Event description
Integrating Both for Belonging and Thriving Relationships After COVID with Dr. Dan Siegel

About this event

This presentation will offer a perspective from the interdisciplinary framework of Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) on how the challenges of the current pandemic are influencing the environmental experiences of children and adolescents.

Who you are is both an internal (Me) and an interconnected (We) self that shapes your identity and sense of belonging. But how can you be both within the body and between the body and in relationship to people and the planet? In this talk we will explore how you can combine an inner “Me” and an inter “We” to become a whole integrated self―a MWe! In many ways, we are more like interconnected verb-like events rather than only noun-like separate entities. The symbolic term MWe integrates the inner aspect of who we are with the interconnected facet of our lives: Me plus We equals MWe. Integration is composed of differentiated aspects being linked without losing the uniqueness of the differentiated components. Me does not get lost in MWe, it is woven with the equally important differentiated sense of We. With this more integrated sense of our identity, MWe can move forward to cultivate personal, interpersonal, and even planetary health and flourishing.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Recite a working definition of identity.
  • Discuss the relationships between identity, belonging, and a “sense of self.”
  • Explain how “sense of self” does not have to be limited to the body.
  • Describe three benefits of the subjective experience of “being connected.”
  • Define what interpersonal connection consists of.
  • Distinguish between interconnection and intraconnection.
