DDP PACE Training, North Lakes, QLD, Australia

24 October 2024 - 25 October 2024 (9:00 am - 4:00 pm)
In person

DDP PACE training helps attendees understand the impact of developmental trauma and the challenges that children with this experience can struggle with. It introduces how the experience of PACE, underpinned by the Dyadic Developmental Practice (DDP) model, can start to help these children to recover trust and safety, giving them back their futures.

In this two-day workshop the focus is on PACE in action, by giving you the foundations to support your development and motivation to use the PACE attitude.

It is aimed at a wide range of 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 foster and kinship carers, birth families and parents, workers supporting birth families and foster and kinship placements, residential care staff, youth workers, teachers/educational staff, as well as professionals working within Child Safety, Youth Justice and other support roles. Reading materials, video clips and activities support and reinforce each area covered.
