Dr. Tina Payne Bryson on The YES Brain and Cultivating Courage

Dr. Tina Payne Bryson is a psychotherapist and the Founder and Director of The Center for Connection, a cutting-edge facility dedicated to helping kids, adults, and families be happier, healthier, and more fully themselves. Dr. Bryson also speaks internationally and will be hosting the next installment of Eagle Hill’s 21-22 virtual Speaker Series on April 5, 2022, at 7 p.m. Register today!

A mom before an educator or researcher, Dr. Bryson's family values are at the core of her practice. As a psychotherapist and a teacher, she makes it her mission to make her research and theory clear, realistic, humorous, and immediately helpful.

This segment will dive deeper into Dr. Bryson’s latest publication, The YES Brain: How to Cultivate Courage, Curiosity, and Resilience in Your Child. Co-written with veteran speaker, Dr. Siegal, this book is an essential tool for nurturing positivity, potential, and happiness.

“We know that relationships have the power to change our brains and therefore transform our lives. That’s why we say it all starts with connection. Connected relationships = connected brains. Our focus here isn’t just on changing a person’s behavior, but instead on promoting strong and significant relationships between parents and their children, between partners, among educators and students, and even among professionals—all for health, happiness, and thriving.”


Dr. Tina Payne Bryson is the author of The Bottom Line for Baby and co-author (with Dan Siegel) of two New York Times Best Sellers, as well as The Yes Brain and The Power of Showing Up. She is the Founder and Executive Director of The Center for Connection, a  multidisciplinary  clinical practice, and of The Play Strong Institute, a center devoted to the study, research, and practice of play therapy through a neurodevelopmental lens. Dr. Bryson keynotes conferences and conducts workshops for parents, educators, and clinicians all over the world, and she frequently consults with schools, businesses, and other organizations.
