Trainers: Edwina Grant
This is an introductory 4-day course on Dyadic Developmental Practice, Psychotherapy and Parenting, an intervention model developed by Dan Hughes, Clinical Psychologist, USA.
This approach assists therapists and 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.
Who is it For?
The training is relevant and open to therapists and practitioners who have experience in working with children and young people with trauma-attachment problems and their foster, adoptive or birth families.
Moore House Group provides a range of services supporting children and young people across care, education and fostering placements. The majority of attendees will be from this organisation/service with some places being sold to the public.
Please note that while Level One and Two are open access for professionals working with children and families, there are specific requirements that need to be fulfilled for those who plan to go on to apply for certification as a Practitioner in DDP. Please refer to What is required before starting the practicum for further information.
