Brainstorm: The Power And Purpose Of The Teenage Brain

NPR: The Diane Rehm Show

Dr. Dan Siegel

Adolescence is universally recognized as a trying time for parents and children. But new brain research suggests this period of immature and often reckless behavior is more than just a stage for parents and teens to endure. It is a vital time for adolescents to chart the course for the adults they will ultimately become. One brain researcher points out that it is during our teen years that we learn how to navigate the world outside the safety of home, how to connect deeply with others and how to safely take risks. He says that by understanding how the brain functions, teens can improve their own lives and those of their parents. Diane and her guests discuss the power and purpose of the teenage brain.

The Whole-Brain Child: Innovative Strategies for Nurturing Your Child’s Developing Mind

Mom Enough

Interview with Daniel J. Siegel, M.D.

We all have experienced those moments when our child’s ability to reason seems to fly out the window and raw emotion takes over. Maybe we counter our child’s intense feelings with words of comfort and calm. Or maybe our own frustration rises and we begin to spin out of control. This week’s Mom Enough guest, UCLA clinical psychiatry professor and popular author Dr. Dan Siegel, draws on recent brain research to offer an effective and innovative framework for teaching our children to understand how their brains work and use that knowledge to achieve balance, insight and strategies for coping with frustration, disappointment and conflict.

Science of Transformation

IONS: Institute of Noetic Sciences

by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D.

How can we understand transformation in a scientific way? We could start by understanding the mind. The “mind” can be defined as an embodied and relational process that regulates the flow of energy and information. So how would you regulate the mind? By developing the ability to see mental activity with more clarity and then modify it with more effectiveness. Dr. Daniel Siegel calls this ability “Mindsight” and says there’s something about being able to see and influence your internal world that creates more health. In this interview, Dr. Siegel will describe how mindfulness techniques are one way to monitor and modify our internal states and create integration, thus facilitating transformation into better states of health. This recording was produced by the Institute of Noetic Sciences, which features the largest web library on conscious change.
