Christina Payne Bryson, PhD's Profile

Christina Payne Bryson, PhD Related seminars and products


Dr. Tina Payne Bryson (she/her) is the co-author (with Dan Siegel) of two New York Times bestsellers - The Whole-Brain Child selling over a million copies. Dr. Bryson is also the author of The Bottom Line for Baby (Random House 2020) and co-author (with Dan Siegel) of The Power of Showing Up (Random House 2020) and The Yes Brain (Random House 2018). Her upcoming book, The Way of Play (Random House 2025), co-authored with Georgie Wisen-Vincent, will be released January 2025.

Tina is an LCSW, and the founder/executive director of The Center for Connection (“CFC”), a multidisciplinary clinical practice with an interpersonal neurobiology lens; of the Play Strong Institute, a center devoted to the study, research, and practice of play therapy through a neurodevelopment lens; and The Center for Connection and Neurodiversity, a wing of the CFC devoted to celebrating neurodifferences and providing brain-based occupational therapy, and interdisciplinary clinical work across the lifespan.

Tina keynotes conferences and conducts workshops for kids, parents, educators, clinicians, and industry leaders all over the world, and she makes frequent media appearances (for example, in TIME Magazine, Good Morning America, Huffington Post, Redbook, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Real Simple). When she isn’t teaching, she consults with various companies and organizations, including the Nike Sport Research Lab (NSRL) where she was project director for mental or emotional performance, offering direct support to athletes and supporting research. She also works as a child development specialist at St. Mark’s School in Pasadena, CA. A graduate of Baylor University, Tina earned her LCSW and PhD from the University of Southern California, where her research explored attachment science, childrearing theory, and the emerging field of interpersonal neurobiology.

Tina emphasizes that before she’s a parenting educator, or a researcher, she’s a mom. She limits her clinical practice and speaking engagements so that she can spend time with her family. Alongside her husband of 30 years, parenting her three boys is what makes her happiest.

Tina’s professional life now focuses on taking research and theory from various fields of science, and offering it in a way that is clear, realistic, humorous, and immediately helpful. As she puts it, “For parents, clinicians, and teachers, learning about how kids’ (and their own) brains work is surprisingly practical, informing how they approach discipline, how they help kids deal with everyday struggles, and ultimately how they connect with the children they care about.”
