Summit 2019

SESSION 5: Dan Siegel MD | Deep Mechanisms of the 2e Brain: Prequel to the Talk in Day 1 of the Summit

Talk Description, Speaker Bio, and Resources

Ready for a deep brain dive with Dr. Dan Siegel? In a prequel to his talk that aired on Day 1, Dr. Siegel explains the brain mechanisms of the "differently wired" child. Dr. Siegel talks about the three step process - how the brain makes categories, concepts, and linguistic symbols - and how these things determine how our brain perceives the world in a different way. Dr. Siegel teaches us to celebrate children whose brains don't conform to the category and concept "norms" in the world, and whose brain has the gift of automatically thinking outside of the box!
