Join Dan Hughes and Jon Baylin for their online ‘Getting in Sync: Reviving the Potential for Social Engagement in Maltreated Children’ workshop on 25 February, 2022.

Hosted from the UK by Scottish Attachment in Action (SAIA), the online workshop will run from 12pm-5:30pm GMT (7am-12:30pm EST). Tickets costs from £37 for SAIA Members, students and parents and carers, and £60 for professionals.

Dan will explain how Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) targets both blocked trust and blocked care, enabling the parent and child to synchronize their states of mind to support mutual trust…”
