More on Dr. Siegel's work
When facing challenges, unpleasant tasks and contentious issues such as homework, screen time, food choices and bedtime, children often act out or shut down, responding with reactivity instead of receptivity.
This is what Dr. Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D., the "New York Times" bestselling authors of "The Whole Brain Child" and "No-Drama Discipline," call a No Brain response — but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Referencing the new book "The Yes Brain: How to Cultivate Courage, Curiosity and Resilience in Your Child," Dr. Siegel will explain how kids can be taught to approach life with openness and curiosity. Parents can foster their children’s ability to say "yes" to the world and welcome all that life has to offer, even during difficult times — this is otherwise known as cultivating the “Yes Brain.”
Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. is clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, the founding co-director of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center and executive director of the Mindsight institute. A graduate of Harvard Medical School, Dr. Siegel is the author of several books, including the "New York Times" bestsellers "Brainstorm," "Mind" and, with Tina Payne Bryson, "The Whole-Brain Child" and "No-Drama Discipline."
He is also the author of the bestsellers "Mindsight" and, with Mary Hartzell, "Parenting from the Inside Out." The author of the internationally acclaimed professional texts "The Mindful Brain" and "The Developing Mind," Dr. Siegel keynotes conferences and conducts workshops worldwide. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, with welcome visits from their adult son and daughter.
“This unique and exciting book shows us how to help children embrace life with all of its challenges and thrive in a modern world … It’s a veritable treasure chest of parenting insights and techniques.” — Carol Dweck, author of "Mindset"
