Présentation de l'éditeur
This bestselling book put the field of interpersonal neurobiology on the map for many tens of thousands of readers. Daniel J. Siegel goes beyond the nature and nurture divisions that traditionally have constrained much of our thinking about development, exploring the role of interpersonal relationships in forging key connections in the brain. He presents a groundbreaking new way of thinking about the emergence of the human mind and the process by which each of us becomes a feeling, thinking, remembering individual. Illuminating how and why neurobiology matters, this book is essential reading for clinicians, educators, researchers, and students interested in promoting healthy development and resilience.

This book has changed my concept of not only the developing mind, but of a concept of how I think of the mind, brain and experience of relationships.
If you are a doctor or a psychologist you will probably love it, but I found it way too complex to spend the time necessary to get deeply into it.
Although it is brilliant I have to take it slow to absorb it all.
In the preface, Siegel discloses his thesis; that "interactions with the environment, especially relationships with other people, directly shape the development of the brain's structure and function" (p. xii). Siegel fully unveils to his readership the fundamental principles behind his perspective and then summarizes the content and contribution of each subsequent chapter. While some readers might be tempted to read those introductory comments and feel that they have grasped the focus of the text, the detailed introduction serves as more of an enticement to read further.
After a brief review of brain neurobiology and development, Siegel's begins his presentation with a discussion on memory. He notes that "information is encoded and retrieved through the synaptic changes that direct the flow of energy through the neural system, the brain" (p. 24). Siegel addresses the dynamics at work within the brain's structure that allow for plasticity and the implantation of experiential history.
Siegel then presents a thorough yet concise overview of attachment theory noting how early experiences relate to self-organization. He comments on how current research on emotion has demonstrated that emotion is not found only within the confines of the limbic regions, but is "found throughout the entire brain" (p. 122). He also posits that emotional activations are generated by the brain's value systems; he proposes that this dictates that both emotion and meaning come from the same source.
In a discussion about representations, Siegel focuses upon the interactions within the right and left sides of the brain and how the distinct features of each respective side contribute to relationship development, representational process, and reflection. Siegel relates this discussion about bilateral process to his foundational premise by noting how crucial it is that early neural connections share both energy and information. It is at this juncture that Siegel begins to expand further to address treatment, noting how focused reflective dialogue may foster bilateral integration.
Siegel furthers his argument by introducing the concept of the state of mind, a "clustering of functionally synergistic processes that allow the mind as a whole to form a cohesive state of activity" (p. 209). As development moves from simplicity toward complexity, the state of mind is set by both context and history. Early developmental activation shapes the structure of the brain's circuitry in such a way that later, contemporary states of mind are formed and reinforced based upon that early activation. Growth, in this perspective, then hinges upon the ability to create a stable, flexible coherence.
The topic of self-regulation is the natural outflow of the furthering discussion on mind organization and integration. Siegel addresses the irresponsible reductionistic thinking present in genetics vs. learning arguments. He posits that new information is interpreted by the brain's structure, both prior experiences and biological reality. This flow of energy and information is directed by emotional engagement with others. For adequate self-organization to occur, there must be neural integration. As noted in his introduction and as demonstrated strategically throughout The Developing Mind, it is Siegel's assertion that emotion is the central component to integration and that self-integration "is continually created by an interaction of internal neurophysiological processes and interpersonal relationships" (p. 314).
Siegel accomplishes the purpose established at the outset. He explores memory, attachment, emotion, representation, states of mind, self-regulation, interpersonal connection, and integration and presents them as a network that explains how self-regulation, interpersonal connections and mental integration are formed. The Developing Mind addresses etiology within this framework as well as practical applications for treatment. His key contribution to his field is an engaging read for his intended audience.
Moments of one's mental states are deserving of conscious awareness.
Making of a mind is achieved the participation of two people, particularly a parent.
A mind is created as another mind presents itself or presents an absence at particular instances two minds meet.
Mental states are constructed concepts giving rise to mayhem or order.
Each form extends either the expression of knowing or not knowing.
The reasons are vast for either.
Either mental bedlam or harmonious array, and between either are degrees of thought and emotion, builds the perception, the position, one senses in relation to others.
By your mindfully reading this book you might experience increasing awareness of knowing.
For me, the book's subject matter is consulted regularly.
Paragraphs are annotated; whole pages paraphrased; its reference, researched.
Its passages are pondered repeatedly.
After all, the content of this book deserves an inquiring mind's re-cognition.
