Brainstorm: Cultivating Your Inner Adolescence, An Evening Event with Daniel J. Siegel

Saturday, October 10, 2015
7:30 pm
Join Daniel J. Siegel, MD, professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center, and the executive director of the Mindsight Institute, to explore the nature of the changes in the teenage brain and how those changes set the stage for changes in adolescent mental, physical, and interpersonal well-being. Using an “inside-out approach” to the second dozen years of life gives us an exciting new perspective on the essence of adolescence. Emotional intensity, social engagement, novelty-seeking, and creative explorations are not aspects of an “immature” stage of development but actually a set of characteristics essential for both the individual’s development and for the health and adaptation of our species. Come learn how approaching adolescence as a period and adolescents as individuals can make all the difference in how these important years are navigated well. One exciting implication of this view, too, is that four of the most robust ways in which adults can keep their brains young and vital is to have the passion of an emotional spark, the connection and collaboration of social engagement, the courage of novelty-seeking, and the imagination of creative exploration.

Admission Open to registered guests only; no general public tickets available. Seating is limited.
