Dr Daniel Siegel

Dr Dan Siegel is a neuropsychiatrist whose pioneering research with parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson has helped many parents navigate the complexities of parenting around the world. He is also widely recognised as a pioneer in the field of mental health, and coined the term ‘mindsight’ which is a technique to change the wiring and architecture of our brains. He is also a New York Times bestselling author.

We have gathered all of the Dan Siegel books we publish here because we believe there has never been a better time for individuals, parents, and children to learn the tools to improve thinking, wellbeing, and connectedness whilst reducing fear, anxiety, and stress. There is something for everyone in this collection.

The Whole-Brain Child

Your toddler throws a tantrum in the middle of a store. Your preschooler refuses to get dressed. Your eleven-year-old sulks on the bench instead of playing on the field …

This pioneering, practical book demystifies the meltdowns and aggravations, explaining the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures. The ‘upstairs brain’, which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-twenties. And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain.

By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, you can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate your child’s brain and foster vital growth. Clear explanations, age-appropriate strategies, and illustrations will help you explain these concepts to your child, and show you how to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development so your children can lead a balanced, meaningful, and connected life.

No-Drama Discipline

No-Drama Discipline provides an effective, compassionate road map for dealing with tantrums, tensions, and tears – without causing a scene. Based on recent discoveries about the brain that give us deep insights into the children we care for, this book offers a ‘relational’ approach that builds on children’s innate desire to please their parents and get along well with others.

Complete with candid stories and playful illustrations that bring the authors’ suggestions to life, No-Drama Discipline presents clear messages in a practical and inviting format. Using these techniques, you can discipline your children in a way that’s high on relationship-building, high on respect, and low on drama and conflict. As a result, your life as a parent will be easier, and your parenting will become more effective. And more importantly, you’ll create connections in your children’s brains to build emotional and social skills that will serve them now and throughout their entire life.

The Power of Showing Up

One of the very best scientific predictors for how any child turns out — in terms of happiness, academic success, leadership skills, and meaningful relationships — is whether at least one adult in their life has consistently shown up for them. This doesn’t take a lot of time, energy, or money. Instead, showing up means offering a quality of presence.

Based on the latest brain and attachment research, The Power of Showing Up shares stories, scripts, simple strategies, illustrations, and tips for all kinds of situations: when our kids are struggling or when they’re enjoying success; when we’re consoling, disciplining, or arguing with them; and even when we’re apologising for the times we haven’t shown up for them. Demonstrating that mistakes and missteps are repairable, this book is a powerful guide to cultivating your child’s healthy emotional landscape.

Mindsight

Daniel J. Siegel coined the term ‘mindsight’ to describe the innovative integration of brain science with the practice of psychotherapy. Combining the latest research findings with case studies from his practice, he demonstrates how mindsight can be applied to alleviate a range of psychological and interpersonal problems — from anxiety disorders to ingrained patterns of behaviour.

With warmth and humour, Dr Siegel shows us how to observe the working of our minds, allowing us to understand why we think, feel, and act the way we do; and how, by following the proper steps, we can literally change the wiring and architecture of our brains.

Both practical and profound, Mindsight offers exciting new proof that we have the ability — at any stage of our lives — to transform our thinking, our wellbeing, and our relationships.

Brainstorm

Between the ages of 12 and 24, the brain changes in important and often maddening ways. It’s no wonder that many parents approach their child’s adolescence with fear and trepidation. However, if parents and teens can work together to form a deeper understanding of the brain science behind all the tumult, they will be able to turn conflict into connection and form a deeper understanding of one another.

Drawing on important new research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, Dan Siegel explores exciting ways in which understanding how the teenage brain functions can help parents make what is in fact an incredibly positive period of growth, change, and experimentation in their children’s lives less lonely and distressing on both sides of the generational divide.

Whether you have no experience with a reflective practice or are an experienced practitioner, Aware is a hands-on guide that will enable you to become more focussed and present, as well as more energised and emotionally resilient in the face of stress and the everyday challenges life throws your way.
