The recording is available on demand and can be purchased on our online learning center and taken as a course for 1.5 CE hours.*
Interpersonal neurobiology and Dr. Dan Siegel’s Mindsight approach defines mind as an embodied and relational process that regulates the flow of energy and information. This definition allows us to move deeply into understanding new ways of seeing the interconnections within ourselves (between the brain and body) and between ourselves and others (interpersonal relationships).
- Define the mind
- List the 9 domains of integration
- Describe 3 aspects of neural plasticity
In this presentation, Dr. Siegel discusses the importance of integration, a central concept in the field of interpersonal neurobiology and Mindsight. Defined as the linkage of differentiated components of a system, integration is viewed as the core mechanism in the cultivation of well-being. In an individual’s mind, integration involves the connection of separate aspects of mental processes to each other, such as thought with feeling, bodily sensation with logic. In a relationship, integration entails each person being respected for his or her autonomy and differentiated self while at the same time being linked to others in empathic communication.
For the brain, integration means that separated areas with their unique functions, in the skull and throughout the body, become linked to each other through synaptic connections. These integrated linkages enable more intricate functions to emerge—such as insight, empathy, intuition and morality. When integration is present, flexibility, resilience and harmony result; when integration is absent, chaos or rigidity occur. An examination of the DSM (III or IV) reveals pervasive examples of symptoms and syndromes that reflect states of chaos, rigidity, or both. Beyond seeing the DSM in a new light, Dr. Siegel’s presentation focuses on the clinical utility of integration as a central mechanism of health and presents strategies that patients can use to monitor and modify energy and information flow with more clarity and power.
