DDP in focus: online professional development program for 2024 from DDPI Worldwide

31 January 2024

DDPI Worldwide is excited to announce the launch of “DDP in focus”, our online professional development and education program for 2024.

Comprising workshops, seminars and supervision sessions, this series will help you develop and broaden your cultural competency, DDP skills and practice. They are open to professionals who work with children who have experienced relational trauma, with a wide range of DDP experience.

The DDPI Worldwide Board writes:

“The Board is excited that the first phase of online workshops will draw the DDP community for important learning. It is our hope over time to increase the range of workshops and to offer access over more time zones. We encourage the DDP community to take up these great opportunities for learning and growth.”

Our presenters are world renowned experts in their fields and practitioners in DDP including: Dan Hughes (DDP Founder), Kim Golding CBE, Julie Hudson, Charmaine Lane, Sian Phillips, Dr. Elizabeth Studwell, Dr. Jacqueline Lynch, Jon Baylin, Edwina Grant and Alison Keith.

They are all being held online using Zoom and for this first group we have timed them for Eastern Standard and Greenwich Mean time zones.  

The sessions explore DDP and PACE in practice as they relate to a variety of themes and applications, as follows:

As well as these workshops we are excited to be able to offer direct support to our DDP community in their DDP practice and training for our Consultants. 

Dan Hughes is offering Advanced DDP Supervision to people who have completed DDP Level Two. There are four individual dates available March 5, May 14, September 10 and December 3. This is a fantastic opportunity to receive DDP supervision from the founder of DDP, we anticipate this will sell out fast and so please book your place as soon as possible.

Kim Golding will be presenting Supporting DDP Practitioners through the practicum: what does ‘good skill developing’ look like? for DDP Consultants and DDP Practitioners on the Consultant Practicum. Gain valuable insight and training when working with people on the practicum, while sharing your experiences and challenges.

Ticket prices vary according to the length of the session. We’re delighted to include Intersectional Inclusion tickets to welcome people from intersections of our DDP Community as part of our offer. This includes but is not limited to people who self-identify as LGBTQ+, Global Majority, physical disability / sensitivity, neurodiverse, low income, adult adoptees for example.
