Dr. Dan J. Siegel, "The Whole-Brain Child, 12 Strategies to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind"
In this half-day seminar, leading neuropsychiatrist, Dr Dan Siegel, sweeps aside old models of 'good' and 'bad' parenting to offer a new scientific focus to the cultivation of healthy emotional and intellectual development, leading to calmer, happier, resilient children.
How we focus our attention shapes the connections in the brain. And how the brain's connections link to one another in an integrated way directly shapes how it functions in health. An integrated brain creates a flexible, flourishing mind and compassionate, rewarding relationships. By inspiring children to focus their attention, parents and educators can provide the kind of guidance that will promote the growth of neural integration at the heart of healthy brain development, which in turn offers powerful tools to develop the emotional intelligence kids will need to be successful in the world.
This new approach to raising children will be explored through engaging discussion, case examples, and experiential immersions. Parents, grandparents, teachers and child development professionals will find this learning experience filled with scientifically-based ideas and practical skills that can promote well-being in children's lives.
