THE SPEAKER
Dr Daniel Siegel is one of the revolutionary global innovators in the integration of brain science into the practice of psychotherapy. Using case histories from his practice, he shows how, by following the proper steps, nearly everyone can learn how to focus their attention on the internal world of the mind in a way that will literally change the wiring and architecture of their brain.

Dr Dan Siegel absolutely gets It-the synthesis of psychotherapy and neuroscience-and translates It into engaging prose, pithy acronyms, and compelling practices.
John C. Norcross, PhD, President, APA Society of Clinical Psychology and Professor of Psychology, University of Scranton

A brilliant look at what it means to do psychotherapy 'with the brain in mind.' Daniel Siegel's bold vision of integration-mind, brain, and relationships-has the power to heal. Take it in slowly and therapy will never seem the same again."
Christopher K. Germer, PhD, Clinical Instructor in Psychology, Harvard Medical School

The internationally renowned Dan Siegel has written a truly wonderful book on the essence and process of psychotherapy. Developing his unique neurophysiological approach to empathy, mindfulness and change, and illuminating the importance of therapist presence, openness, attunement and resonance. () Our understanding of the micro-skills of the therapeutic endeavor have been significantly advanced.
Paul Gilbert, PhD, professor of Clinical Psychology, Derby University, and author of The Compassionate Mind

APPLYING INTERPERSONAL NEUROBIOLOGY TO CLINICAL TECHNIQUE
A 2-day seminar with Dr Dan Siegel
FRIDAY 9 & SATURDAY 10 SEPTEMBER 2011
ABOUT THIS EVENT

In April 2011 Dr Dan Siegel gave an outstanding two-day seminar to explain why psychotherapy works, introducing us to new insights in the field of neural integration. Drawing our attention to the deeply social nature of the mind-body system, Dan elaborated the role of relationships in shaping the mind at a neurobiological level, offering layers of new knowledge to help us more fully explain the power of psychotherapy. We also began to discuss how knowledge about interpersonal neurobiology can be directly applied to clinical technique - a large and enormously complex area for practitioners to grasp - and this second event has been arranged to demonstrate and teach the fine detail of neurobiologically-informed practice. Harnessing the power of an interdisciplinary framework, we will identify specific ways in which clinical assessment, treatment planning and therapeutic interventions can be applied using the fundamental scientific principles of interpersonal neurobiology. (To see in detail, please click through to full programme and abstracts.)

This seminar will undoubtedly be of interest to those who attended the first seminar, but also to all those who have curiosity about the application of neurobiology to their work, and who wish to deepen their understanding of how new knowledge is informing therapeutic technique.
