Yes Brain Child: Help Your Child be More Resilient, Independent and Creative

From the bestselling parenting experts behind the whole-brain child comes a highly successful plan for helping your child become more independent and resilient.

Children can often act out or shut down when faced with a setback or a tricky issue like homework, food or screen time. This is what acclaimed parenting experts Dr Siegel and Dr Bryson call the ‘No Brain’ response. But you can help your child develop the ability to cope, solve their own problems and thrive by nurturing their ‘Yes Brain’.

Drawing on their successful work with thousands of parents and children from all backgrounds, Dr Siegel and Dr Bryson provide the advice, tools and activities to help parents with children of all ages.

This is what the ‘Yes Brain’ approach looks like in action:

  • A 5-year-old boy thinks about his first day at school and says, ‘I’m nervous but I’ll give it a try.’
  • An 8 year-old girl says, ‘I’d like to join the football team, even though none of my friends like football.’
  • A 14 year-old boy looks at a test he’s earned a D- for and says, ‘That’s not the mark I wanted but it’s not the end of the world. I’ll ask the teacher how I can improve.’

    On Becoming a Better Therapist

    by Barry Duncan

    For many therapists, making sense of the latest developments in psychotherapy can feel overwhelming. Every day it seems there are dozens of therapeutic approaches, fully-manualized treatments hot off the press, and twenty more clinical tests meant to measure the precise extent of evolving psychopathologies. In therapy with individual clients, it can often be difficult to know objectively if you're achieving the desired results--or worse, you might know you're not reaching a particular client but have no idea why, and no idea what to do about it. An accumulation of unfruitful... More info
