Scottish Attachment in Action (SAIA) have published a video recording of Dan Hughes at their 2018 Aberdeen, UK, conference.

In A Day With Dan Hughes, over three parts Dan covers building trust and relationships with traumatised children, caring for children who block care, and creating connections with them. It will of interest to professionals, parent and carers.

Access costs only £10, and all funds go to SAIA to enable them to continue their important work especially at this difficult time.

“Powerfully Interwoven with stories of his therapeutic work with families, Dan talks about the potential impact on all aspects of children’s development of interfamilial trauma.

He straightforwardly explains the theoretical underpinnings of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, for example, Intersubjectivity, Blocked Trust and Blocked Care. Dan then articulates how these understandings translate into therapeutic action with the core attitude of PACE, supporting the parenting figures to keep their hearts hopeful, and the children – with their parents as co-therapists – to go on the journey from ‘it’s my fault, I’m a bad kid ‘to I am ‘likeable and lovable’.

The recording is interspersed through stories with practical parenting strategies such as connection before correction.”
