Internationally acclaimed speaker and writer on the topics of neurobiology and relationships Daniel J. Siegel presents here, in shorthand form, the central concepts of the theory of interpersonal neurobiology he has been developing over the past decade. Written in his characteristic easy-to-understand style, this book is essential reading for clinicians and for both the public familiar with his work and those new to it. Topics such as consciousness, mindfulness and well-being, mirror neurons, and brain plasticity are explored.
