Dyadic Developmental Practice Training – Level One

Please note that government guidance regarding COVID-19 will be reviewed around the time of the training to determine if it will be possible to deliver it face to face. If the training is unable to take place face to face, it will be delivered virtually.

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.
