One of the most popular speakers in our field today, Daniel Siegel is celebrated for his contributions over the past two decades in bringing the once exotic subject of brain science to the attention of a generation of therapists. His vast knowledge of the subject is important, of course, but what keeps the audience in the palm of his hand is his crystal-clear explanations of complex material, and his genius for making us laugh even as we’re taking it all in. Currently a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, his many influential books include The Developing Mind, Mindsight, The Mindful Therapist, and most recently, Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human.
In his keynote, he’ll focus on how the advances across a range of disciplines—including brain science, psychiatry, attachment theory, quantum physics, and spirituality to name just a few—have expanded our conception of consciousness and their implications for the practice of psychotherapy.
