Description: Please join us for a discussion of Mindsight, by Dr. Daniel J. Siegal, M.D. -- An extraordinary guide to the practice of “mindsight,” the potent skill that is the basis for both emotional and social intelligence. Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and co-director of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center, shows us how to use mindsight to escape the traps that cause recurring conflict in our lives and relationships. Through his synthesis of a broad range of scientific research with applications to everyday life, Dr. Siegel has developed novel approaches that have helped hundreds free themselves from obstacles that block happiness. Cultivating mindsight can help us effect positive, lasting changes in our brainsundefinedand our lives. A book as inspiring as it is profound, Mindsight can help us master our emotions, heal our relationships, and reach our fullest potential.

Neuroscience research is rapidly expanding, and many of the exciting new discoveries can be used to improve daily life and work. The aim of ACR Chicago’s new neuroscience book club is to engage practitioners from diverse fields in critical discussions about the latest neuroscience research in order to find creative ways to apply findings to the practice of conflict resolution, social work, psychology, coaching, and life in general. It is expected that members will leave each meeting with practical techniques they can apply for themselves and clients.

It is recommended that you read the book before the meeting and come with some discussion questions and/or thoughts on applying the information to practice. This will help ensure a lively discussion and that members leave with concrete tips on how the information can inform our lives and work.
