Dr. Dan Siegel’s Comprehensive Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) Course

Why study Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB)?

Have you ever wondered why the mind might really be?

Have you ever longed for a way to combine science with practical applications to help develop healthy minds?

If so, you may find the interdisciplinary framework of IPNB to be exciting and useful.

In this mastery-level certificate course, Dr. Dan Siegel will show you how to apply IPNB to the everyday challenges of life.

We’ll dive into a new view of what the mind and mental health may actually be, addressing common clinical situations including those arising from adverse childhood experiences and other forms of trauma.

Course syllabus highlights: 

Segment 1: Mind, Brain and Relationships in the Cultivation of Well-Being
-Define what the mind is from an interpersonal neurobiology perspective
-Outline how integration—the linkage of differentiated parts of a system—leads to optimal self-organization experienced as flexibility, adaptability, coherence (resilience across time), energy, and stability
-Identify the role that mindsight – insight, empathy, and integration – plays in well-being and rewarding relationships
-Highlight how the brain develops and changes through relationships, consciousness, and neuroplasticity

Segment 2: Attachments and How Close Relationships Shape Who We Are
-Outline how relational connection influences the growth of connections in the brain
-Identify the role self-compassion plays in integration and well-being
-Identify the role self-compassion plays in integration and well-being
-Outline how relational integration is the basis of neural integration, which is crucial for healthy relationships
-Differentiate among secure, ambivalent, avoidant, and disorganized attachment categories

Segment 3: The First Domain of Integration: Consciousness and Dr. Siegel’s Reflective Practice, “The Wheel of Awareness”
-Outline the scientific underpinnings of the view that integration is the basis of health and resilience
-Define nine domains of integration
-Reframe mental health challenges as impediments to integration in the form of chaos and rigidity
-Identify the process of change toward well-being as opportunities for growth of integration

Segment 4: The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Domains of Integration: Linking the Two Sides of the Brain, the Embodied Brain and Memory
-Implement Bilateral, Vertical and Memory Domains of Integration into self-understanding (and for diagnosis, treatment planning, and intervention, if you are a clinician)
-Identify the roles of and relationship between the left and right sides of the brain
-Recognize impediments to bilateral integration which can lead to chaos or rigidity, and use practical techniques to support the growth of bilateral integration
-Evaluate impairment of integration in memory processes in everyday life and in traumatic experiences
-Explain the role of implicit and explicit memory in trauma resolution and health

Segment 5: The 5th and 6th Domains of Integration: Making Sense of Life through Our Narratives and States of Mind
-Assess the “coherency of narrative”—how we have come to make sense of our lives—and identify how to cultivate mental adaptability
-Reframe “stress” from an IPNB lens in order to build resilience, grit, and a growth mindset
-Develop a coherent narrative and the sensemaking process of self-reflection
-Outline how to identify unresolved trauma or loss within the narrative process
-Explore how an incoherence of narratives impacts the integration of states of mind

Segment 6: The 7th, 8th and 9th Domains of Integration: Interpersonal Relationships, Dimensions of Time, and Facets of Identity
-Identify the key components of feeling felt that highlight interpersonal integration
-Outline how relational integration leads to neural integration
-Evaluate issues of mortality, uncertainty, and transience and the experience of the Arrow of Time in support of temporal integration
-Reframe the experience of identity from an IPNB lens
-Discover how to support identity integration to bring more compassion and kindness into the world

Format: Once you enroll in the class, you will receive details from the Mindsight Institute via email regarding access to your courses and the online learning community. These emails will be sent prior to the opening of the first day of the class.

We will be rolling out each segment in the corresponding month. You will receive access to the first segment prior to the first day of the course being live and open, and then the next segment will be made available to you in the following month, and so on…

This is a self-paced program and you will be able to learn at your convenience during each segment. You are also encouraged to take part in study groups within the online learning community, and to join the live, monthly Q & A sessions with Dan to ask questions and discuss material suggested in the corresponding course sequence.
