publications. It will be a first class opportunity for clinicians, educators and researchers interested in brain plasticity, neurobiology and the magnificent, ever-developing brain.

Dan Siegel's work shows us how to observe the workings of our minds, allowing us to to understand WHY we think, feel and act the way we do; and how, by following the proper steps, we can literally change the wiring and architecture of our brain.

We literally have the ability - at any stage of our lives - to transform our thinking, our wellbeing, and our relationships.

"Taking responsibility for one's own mind can lead to liberation of the self, and the ability to offer nurturance and love to the next generation."

- Dan Siegel, Mindsight.

Dr Siegel's publications and research show us, without question, that we have a road map that can enable us as individuals, families, clinicians, educators to "turn off the tap" of unhappiness, psychological and emotional distress we are seeing in our communities and societies. Always with the power to do so in the hands of the individual. The new understandings of how the brain works gives us a way to create and sustain wellbeing in our lives, families and workplaces - as individuals, as parents, and as professionals.

"Relationships are the most important part of our having welbeiing in being human. It's that simple, and it's that important."

- Dan Siegel.

About Dan Siegel

Daniel J. Siegel 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 currently clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine where he is on the faculty of the Center for Culture, Brain, and Development and the founding co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center. 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.

Dr. Siegel has published extensively for the professional audience. He is 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 2012. Dr. Siegel serves as the Founding Editor for the Norton Professional Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology which contains over three dozen textbooks. The Mindful Brain: Reflection and Attunement in the Cultivation of Well-Being (Norton, 2007) explores the nature of mindful awareness as a process that harnesses the social circuitry of the brain as it promotes mental, physical, and relational health. The Mindful Therapist: A Clinician's Guide to Mindsight and Neural Integration (Norton, 2010), explores the application of focusing techniques for the clinician’s own development, as well as their clients' development of mindsight and neural integration. Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology: An Integrative Handbook of the Mind (Norton, 2012), explores how to apply the interpersonal neurobiology approach to developing a healthy mind, an integrated brain, and empathic relationships.

Dr. Siegel’s book, Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation (Bantam, 2010), offers the general reader an in-depth exploration of the power of the mind to integrate the brain and promote well-being. He has written three parenting books: Parenting from the Inside Out: How a Deeper Self-Understanding Can Help You Raise Children Who Thrive (Tarcher/Penguin, 2003) with Mary Hartzell, M.Ed., and the two The New York Times bestsellers The Whole-Brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind (Random House, 2011) and No-Drama Discipline: The Whole-Brain Way to Calm the Chaos and Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind (Bantam, 2014), with Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D. Dr. Siegel's The New York Times bestseller Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain (Tarcher, 2013), explores how brain development impacts teenagers’ behavior and relationships.

Dr. Siegel's unique ability to make complicated scientific concepts exciting has led him to be invited to address diverse local, national and international groups of mental health professionals, neuroscientists, corporate leaders, educators, parents, public administrators, healthcare providers, policy-makers, mediators, judges, and clergy. He has lectured for the King of Thailand, Pope John Paul II, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Google University, London's Royal Society of Arts (RSA), and TEDx.
