Conversations of DDP: Experiences of blocked care within an Edge of Care team

, ,

Abstract

“Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) is an established approach used to support families and children to develop healthy relationships. The approach was originally used therapeutically with foster and adoptive families but has been further developed for working with biological parents or caregivers and residential care staff. DDP informed interventions have been used in the Edge of Care service, and this article outlines some of the benefits they have had, particularly in relation to blocked care and supporting parents or caregivers to reconnect with their children. It has also been helpful in supporting professionals and parents/caregivers to reconnect, in turn promoting child welfare and safety.”
