A Conversation with Dr. Daniel Siegel hosted by Dr. Lisa Firestone – Imagine waking up to the realization that the fields that focus on the mind—from mental health and education to psychiatry and psychology—do not actually define what the mind actually is. Without knowing what mind is, how can we then say what a healthy mind might be and how we could go about developing one for ourselves and for others?
In this Webinar, neuropsychiatrist and author, Dan Siegel, M.D., will explore these findings and focus on the interrogatives of the mind—the Who, What, Where, When, How, and even Why of the mind—of your mind, of what the human mind may actually be about. What may emerge in this exploration may surprise you, and even open your own mind to new vistas of what your mind might become, and how you can cultivate more mental energy and vitality in your life, and the lives of others as well! Come join in the exciting exploration of what being human may be all about.
Participants will be able to:
- Outline a working definition of the mind.
- Define mental health.
- Describe steps toward integration that cultivate well-being.
- List three ways to strengthen the mind.
- Describe two kinds of integration.
