Author Biography

Daniel J. Siegel received his medical degree from Harvard University and completed his postgraduate medical education at the University of California, Los Angeles, with training in pediatrics, general adult psychiatry, and child and adolescent psychiatry. He has served as a National Institute of Mental Health Research Fellow at UCLA, where he studied family interactions, with an emphasis on how attachment experiences influence emotions, behavioral regulation, autobiographical memory and narrative processes.

Dr. Siegel's clinical activities include work as a child, adolescent, adult, and family psychiatrist. An award-winning educator, he formerly directed the UCLA training program in child psychiatry and is the recipient of the departmental teaching award and several honorary fellowships. He is currently Director of the Center for Human Development in Los Angeles, and Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine. He also serves as Director of Interdisciplinary Studies for the international nonprofit Children's Mental Health Alliance in New York.

Dr. Siegel's integrated developmental approach has led him to be invited to local, national and international organizations to address audiences of educators, lawmakers, parents, public administrators, medical and mental health practitioners, and neuroscientists. His work focuses on how the emotional development of the child and adult can be understood by examining the interface between human relationships and basic biological processes. The overall goal of these educational efforts is to provide a scientifically grounded view of human experience that can help facilitate the development of emotional well-being and psychological resilience across the lifespan.
