Daniel J. Siegel, MD
New York Times bestselling author, neuropsychiatrist
Explore the mechanisms of the mind with Dr. Daniel J. Siegel in this fascinating interview—including how the “mind” refers to a lot more than just the brain. Dr. Siegel introduces us to the Wheel of Awareness, a tool for consciousness integration that has been shown to improve well-being and trauma recovery in thousands of patients. You’ll discover how both integrating and differentiating various parts of our mind and experience can support healing, as well as the importance of being able to access states of pure awareness.
Dr. Daniel J. Siegel serves as the director of the Mindsight Institute and codirector of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center. A graduate of Harvard Medical School, he is the author of The Mindful Brain and Parenting from the Inside Out. His internationally acclaimed bestselling text, The Developing Mind, has been utilized by a number of organizations including the US Department of Justice, the Vatican, and more. Dr. Siegel is the founding editor of the Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology.
Deb Dana, LCSW
Author of The Polyvagal Theory in Therapy
When we feel threatened, our defenses go up and our ability to regulate our nervous system seems to go out the window—as a result, our trauma responses can get stuck in our bodies. Polyvagal theory helps us understand the ways trauma shapes our nervous system—and therefore see the pathways that can lead us back to healing. In this session, you’ll look at the cues that activate a survival state and explore ways to engage the natural resources of the autonomic nervous system in order to return to regulation.
Deb Dana is a clinician and consultant specializing in working with complex trauma. She is a consultant to the Traumatic Stress Research Consortium in the Kinsey Institute and clinical advisor to Khiron Clinics. She developed the Rhythm of Regulation Training Series translating polyvagal theory into clinical application and lectures internationally on how to bring a polyvagal-informed approach to therapy. Dana is the author of The Polyvagal Theory in Therapy: Engaging the Rhythm of Regulation and Polyvagal Exercises for Safety and Connection: 50 Client-Centered Practices, creator of the Polyvagal Flip Chart, and coeditor, with Stephen Porges, of Clinical Applications of the Polyvagal Theory: The Emergence of Polyvagal-Informed Therapies. Her Sounds True audio program, Befriending Your Nervous System, is due to be released in summer 2020.
