FROM A PIONEER IN THE FIELD OF MENTAL HEALTH COMES A GROUNDBREAKING BOOK ON THE HEALING POWER OF MINDSIGHT, THE CAPACITY FOR INSIGHT AND EMPATHY THAT ALLOWS YOU TO MAKE POSITIVE CHANGES IN YOUR BRAIN AND IN YOUR LIFE. A Harvard-trained doctor and clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, Daniel Siegel coined the term mindsight to describe the innovative integration of brain science with the practice of psychotherapy. With a wealth of personal, hands-on experience and access to the latest research, Dr Siegel is ideally placed to introduce this powerful therapeutic tool to a wide audience. Using interactive examples and case histories from his clinical practice, he shows 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 in our lives, to harness the power of our minds to master our emotions, heal our relationships, transform our sense of well-being, and reach our fullest potential.
