The Mindful Therapist: An Approach to Cultivate Your Mind to Be the Best Therapist with Daniel J. Siegel, M.D.

Join Dr. Siegel in an exploration of the mind, what it means to be mindful, and how to cultivate presence and mindfulness in the therapeutic relationship. In this workshop, Dr. Siegel will provide a deep understanding of the nature of the mind through an interpersonal neurobiology and mindsight lens, which serves as a foundation to further explore the areas of mindfulness, attention, intention and consciousness. Dr. Siegel will teach you how to integrate mindfulness into the clinical setting – from conceptualization, to treatment planning, to intervention.

While learning to be a more mindful therapist benefits your clients’ journey towards healing, it also supports your own well-being. Dr. Siegel explains how being more mindful and learning to be present helps to avoid therapy burnout. This also helps increase health in body, mind and relationships while it promotes kindness and compassion, improving the life for both you and your clients.

Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. is the leading authority on interpersonal neurobiology. His work is changing our understanding of the brain and improving the outcomes of psychotherapy. Mindsight comes from his years of research and clinical practice in the areas of mindfulness, neuroscience and attachment. Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., author of Emotional Intelligence, compares the potential of Mindsight to Darwin’s theory of evolution and Freud’s theory of the unconscious. This workshop is a must to revolutionize your work as a therapist and lead a more fulfilling life!
