Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation

Product Description

Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation

Imported from USA

From a pioneer in the field of mental health comes a groundbreaking book on the healing power of "mindsight," the potent
skill that allows you to make positive changes in your brain–and in your life.

Foreword by Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

• Is there a memory that torments you, or an irrational fear you can't shake?
• Do you sometimes become unreasonably angry or upset and find it hard to calm down?
• Do you ever wonder why you can't stop behaving the way you do, no matter how hard you try?
• Are you and your child (or parent, partner, or boss) locked in a seemingly inevitable pattern of conflict?

What if you could escape traps like these and live a fuller, richer, happier life? This isn't mere speculation but the
result of twenty-five years of careful hands-on clinical work by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. A Harvard-trained physician, Dr.
Siegel is one of the revolutionary global innovators in the integration of brain science into the practice of
psychotherapy. Using case histories from his practice, he shows how, by following the proper steps, nearly everyone can
learn how to focus their attention on the internal world of the mind in a way that will literally change the wiring and
architecture of their brain.

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 of patients. And now he has written the first book that will help
all of us understand the potential we have to create our own lives. Showing us mindsight in action, Dr. Siegel describes

• a sixteen-year-old boy with bipolar disorder who uses meditation and other techniques instead of drugs to calm the
emotional storms that made him suicidal
• a woman paralyzed by anxiety, who uses mindsight to discover, in an unconscious memory of a childhood accident, the
source of her dread
• a physician–the author himself–who pays attention to his intuition, which he experiences as a "vague, uneasy feeling
in my belly, a gnawing restlessness in my heart and my gut," and tracks down a patient who could have gone deaf because
of an inaccurately written prescription for an ear infection
• a twelve-year-old girl with OCD who learns a meditation that is "like watching myself from outside myself" and, using
a form of internal dialogue, is able to stop the compulsive behaviors that have been tormenting her

These and many other extraordinary stories illustrate how mindsight can help us master our emotions, heal our
relationships, and reach our fullest potential.
