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 New York Times best-selling THE WHOLE-BRAIN CHILD and the New York Times best-selling NO-DRAMA DISCIPLINE, Tina is a psychotherapist and the Executive Director of The Center for Connection in Pasadena, California, where she offers parenting consultations and provides therapy to children and adolescents.  She makes frequent media appearances in venues like TIME, “Good Morning America,” Huffington Post, Redbook, and Real Simple. 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.
