The Emerging Mind: How Relationships and the Embodied Brain Shape Who We Arewith Dr. Dan Siegel
July 11, 2012
What is the mind? From where and what does the mind emerge? Can our minds be made more resilient? What is â€˜interpersonal neurobiologyâ€™? Astonishingly, over ninety-five percent of mental health professionals from around the world have never received even a single lecture defining what the mind is. Bestselling author of both academic textbooks and works of popular science, and currently the clinical professor of psychiatry at UCLA, Daniel Siegel visits the RSA to explore a working definition of the mind. Join Daniel Siegel as he outlines how the mind can be defined as an emergent, self-organizing process that arises from, and also regulates energy and information flow within the brain and within relationships with others. The mindâ€™s functions in body and relationships will be described and then steps to strengthening this regulatory process of mind will be outlined as a surprising principle of mental health is revealed. Underlying both the neural and the relational pillars of a healthy mind is the process of integration â€” the linkage of differentiated aspects of a system. Cultivating integration within relationships and the nervous system means we can create the flexible, adaptive, coherent, and stable states of a resilient emerging mind.

The Mind, Brain, and Relationships: Integration as a Key to Mental HealthKeynote by Dr. Dan Siegel
March 23, 2010
In this keynote address on integrative mental health, Dan Siegel offers an overview of the process of integration as the mechanism underlying well-being in our bodies and in our relationships. Without integration, chaos and rigidity result. With the linkage of differentiated elements of a system--in the body or in our connections to others and the planet itself--we move toward integration. The result of integration is harmony. The mind can be harnessed to regulate energy and information flow in our bodies and in our relationships toward integration and create mental health.

"Witnessing a traumatic event is emotionally painful and can affect a person for the rest of his life, says Dr. Daniel Siegel, author of The Mindful Brain. Dr. Oz talks with Dr. Siegel about his book and about how people can cope with trauma by reframing the event into something that is a lesson rather than a painful memory."
