    Review quote
    "With the original publication of The Developing Mind, the field of interpersonal neurobiology was born. Siegel's genius for synthesizing and humanizing neuroscience, attachment, and developmental theory made the book a bestseller and attracted thousands to this new field. The second edition benefits from over a decade's worth of additional findings, reflections, ideas, and insights. I encourage you to take Siegel up on his offer to share this fascinating journey, whether for the first time or for a return trip. You won't be disappointed." - Louis Cozolino, Pepperdine University, California, USA "Siegel describes his book as 'a journey into the developing mind,' and no one is better equipped to invite psychotherapists and other students of human impulses to share this remarkable adventure. In clear and inspired prose, he reviews facts and theories about the human brain that can be difficult to grasp. He explains how the brain differentiates and enables the creative and passionate mind of a child to share meaningful intentions, experiences, imaginative beliefs, relationships, community, culture, and language. He puts this understanding in the service of a humane and respectful psychotherapy that can give integrity to young lives that have become anxious, chaotic, and rigid." - Colwyn Trevarthen, University of Edinburgh, UK "When I first read The Developing Mind, I thought it was an amazing and unique book that provided enormous insight into children and their development. I had no idea why a second edition would be needed. But now that I have read this second edition, I realize that the book has reached perfection. Its conceptual integration of mind, brain, and relationships is magnificent. The second edition will provide every teacher, therapist, and parent with a rich understanding of how our interactions with kids shape their brains, minds, and their entire future. Everyone will want to read this book again and again." - John M. Gottman, author of The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work "A tour de force of synthesis and integration. Siegel has woven a rich tapestry that provides a compelling account of how our interpersonal worlds and neural systems form two important pillars of the mind. The second edition brings the latest neuroscientific evidence to the fore; it is a 'must read' for any student or professional interested in mental health, child development, and the brain." - Richard J. Davidson, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA "When The Developing Mind was first published, Siegel's proposal that mind, brain, and relationships represented 'three aspects of one reality' essential to human well-being still seemed closer to inspired speculation than teachable scientific knowledge. Just over a decade later, the neurobiology of interpersonal experience has grown into one of the hottest areas of psychological research. Over two thousand new references in the second edition testify to just how far neuroscientists, developmental psychologists, and clinicians have brought the field as they begin to more fully chart the interplay of mind, body, and relationships. This splendid second edition - at once accessibly written and meticulously documented - provides a comprehensive guide to this emerging science." - Sarah Blaffer Hrdy, University of California-Davis, USA "The seamless integration of scientific knowledge with a profound understanding of subjective experience and human relationships is a rare gift that this book bestows with effortless grace. Siegel continues to excel in his ability to describe the latest findings of neuroscience in accessible language that weaves a masterful tapestry of the synergy linking brain, mind, and experience." - Alicia F. Lieberman,University of California, USA, and Child Trauma Research Program, San Francisco General Hospital, California, USA "The Developing Mind, Second Edition, is a compelling, thoughtful, and immensely readable account of the fascinating ways the brain, mind, and relationships co-evolve and interact throughout development. Rigorously updated, this volume captures the enormous and diverse progress within the field of interpersonal neurobiology over the course of the last decade. Siegel is a wonderful storyteller and teacher with a real gift for bringing the complex to life in such a way that it seems almost simple." - Arietta Slade, The City College and City University of New York, USA
    Flap copy
    This bestselling book put the field of interpersonal neurobiology on the map for many tens of thousands of readers. Daniel J. Siegel goes beyond the nature and nurture divisions that traditionally have constrained much of our thinking about development, exploring the role of interpersonal experiences in forging key connections in the brain. He presents a groundbreaking integrative framework for understanding the emergence of the growing, feeling, communicating mind. Reflecting significant scientific and technical advances, the second edition incorporates new discussions of cutting-edge topics, plus an epilogue describing specific pathways to well-being and therapeutic change. Using a wealth of illustrative examples from clinical practice and everyday life, Siegel traces the interplay of human and neural connections in early childhood and beyond. The book reveals how difficulties with attachment to caregivers can result in problems with memory, self-organization, and emotional regulation. Implications for adult states of mind, emotional competence, and the ability to cope with stress are considered, as are links to such clinical problems as dissociation and depression. Siegel offers compelling insights into how therapeutic and personal relationships can promote healing and integration as the mind continues to develop throughout the lifespan. The second edition provides expanded discussions of neuroplasticity, epigenetics, mindfulness, the neural correlates of consciousness, and more. It also includes useful pedagogical features, such as diagrams and an extensive glossary. Illuminating how and why interpersonal neurobiology matters, this book is essential reading for clinicians, educators, researchers, and students interested in promoting healthy development and resilience. It has been widely adopted as a text in advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in developmental psychology, child development, and clinical practice.
