3.0 out of 5 stars Good summary
Siegel has set out his understanding of neurological research and developed his own clinical methodology - Interpersonal Neurobiology - which has become very popular. This is an excellent introduction to this field. It dies not have the depth of his other works but I would recommend this nonetheless.

This review is from: Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology: An Integrative Handbook of the Mind (Pocket Guides) (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology) (Paperback)
The Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology was written to aid both personal and professional use of `interpersonal neurobiology.' This approach recognizes an integrated brain, which creates our sense of `self' and `others' and the empathic relationships we create throughout our lives. In a sense Siegel's work is developing (through the use of recent neurobiology and technological innovation such as fMRI, CAT scans etc.), the work of John Bowlby (1907-1990). Bowlby was an innovator in clinical psychology. He developed `attachment theory', which examined the importance of a child's emotional bond with their parents, and its effects on adult life and emotional stability.

Siegel believes our internal mental constructs of who we are, are deeply based on these early relationships. The interactions we have with ones nuclear DNA family shape our mental world. Neuroscientist identify that the mind is created by neural interconnections, synaptic firing patterns in the CNS. Interpersonal Neurobiology is proposed as a way of reconciling the gap between `hard' neurobiological concepts and everyday emotional feelings and the recognition of who and what the individual means to themself and others.

This work will be of great interest to those working in mental health, clinical psychology and education, who contact individuals who present with problems relating to low self-esteem, anxiety, difficulty in developing relationships and other similar issues.

This smaller, shorter version of Siegels book is useful for reference, quotes and picking out main points which are already highlighted.
Excellent!
