Prolific child neurologist and author, Dr. Siegel uses a variety of images to explain what he thinks should be taught to children in America.
He uses his hand to provide a concrete visual model of the brain.
He also summarizes his “mindsight” model as a combination of brain, mind, and relationships. He expounds on the over emphasis of brain, or somatic, focus in mainstream culture and medical school. He argues we neglect the education of mind and relationships after children graduate kindergarten.
