Please note this training is run over four days – 4th-7th February 2019
This is an introductory 4 day training course in Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP), an intervention developed by Dan Hughes, Clinical Psychologist in the USA.
DDP is based on and brings together attachment theory, what we understand about developmental trauma, the neurobiology of trauma, attachment and caregiving, intersubjectivity theory and child development.
Troubled children may have had many changes in the people who look after them and find it hard to trust adults. They may believe that parents aren’t safe and can’t always be turned to for comfort and help. They may develop insecure attachments and try to stop their new parents from becoming emotionally close to them.
The approach helps the children to learn to trust. It is family based and involves the child with his or her caregivers.
The course runs over 4 days – 4th-7th February 2019
The venue will be Buckfast Abbey Conference Centre, Northwood Lane, Buckfast, TQ11 0EG
