The School of Social Work’s Advanced Clinical Practice Institute, in collaboration with the Minnesota Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, is proud to present Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine where he is also on the faculty of the Center for Culture, Brain, and Development and the Co-Director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at. He has published extensively, including Mindsight, which offers readers an in-depth exploration of the power of the mind to integrate the brain and promote well-being. His latest parenting book, The Whole-Brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind, with Tina Bryson, PhD., explores the application of the mindsight approach to parenting.  Dr. Siegel’s ability to make complicated concepts exciting as well as easy to understand has led him to be invited to address local, nation, and international groups of educators, parents, public administrators, health care providers, policy-makers, clergy, and neuroscientists.

This presentation is Part Five in The Year of Development: The contributions of developmental science to clinical understanding and practice. The goal of this class series is to describe to the professional community the contributions that Developmental Science has made and is making to clinical understanding and practice.

This program, when attended in its entirety, is available for 2 continuing credits. Student rates available.
