Dyadic Developmental Practice Training – Level 1

This is an introductory 4-day course on Dyadic Developmental Practice (DDP), an intervention model developed by Dan Hughes, Clinical Psychologist. This approach assists therapists and other professionals to understand and effectively support children, young people and their families. In this model, theory and research in the areas of developmental trauma, attachment theory, intersubjectivity and child development are integrated to produce a therapeutic approach used for relationship development and trauma resolution. DDP recognises the vital role which adoptive parents, foster carers and residential workers play as primary attachment figures in the recovery of traumatised, distrusting children. The principles and interventions are presented through presentations, discussion, videotape of sessions, role-play, and handouts.

This training will be delivered by Dr Sue Drake, Clinical Psychologist and DDP Trainer, and runs from 9.30am-4.00pm on 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th June 2021.
