The Paly and Gunn PTSAs invite you to join us for a fascinating look at how understanding brain science–and applying it in our daily lives–can help parents and teens turn challenging conflict into positive communication. Neuropsychiatrist Dan Siegel will share his research findings and reveal how crucial brain development between ages 12 and 24 prepares our young people to thrive as interdependent adults. Dr. Siegel’s insights will teach us how to work together with our teens to enhance self-awareness, support family connections, and reduce vulnerability to risks. We will also learn how to foster a climate of kindness, compassion, and resilience in our families and community. Tickets are free but limited, RSVP here. For questions, contact Gunnparented@gunnpta.org.

Dr. Siegel has written four parenting books. He 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. Dr. Siegel’s mindsight approach applies the emerging principles of interpersonal neurobiology to promote compassion, kindness, resilience, and well-being in our personal lives, our relationships, and our communities. http://www.drdansiegel.com/
