Mind: Explore the most recent science of what the mind is and how to optimize mental health. Master the foundational concepts of integration, energy flow, consciousness, and subjective experience to provide effective therapeutic interventions. 

Brain: Dive into the fascinating field of neuroplasticity as Dr. Siegel highlights the structure and function of the embodied brain and the bodily systems that shape our mental lives. Take away tools to help clients integrate their body and its nervous system to live with well-being and a happiness that includes meaning, connection, and emotional balance. 

Relationships: Explore all stages of development, from conception to adulthood, illuminating how our early life experiences and relationships shape who we become.
