Are you struggling to effectively treat children and adolescents who may be experiencing behavior disorders, trauma, anxiety, and mood disorders?

Daniel J. Siegel, M.D, New York Times bestselling author and worldrenowned neuropsychiatrist, has developed the Mindsight approach, which provides a unique understanding of relationships, brain, and the developing mind. Built on decades of synthesis of a range of fields of research to help create the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology, his approach expertly illuminates the science of how the young mind is formed, and provides relational strategies that support brain integration to support healthy development and achieve optimal regulation and lasting change in the child’s or adolescent’s life.

Childhood and adolescence are important and distinct periods of brain development. When we understand the similarities and differences across these periods, we can better support the development of children and adolescents. You will take home practical skills for teaching youth how to use the mind to create integration within the body and brain, and within our relationships with people and nature.

Equipped with this knowledge and these skills, clinicians, educators, and parents are in a strong position to use science-inspired strategies to support the growth of well-being lives of children and adolescents to help them thrive!

If you work with children & adolescents, this is a course you do not want to miss!
