“Bienvenidos a un viaje al corazón de nuestras vidas.” Con estas palabras, Daniel Siegel, científico, psiquiatra, educador e investigador puntero en el ámbito de la salud mental, nos invita a una brillante exploración de lo que significa vivir aquí y ahora, a experimentar el momento con todos nuestros sentidos, a ser “mindfully conscientes”.

El Mindfulness no es una moda pasajera. Las culturas y religiones de todo el mundo han recurrido a diversos métodos, desde la meditación a la plegaria; desde el yoga al tai-chi, para ayudar a los individuos a obtener un mayor bienestar centrando su atención y sintonizando con el presente. El Dr. Siegel nos explica que se ha demostrado científicamente que la atención plena refuerza nuestro bienestar físico, psicológico y social. A partir de esta evidencia empírica, Siegel propone una innovadora síntesis de investigación y experiencia propia sobre el valor del mindfulness para nuestra vida interior, nuestras relaciones interpersonales y el aumento del bienestar.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The authors of No-Drama Discipline and The Yes Brain explain the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures in this pioneering, practical book.
 
“Simple, smart, and effective solutions to your child’s struggles.”—Harvey Karp, M.D.
 
In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the bestselling Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson offer a revolutionary approach to child rearing with twelve key strategies that foster healthy brain development, leading to calmer, happier children. The authors explain—and make accessible—the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures. The “upstairs brain,” which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-twenties. And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain. No wonder kids throw tantrums, fight, or sulk in silence. By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, you can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate your child’s brain and foster vital growth.            
 
Complete with age-appropriate strategies for dealing with day-to-day struggles and illustrations that will help you explain these concepts to your child, The Whole-Brain Child shows you how to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development so that your children can lead balanced, meaningful, and connected lives.
 
“[A] useful child-rearing resource for the entire family . . . The authors include a fair amount of brain science, but they present it for both adult and child audiences.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“Strategies for getting a youngster to chill out [with] compassion.”—The Washington Post
 
“This erudite, tender, and funny book is filled with fresh ideas based on the latest neuroscience research. I urge all parents who want kind, happy, and emotionally healthy kids to read The Whole-Brain Child. This is my new baby gift.”—Mary Pipher, Ph.D., author of Reviving Ophelia and The Shelter of Each Other

“Gives parents and teachers ideas to get all parts of a healthy child’s brain working together.”—Parent to Parent
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The pioneering experts behind The Whole-Brain Child and The Yes Brain tackle the ultimate parenting challenge: discipline.
 
“A lot of fascinating insights . . . an eye-opener worth reading.”—Parents

Highlighting the fascinating link between a child’s neurological development and the way a parent reacts to misbehavior, No-Drama Discipline provides an effective, compassionate road map for dealing with tantrums, tensions, and tears—without causing a scene.
 
Defining the true meaning of the “d” word (to instruct, not to shout or reprimand), the authors explain how to reach your child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into an opportunity for growth. By doing so, the cycle of negative behavior (and punishment) is essentially brought to a halt, as problem solving becomes a win/win situation. Inside this sanity-saving guide you’ll discover
 
• strategies that help parents identify their own discipline philosophy—and master the best methods to communicate the lessons they are trying to impart
• facts on child brain development—and what kind of discipline is most appropriate and constructive at all ages and stages
• the way to calmly and lovingly connect with a child—no matter how extreme the behavior—while still setting clear and consistent limits
• tips for navigating your child through a tantrum to achieve insight, empathy, and repair
• twenty discipline mistakes even the best parents make—and how to stay focused on the principles of whole-brain parenting and discipline techniques
 
Complete with candid stories and playful illustrations that bring the authors’ suggestions to life, No-Drama Discipline shows you how to work with your child’s developing mind, peacefully resolve conflicts, and inspire happiness and strengthen resilience in everyone in the family.

«Daniel Siegel y Tina Payne Bryson han escrito una guía magistral y fácil de leer para ayudar a desarrollar la inteligencia emocional de los niños. Este brillante método convierte las interacciones cotidianas en valiosas oportunidades para moldear el cerebro. Cualquiera que se preocupe por los niños –y que quiera a un niño– debería leer El cerebro del niño».Daniel Goleman, autor de Inteligencia emocional

«Una completa guía que, desde un riguroso enfoque científico, descubre a los progenitores las oportunidades que diariamente les brinda una situación o una simple conversación para ayudar a sus hijos, de 0 a 12 años, a integrar todas las experiencias –buenas y malas– en su desarrollo vital y aprender de ellas para formarse como adultos.» Faro de Vigo

Tu hijo de dos años tiene una rabieta en una tienda. Tu hijo de cuatro se niega a vestirse. Tu hijo de quinto curso está de suplente en el banquillo, enfurruñado, en lugar de jugar en el campo. ¿Acaso los niños conspiran para que la vida de sus padres sea un desafío continuo? No, lo que pasa es que su cerebro en desarrollo lleva la voz cantante. En este libro innovador y práctico, el neuropsiquiatra Daniel J. Siegel y la experta en educación infantil Tina Payne Bryson desmitifican las crisis y los conflictos, explicando los nuevos conocimientos científicos sobre cómo está constituido el cerebro infantil y cómo se desarrolla. Aplicando estos descubrimientos al día a día, es posible convertir conflictos, discusiones o miedos en una oportunidad para integrar el cerebro del niño y ayudarlo a ser una persona responsable, afectuosa y feliz. En El cerebro del niño padres y educadores tendrán a su alcance pautas claras para entender y manejar los distintos conflictos propios de los niños en función de cada edad, así como herramientas para resolverlos y ayudar a la familia a progresar.
