Siegel) and No-Drama Discipline (Random House, 2014, co-authored with Daniel J. Siegel). Understanding the Whole-Brain approach will allow educators and therapists to:
- Consider ACE (Adverse Childhood Experience) from an interpersonal, neurobiology lens
- Apply the framework of interpersonal neurobiology to child development and discipline strategies
- Understand different types of integration that will allow them to teach in revolutionary ways;
- Utilize Whole-Brain strategies to lay the groundwork for promoting integration and mental health in parents and their children;
- Be intentional about teaching specific caregiving experiences to shape how children’s brains are wired and therefore function;
- Teach kids about their own brain so they can have additional tools for self-regulation and make better decisions;
- Work with parents to establish a consistent, overarching, Whole-Brain approach to discipline
- Give kids tools to change their own struggles so they can be less reactive and more resilient.
