Daniel J. Siegel received his medical degree from Harvard University and completed his postgraduate medical education at UCLA with training in pediatrics and child, adolescent and adult psychiatry.

Dr. Siegel is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and the founding co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA. An award-winning educator, he is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and recipient of several honorary fellowships. Dr. Siegel is also the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute, an educational organization, which offers online learning and in-person seminars that focus on how the development of mindsight in individuals, families and communities can be enhanced by examining the interface of human relationships and basic biological processes. His psychotherapy practice includes children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. He serves as the Medical Director of the LifeSpan Learning Institute and on the Advisory Board of the Blue School in New York City, which has built its curriculum around Dr. Siegel’s Mindsight approach.
Dr. Siegel has published extensively for the professional audience. He is the author of numerous articles, chapters, and the internationally acclaimed text, “The Developing Mind: How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are” (3rd. Ed., Guilford, 2020). This book introduces the field of interpersonal neurobiology, and has been utilized by a number of clinical and research organizations worldwide. Dr. Siegel serves as the Founding Editor for the Norton Professional Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology which contains over eighty textbooks. “The Mindful Brain: Reflection and Attunement in the Cultivation of Well-Being” (Norton, 2007) explores the nature of mindful awareness as a process that harnesses the social circuitry of the brain as it promotes mental, physical, and relational health. “The Mindful Therapist: A Clinician's Guide to Mindsight and Neural Integration” (Norton, 2010), explores the application of focusing techniques for the clinician’s own development, as well as their clients' development of mindsight and neural integration. “Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology: An Integrative Handbook of the Mind” (Norton, 2012), explores how to apply the interpersonal neurobiology approach to developing a healthy mind, an integrated brain, and empathic relationships. The New York Times bestseller, “Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human” (Norton, 2016), offers a deep exploration of our mental lives as they emerge from the body and our relations to each other and the world around us. His New York Times bestseller “Aware: The Science and Practice of Presence” (Tarcher/Perigee, 2018) provides practical instruction for mastering the Wheel of Awareness, a life-changing tool for cultivating more focus, presence, and peace in one's day-to-day life. Dr. Siegel's publications for professionals and the public have been translated into over 40 forty languages.
Dr. Siegel’s book, “Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation” (Bantam, 2010), offers the general reader an in-depth exploration of the power of the mind to integrate the brain and promote well-being. He has written six parenting books, including the three New York Times bestsellers “Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain” (Tarcher/Penguin, 2014); “The Whole-Brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind” (Random House, 2011) and “No-Drama Discipline: The Whole-Brain Way to Calm the Chaos and Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind” (Bantam, 2014), both with Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D., “The Power of Showing Up: How Parental Presence Shapes Who Our Kids Become and How Their Brains Get Wired” (Ballantine Books 2020), “The Yes Brain: How to Cultivate Courage, Curiosity, and Resilience in Your Child” (Bantam, 2018) also with Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D., and “Parenting from the Inside Out: How a Deeper Self-Understanding Can Help You Raise Children Who Thrive” (Tarcher/Penguin, 2003) with Mary Hartzell, M.Ed.
Dr. Siegel's unique ability to make complicated scientific concepts exciting and accessible has led him to be invited to address diverse local, national and international groups including mental health professionals, neuroscientists, corporate leaders, educators, parents, public administrators, healthcare providers, policy-makers, mediators, judges, and clergy. He has lectured for the King of Thailand, Pope John Paul II, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Google University, and London's Royal Society of Arts (RSA). He lives in Southern California with his family.
