  • The world’s leading expert and best-selling author on the confluence of neuroscience, mindfulness and psychotherapy
  • Internationally-recognized authority and pioneer of interpersonal neurobiology

  • Featured in Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, The Boston Globe and O, The Oprah Magazine

Psychotherapy enables individuals to identify patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior that may be restricting them from living a full and rewarding life. Some of these aspects of a person’s presenting profile may be due to experiences from attachment relationships while others may be a function of inborn neural propensities called temperament.

Join Daniel J. Siegel M.D., UCLA brain scientist, psychotherapist, world renowned expert and best-selling author, as he dives deeply into the study of how experiences interact with temperament in the unfolding human personality throughout the lifespan. You will focus on how to disentangle these important but distinct aspects of human development to optimize therapeutic outcome.
