DDP PACE Training launching in Australia this October

25 September 2023

DDP PACE Training is coming to Brisbane, QLD, on October 12-13, 2023.

This two-day training will be facilitated by Lorren Arezio, DDP Consultant and Clinical Psychologist and Leah Millward, Social Worker and DDP Practitioner, at the Glen Hotel, Eight Mile Planes. It is organised by Compass Seminars AUS, our main DDP Level One and Two training provider in Australia.

This training is for professionals and adults who work with, teach, support and provide care for children and young people who have experienced the damaging effects of abuse, neglect and disruption. This includes youth workers, people who work in residential care, youth justice and child protection, teachers, foster and kinship carers and those who work with them, and therapeutic staff who want more practice at using PACE in their work. The training content has been adapted to take into account local cultural issues and the Australian context.

DDP PACE Training introduces how the experience of PACE, underpinned by the Dyadic Developmental Practice (DDP) model, can start to help children with developmental trauma recover trust and safety. DDP PACE Training is supported by DDPI, and therefore with robust frameworks and a grounding in neuroscience, attachment and intersubjectivity.

Following the training attendees are also invited to access two, one-hour online coaching sessions to help build their confidence and connect them with others using PACE.

Standard tickets cost $800 AUD (incl GST) and places are limited. For more detailed information please visit the event page, and you can book directly on the Compass Seminars AUS website.

There are plans to roll out DDP PACE across Australia and run another eight sessions in 2024 and DDPI are delighted to support this.

DDP PACE Training is provided by DDP PACE Trainers who are supported by DDPI. All upcoming training globally can be found in our Events & Training section under DDP PACE.
