DDP Level One Training, Adelaide, SA, Australia

7 May 2024 - 10 May 2024 (9:00 am - 4:00 pm)

This is an introductory 4-day course on Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, an intervention model developed by Dan Hughes, Clinical Psychologist, USA.

This approach assists therapists and other professionals to understand and effectively support children, young people and their families. In this model, theory and research in the areas of developmental trauma, attachment theory, intersubjectivity and child development are integrated to produce a therapeutic approach used for relationship development and trauma resolution.  DDP recognises the vital role which adoptive parents, foster carers and residential workers play as primary attachment figures in the recovery of traumatised, attachment-resistant children.

The principles and interventions are presented through formal presentations, discussion, videotape of sessions, role-play, and hand outs.

About this hybrid training

This is a hybrid training where Dr. Sian Phillips, DDP Trainer, will join virtually and Lorren Arezio, DDP Consultant and Trainer in Training, will be facilitating in person along with the training participants.

Who is it For?
