Practitioner in DDP, Consultant in DDP, Trainer in DDP
Dan Hughes is a clinical psychologist who resides in Lebanon, PA, with an office in nearby Annville. After receiving his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Ohio University he fairly quickly began specializing in the treatment of children and youth who had experienced abuse and neglect and for the most part now manifested serious psychological problems secondary to childhood trauma and attachment disorganization. Not having much success helping these children with traditional treatments, he developed an attachment-focused treatment that relied heavily on the theories and research of attachment and intersubjectivity to guide his model of treatment and parenting.
Dan resided for 30 years in Maine until moving to Lebanon. He is the author of three books including Building the Bonds of Attachment, 2nd edition, (2006), and Attachment-Focused Family Therapy (2007). He has provided training and consultations to therapists, social workers and parents throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia and provides regular training's at Colby College in Maine, Annville, PA, and London, UK. He also is a visiting tutor for a graduate program in London.
Dan was born in Pittsburgh and has three daughters and one granddaughter.
