IntraConnected: Integrating Identity and Broadening Belonging as MWe with Dan Siegel, M.D.

In this presentation, we’ll examine the notion of “connection” and its correlation with mental health. We will focus our discussion on the nature of both interconnection—the links between parts of a system—and intraconnection—the wholeness of the system.
