? Is there a memory that torments you, or an irrational fear you can?t shake Do you sometimes become unreasonably angry or upset and find it hard to calm down Do you ever wonder why you can?t stop behaving the way you do, no matter how hard you try Are you and your child (or parent, partner, or boss) locked in a seemingly inevitable pattern of conflict?What if you could escape traps like these and live a fuller, richer, happier life? This isn?t mere speculation but the result of twenty-five years of careful hands-on clinical work by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. A Harvard-trained physician, Dr. Siegel is one of the revolutionary global innovators in the integration of brain science into the practice of psychotherapy. Using case histories from his practice, he shows you how to focus your attention on the internal world of the mind in a way that will literally change the wiring and architecture of your brain. An audiobook as inspiring as it is informative, as practical as it is profound, Mindsight offers exciting new proof that we aren?t hardwired to behave in certain ways but instead have the ability to harness the power of our minds to resculpt the neural pathways of our brains in ways that will be life-transforming.
From everyday stress to severe trauma, many obstacles to a full life can be overcome by developing what Dr. Daniel J. Siegel calls a oemindsight, a our ability to perceive the mind and literally redirect the flow of energy and information within our brains. Through this powerful capacity for insight and empathy, we can a oerewirea crucial connections, create dynamic linkages, and open ourselves to relationships in a new way.
Based on thirty years of work with patients and on research drawn from nearly a dozen scientific fields, Mindsight brings these concepts alive through vivid case histories that show what happens when mindsight is missing, and how it can be strengthened in nine essential areas. Listeners of My Stroke of Insight or The Brain that Changes Itself will discover new ideas about memory, emotion, trauma and brain-mind integration a plus a richer sense of their own humanity.
