    Interested in Learning More about Interpersonal Neurobiology? In recent years, Debra has delved into the study of Interpersonal Neurobiology, speaking, writing, and teaching about its applications to leadership and organizations; psychotherapy; education; healthcare; training and supervision; and our personal lives. Her work applying the IPNB lens and considering the development of mindsight and integration in leadership and organizations is summarized in the article she wrote with one of the founders of the field, Dr. Daniel J. Siegel, Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute.* Debra has helped build the Global Association for Interpersonal Neurobiology Studies and was Co-editor of their Journal, with Bonnie Badenoch, PhD. She teaches an IPNB view of ethics in the IPNB Certificate Program, housed at PCC Institute for Healthcare Professionals.
