Product Description

Published USA, 2012 (2nd edition)
This book integrates the findings from the fields of attachment research, memory, emotion, neuroscience, genetic research and child psychopathology. Daniel Siegel sets forth a compelling framework for understanding the human mind and its development. How do interpersonal experiences shape the structure and function of the brain? How does brain activity affect what we feel, know and remember? From neurons and brain circuitry to parent-child communication, this volume explores how mental functioning emerges within the context of emotionally connected relationships. Readers gain a scientific foundation for understanding how specific emotional and social experiences can help or hinder development, foster well-being and resilience, and build the cognitive abilities essential for effective learning to take place. The second edition provides expanded discussions of neuroplasticity, epigenetics, mindfulness, the neural correlates of consciousness, and more.
