Thanks to everyone for making the 2-day DDP residential conference in Birmingham 10-11 November such a success, including Scottish dancing on Monday evening. The conference was sold out with 125 delegates on Day One and 170 on Day Two; a day with Dan Hughes and Jon Baylin on how current knowledge about the brain informs how we help children move from mistrust to trust.
Day One included presentations about how DDP principles are being put into practice across the UK by adoptive parents, in residential homes, fostering agencies, during transitions from foster care to adoptive care, as well presentations about Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy including blending DDP and Theraplay.
Kim Golding also spoke about her recent book Using Stories to Build Bridges with Traumatized Children.
More information including Handouts and photos will be added to the website soon.
