I love stories, especially picture book stories. Working with children and families has taught me to share information in an explicit and clear manner. Metaphors add visual interest to complicated information. In my years of providing training and supervision, I have noticed that many have fallen in love with the DDP model, but sometimes unsure of the sequence or the process of the DDP therapy. This has prompted me to create some explicit steps to explain DDP therapy. Of course, I cannot just use written words, I must tell a story, using swimming and diving as the metaphor. Voila! The story of Deep-Sea Diving was born.
This book is for children, parents, carers, and clinicians. It is organized to read as a child’s version, or as an adult version with the “Parent Corner”. I hope the story will help anyone, who has learned DDP, to understand it from a lighter perspective. Enjoy!Hannah Sun-Reid
