Can we describe a “healthy mind”? Defining mind as an “embodied and relational process that regulates the flow of energy and information” allows us to move deeply into understanding new ways of seeing the interconnections among brain, interpersonal relationships and the mind. Dr. Siegel outlines strategies to monitor and modify energy and information flow with more clarity and power, and also describes how the concept of integration can serve as an organizing principle that illuminates mindsight, harmony, resilience, and vitality.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Integrate information about a range of sciences to explore a working definition of the human mind.
  2. Adopt a new approach to clinical assessment examining ways that chaos and rigidity reveal impairments to mental health.
  3. Apply a working definition of mental health as integration to a range of clinical situations.
