Description

Are you struggling to effectively treat behavior disorders, anxiety, and mood disorders in children and adolescents?

New York Times bestselling author, world-renowned neuropsychiatrist and bestselling co-author of The Whole-Brain Child, Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., helps you crack the code of the adolescent brain with groundbreaking research in interpersonal neurobiology based on his newest New York Times Bestselling book, Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain. Dr. Siegel explores how brain development affects teenage behavior and relationships and how mastering this knowledge helps promote more effective psychotherapy, targeted treatment interventions and better understanding between parents and their teens.

You will understand attachment issues in adolescents and strategies for clinical issues including, substance abuse, sexual identity, and many more!

Rather than seeing adolescence as a period of immaturity or dysfunction, this view suggests that the essence of adolescence the emotional spark, social engagement, novelty-seeking, and creative explorations can best be harnessed by supporting these important and necessary aspects of our human development.

 

Dr. Dan Siegel's inside out approach to the second dozen years of life gives us an exciting new clinical perspective on the essence of adolescence. Understand the clinical implications of the four pillars of adolescence and discover how these pillars are a necessary set of characteristics that are essential for both the individual development and for the health and adaptation of our species. These features of the teenage brain set the stage for changes that not only shape our life as adolescents, but can surprisingly be seen as essential to thriving in adulthood. How we as clinicians approach adolescence as a period and adolescents as individuals can make all the difference in how these important years are navigated well.
