The study of neural integration—how we can promote the linkage of differentiated areas of the nervous system through the focus of our attention—reveals that we can develop scientifically-based practices to develop our own well-being and presence as therapists. Mindsight is a term used to denote the skill of sensing the internal world and then shaping that flow of energy and information toward integration. In this seminar, you will come to understand the science behind Mindsight and the practical applications of this approach. You will learn both experiential exercises and fundamental concepts that can significantly enhance therapeutic practice.
This seminar recording reveals how you can enhance your efficacy by deepening your ability to be present in the therapeutic relationship. Learn how cultivating presence can transform your work with your clients and the impact it can have on your own life.
Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. is the leading authority on interpersonal neurobiology. His work is changing our understanding of the brain and improving the outcomes of psychotherapy. Mindsight comes from his years of research and clinical practice in the areas of mindfulness, neuroscience and attachment. Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., author of Emotional Intelligence, compares the potential of Mindsight to Darwin’s theory of evolution and Freud’s theory of the unconscious.
