Dr. Regina Pally is a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who has been in private practice for over 35 years, with a special interest in parents and couples. For 25 years she studied and wrote about neuroscience for mental health professionals. Most recently she has dedicated herself to working in the community to improve the lives of children and their families. In 2008 she founded the Center for Reflective Communities, whose mission is to ‘promote healthy child development, by strengthening the relationship bonds that children have with all those who care for them through an emphasis on reflective thinking.
The current focus of her writing is Reflective Parenting. Her latest book ‘The Reflective Parent: How to Do Less and Relate More with Your Kids’ emphasizes that relationships matter most in the life of a child and provides parents with the skills for building positive relationships with their children. The goal is for parents to feel less anxious and more competent as a parent, while at the same time feeling confident that they are giving their child all the necessary ingredients for healthy development.
