CE Special Event: Interpersonal Neurobiology
Special Event | Interpersonal Neurobiology: The Social Brain and the Embodied Relational Mind featuring Dr. Daniel Siegel
This presentation will provide an overview of the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology and its view of the mind as an embodied and relational process that regulates the flow of energy and information. This perspective of a mind, broader than the brain and bigger than the body, will be contrasted to studies of neuroscience, and in particular to views of the social brain. Is mind simply an “output of brain firing” as is so often stated? Or is the mind and its several facets of subjective experience, consciousness, and information processing actually part of a system that includes the brain in the head, but extends far beyond that skull-encased organ of the body?
Dr. Daniel Siegel, the renown psychiatry professor and best-selling author, known for his unique ability to make complicated scientific concepts exciting and accessible, is "coming" to Rutgers. He takes neurobiology and translates it into clear and useful concepts for mental health professionals. Attendees leave Dr. Siegel's presentations feeling enlightened and energized.
