Daniel J. Siegel (born September 2, 1957) is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute.

Background[edit]

Siegel completed his medical degree from Harvard Medical School and his post-graduate medical education at UCLA.[1] His training is in pediatrics and child, adolescent and adult psychiatry. Siegel was the recipient of the UCLA psychiatry department's teaching award and several honorary fellowships for his work as director of UCLA's training program in child psychiatry and the Infant and Preschool Service at UCLA. He is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and is the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute.

Siegel is the author of several books on parenting and child development including The Mindful Brain: Reflection and Attunement in the Cultivation of Well-Being published by WW Norton in 2007,[2] The Developing Mind: Toward a Neurobiology of Interpersonal Experience published by the Guilford Press in 1999 and Parenting from the Inside Out, which he co-wrote with Mary Hartzell in 2003 and was published by Tarcher.

Siegel is known as a mindfulness expert[3] and for his work developing the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology,[4] which is an interdisciplinary view of life experience that draws on over a dozen branches of science to create a framework for understanding of our subjective and interpersonal lives.[5]

Siegel's most recent work integrates the theories of Interpersonal Neurobiology with the theories of Mindfulness Practice and proposes that mindfulness practice is a highly developed process of both inter and intra personal attunement.[6]

On October 2, 2009, Siegel was a guest presenter at the Greater Good Science Center Science of a Meaningful Life seminar "Forgiveness and Mindsight", along with psychologist Frederic Luskin. Together they offered tactics on promoting one's social and emotional well-being.
