Dr. Tina Payne Bryson speaks internationally to parents, educators, camps, and clinicians, focusing on how we can help the kids we love be happier, healthier, and more fully themselves.  The co-author (with Dan Siegel) of the best-selling THE WHOLE-BRAIN CHILD (Random House Delacorte, 2011) and the upcoming NO-DRAMA DISCIPLINE (due out in September!), Tina is a psychotherapist and school counselor who makes frequent media appearances on venues like “Good Morning America” and Redbook magazine. Dr. Bryson earned her Ph.D. from the University of Southern California, where her research explored attachment science, childrearing theory, and the emerging field of interpersonal neurobiology.  She has an unusual knack for taking research and theory from various fields of science, and offering it in a way that’s clear, realistic, humorous, and immediately helpful.
