With health, lifestyle, and wellness issues of growing concern among veterinarians, neuropsychiatrist and New York Times bestselling author Daniel J. Siegel, MD, will share skills that equine practitioners can use to create more presence in their professional and personal lives when he delivers the keynote address at the 2015 American Association of Equine Practitioners’ Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Siegel’s presentation, “The Art and Science of Resiliency (in Our Lives),” will explore the neuroplasticity of the brain in relation to the teachable skill of being present, receptive to, and aware of what is happening as it is happening, which leads to improvements in mental well-being, relationship skills, and overall medical health. The keynote address is sponsored by Merck Animal Health.

He has published extensively for the professional audience and serves as founding editor for the Norton Professional Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology, which includes over three dozen textbooks. Siegel is an internationally acclaimed author whose books include Mindsight; Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology; The Developing Mind, Second Edition; The Mindful Therapist; The Mindful Brain; Parenting from the Inside Out (with Mary Hatzell, MEd); and the three New York Times bestsellers: Brainstorm, The Whole-Brain Child (with Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D.) and No-Drama Discipline (with Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D.).
