Hear Dan & Tina Share Stories & Bloopers from The Yes Brain Audiobook

This is a fun podcast featuring Daniel J. Siegel M.D. and Tina Payne Bryson Ph.D.. In it, they talk about their experiences recording The Yes Brain Audiobook, share which words they found the hardest to pronunciation, and more.  

“Our book is about what parents and other caregivers can do in their interactions with their kids that actually develop a more integrated brain that creates a receptive state for learning and keeping the inner spark of your child alive and well."

The Other F Word: How to Move Our Brains Through Failure

This is a recording from my interview on The Other F Word Podcast. Here's a description:

Dr. Tina Payne Bryson is a Psychotherapist, Founder/Executive director of The Center for Connection in Pasadena, and the co-author (with Dr. Dan Siegel) of The Yes Brain as well as two New York Times best-selling books, The Whole Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline. Besides being an expert in the field of science and relationships, Tina is also a parent of three boys, and uses her professional research and personal experience to understand what happens in the body and the nervous system during times of stress, overwhelm and failure. Her blend of research and personal stories highlight ways to bring ourselves and our children to a place of connection and empathy at a time in our society when we are struggling with alarming rates of anxiety and teen suicide. In this passionate conversation, Tina beautifully articulates how failure is an invitation to move into a new way of being.

Sunshine Parenting: The Yes Brain

In Episode 20, I’m chatting with Dr. Tina Payne Bryson about her latest book – The Yes Brain – co-authored with Dr. Daniel Siegel. I love this book and highly recommend that every parent, educator, and person who works with kids reads it this year. I found it to be helpful not just in my work with kids but in understanding myself (and my own “Yes Brain”!) better.

Tina was also interview by Sunshine Parenting in November 2017. You can watch the video chat on Facebook or Youtube.
