Does Understanding the Brain Make Us Wiser?
This morning’s keynote with Daniel Siegel, one of the leaders in integrating brain science with psychotherapy, was a fabulous way to end a weekend full of thinking about wisdom and its applications in the field of psychotherapy and in the larger world. He began his talk by talking about how, when he first began working in the field, there wasn’t a solid definition of the mind.

Over the last 35 years, one of the most noteworthy aspects of the Networker Symposium has been the depth and wisdom of the keynoters who address the conference. This year’s Symposium is no exception.
Opening the conference with a morning keynote on Friday is Andrew Weil, the world’s leading proponent of integrative medicine. He’ll be discussing the meaning of integrative mental health and how therapists can enrich their knowledge and understandings to help clients—and themselves—achieve optimal health. To learn more about integrative mental health, see the recent Networker article on his work here.
Next will be Scott Miller’s luncheon address on “Charting Your Path to Clinical Excellence,” a topic that’s been much discussed in the Networker community during this past year. He’ll share what research is showing us about how to achieve excellence, and how we can apply these understandings to gain mastery in the consulting room, as well as in our personal lives.
Mary Pipher has achieved national renown as the author of Reviving Ophelia, and she will be inspiring attendees as the Saturday morning keynote speaker. Her subject—“Facing the Challenge of 21st-Century Activism” is a compelling presentation of her vision of the many ways therapists can influence the world-at-large and why doing so can make us feel more joyous, connected, and empowered.
Pat Ogden will be Saturday’s luncheon address speaker and she’ll cover her transforming, trailblazing work that incorporating bodywork in psychotherapy.
Later that day, Jane Fonda will be speaking with Networker Editor Rich Simon about her life, career, and beliefs about how to improve your life while growing older. Yes, that’s right… Jane Fonda will be at the Networker Symposium! You really won’t want to miss this conference and especially not this particular dinner event.
Finally, Sunday holds even more opportunities for discovery, as brain science pioneer Dan Siegel will be discussing whether our growing knowledge about brain science is making us wiser. If you’ve never heard Dan Siegel speak before—or even if you have—his presentations are always a treat.

When you ask a therapist about the single quality that distinguishes the young clinician from a weathered old pro who’s seen and heard it all, the answer is likely to have something to do with wisdom. It’s a word with enormous resonance that seems to get at the heart of what psychotherapy is all about. But what do therapists actually know about wisdom? Clinical theories, techniques, how to fill out insurance forms—sure, we know a lot about those things. But wisdom?01.17.2012 Posted In: Symposium 2012 By Rich Simon

After the session, please take a few minutes to engage in the Comment Board and let us know what you think. What did Schore discuss that was new to you?

04.14.2011 Posted In: P004 New Perspectives on Practice: The Great Attachment Debate By Psychotherapy Networker
Welcome to “The Attuned Therapist: Attachment Theory in Action,” with Dan Siegel—the third session in our newest webinar course, “The Great Attachment Debate.” As you probably know by now—if you attended the 2010 Symposium, read our March/April 2010 issue on attachment, or heard from Networker Editor Rich Simon in this webinar—a “great debate” on attachment occurred live—spontaneously—at last year’s conference.
At one of Jerome Kagan’s workshops, his comments regarding attachment theory prompted Attachment Theory advocate Dan Siegel, M.D., to unexpectedly get up in front of the crowd and respond on the spot. This heated debate between two respected minds in the field sparked much discussion at the conference and afterward.
In this webinar session, Siegel will discuss how Attachment Theory is integrated into his clinical approach. He’ll talk about how to use the Adult Attachment Interview in assessing clients, applying brain science in the consulting room, brain integration and how it can enhance self-regulation, and much more.
Please take a few moments to comment on what you felt was most striking, most relevant, or to ask any questions you may have. We encourage you, as always, to include your name and hometown with your comments. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with this community.
