Khiron House is delighted to present this important two-day workshop by Dr Dan Siegel and Khiron House

Eminent psychiatrist Dr Dan Siegel is a brilliant speaker and teacher, who through sincerity and authenticity, animatedly educates us on his ground-breaking discoveries regarding where mind, brain and relationships meet. This life changing two-day workshop explains how unresolved developmental trauma can impact not only our relationship with ourselves, but our relationship with those we love the most. Most importantly, his workshop helps us begin the profound journey moving toward healing, wholeness and relational intimacy.

Day one is led by Dr. Siegel providing theory, education and understanding. Day two is lead by Khiron House’s clinical team allowing opportunities for experiential application.

Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. is currently clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and the founding co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center. He is also the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute, which offers online learning and in-person lectures that focus on how the development of mindsight in individuals, families and communities can be enhanced by examining the interface of human relationships and basic biological processes.

Dr Siegel is an author who has published extensively for the professional audience. He serves as the Founding Editor for the Norton Professional Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology which contains over three dozen textbooks. Dr. Siegel’s books include Mindsight, Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology, The Developing Mind, Second Edition, The Mindful Therapist, The Mindful Brain, Parenting from the Inside Out (with Mary Hartzell, M.Ed.), The New York Times bestsellers The Whole-Brain Child (with Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D.), Brainstorm, and his latest No-Drama Discipline (with Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D.).

Dr Siegel’s unique ability to make complicated scientific concepts exciting has led him to be invited to address diverse local, national and international groups of mental health professionals, neuroscientists, corporate leaders, educators, parents, public administrators, healthcare providers, policy-makers, mediators, judges, and clergy. He has lectured for the King of Thailand, Pope John Paul II, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Google University, London’s Royal Society of Arts (RSA), and TEDx. He lives in Southern California with his family. For more information, please visit: www.DrDanSiegel.com.

    Further to:
    I would very much appreciate a more detailed outline for the proposed workshop; is it possible to have more information on the theoretical and practical areas that will be covered over the two days.

    It is a little difficult to keep one’s dairy completely open for a weekend in April which is getting quite close. Is there any indication of timing for full details of the proposed workshop? Early notice will be appreciated, many thanks.

    I am interested in booking for this workshop and also could you send details of the next Somatic Equine Workshop? We have been looking for a programme like this for a while now and have been recommended your training.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Warm wishes
