An Evening Lecture for Parents, Grandparents, Educators, Child Development Professionals and All Who Help Children Grow
In this evening lecture, Dr. Dan Siegel will share the scientifically-based ideas and practical skills that promote health and well-being in children’s lives. The whole brain approach offers a model for how to transform everyday interactions into brain-shaping moments.
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 and rewarding relationships. By inspiring children to focus their attention in ways that are accessible and easy to teach, we can provide the kind of guidance that will promote the growth of neural integration that is at the heart of health. Even moments of despair and discouragement can be transformed into opportunities to deepen relationships and promote integration. Beyond merely tools of survival, this approach empowers us to enjoy the journey of caregiving as we transform challenge into integrative learning.
