Daniel Siegel received his medical degree from Harvard University and is an internationally acclaimed author, award-winning educator, and renowned child psychiatrist. He is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, where he is also on the faculty of the Center for Culture, Brain, and Development.

Known for his unique ability to make complicated scientific concepts accessible and exciting to a range of audiences, Dr. Siegel has addressed diverse local, national, and international groups, including Pope John Paul II, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the King of Thailand, Google University, London’s Royal Society of Arts (RSA), and TEDx.
His books include Mindsight, Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology, The Developing Mind, The Mindful Therapist, The Whole-Brain Child, Brainstorm, and No-Drama Discipline: The Whole-Brain Way to Calm the Chaos and Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind.
