How One Client Effectively Applied Dan Siegel’s Neurobiology Lesson

There are many connections between neurobiology and psychotherapy that therapists need to be aware of, but simply learning about them isn’t enough. How can you incorporate this vital knowledge into your clinical work in a way that clients will also understand?

In this video excerpt from his session in our webcast series, Why Neuroscience Matters, Dan Siegel gives a great example from his own work of a client who not only absorbed, but also successfully applied, a neurobiological principle that Dan taught him.

Watch the clip below to hear Dan—author of The Mindful Therapist—talk about a client who found himself in an upsetting situation and how he used Dan’s teachings on mirror neurons to bring himself out of distress.

This is just one example of neuroscience’s effect on therapy that is covered in this series.

One Response to Teaching Neuroscience to Our Clients

    we can be our own mirror/sponge (I love this phrase) by witnessing our own distress “at a distance”. I have experienced this but having it affirmed by your course and especially Rick Hanson, steps it up a notch. Thanks for what you do!!!!
