Author(s): Daniel J. Siegel
The groundbreaking bestseller on how your capacity for insight and empathy allows you to make positive changes in your brain -- and in your life
Daniel J. Siegel, widely recognised as a pioneer in the field of mental health, coined the term 'mindsight' to describe the innovative integration of brain science with the practice of psychotherapy. Combining the latest research findings with case studies from his practice, he demonstrates how mindsight can be applied to alleviate a range of psychological and interpersonal problems -- from anxiety disorders to ingrained patterns of behaviour.
With warmth and humour, Dr Siegel shows us how to observe the working of our minds, allowing us to understand why we think, feel, and act the way we do; and how, by following the proper steps, we can literally change the wiring and architecture of our brains.
Both practical and profound, Mindsight offers exciting new proof that we have the ability -- at any stage of our lives -- to transform our thinking, our wellbeing, and our relationships.
'Through beautiful and often remarkable case histories, Mindsight shows us the principles we can use to better understand ourselves... and change our minds, brains, relationships, some lifelong character traits.' - Norman Doidge, author of The Brain that Changes Itself.
Daniel J. Siegel is the author of the internationally acclaimed professional texts The Mindful Brain and The Developing Mind, and the co-author of Parenting from the Inside Out and The Whole-Brain Child.
