In *Parenting from the Inside Out*, child psychiatrist Daniel J. Siegel, MD, and early childhood expert Mary Hartzell, MEd, explore the extent to which our childhood experiences shape the way we parent.
Daniel J. Siegel, MD, received his medical degree from Harvard University and completed his postgraduate medical education at UCLA, where he is currently a clinical professor. He is the executive director of the Mindsight Institute, and the author of numerous books, including the acclaimed bestsellers *Mindsight: change your brain and your life* and *The Whole-Brain Child* (co-authored with Tina Payne Bryson). He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and occasionally with his launched adolescents. Mary Hartzell, MEd, received her master's degree in early-childhood education and psychology from UCLA, and is a child-development specialist and parent educator. She has taught children, parents, and teachers for more than 30 years, and has been the director of a highly respected Reggio-inspired preschool in Santa Monica, California. Her parent-education classes and CD series on parent - child relationships have improved the lives of children and their families for decades.
