Trainer: Julie Hudson, Clinical Psychologist, Trainer, Consultant and Practitioner in DDP
This four day course is open to those professionals who have undertaken Level One training and are beginning to use the principles and interventions of Dyadic Developmental Practice, Parenting and Psychotherapy in their day to day work. It focuses on gaining a deeper understanding of the theory, successes and barriers experienced by participants in applying the model in practice, more videos and discussion of DDP and the impact of participant’s own attachment experiences.
It is helpful if participants have examples of their own DDP practice, such as case studies and/or recordings, to share with the group.
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.
About this training
These three professionals bring a unique combination of DDP knowledge, lived experience of difference and a commitment to widening participation in DDP. They have all used DDP and PACE in a wide variety of contexts, including work with birth families, in youth work settings and in enabling organisations to use the DDP model.
Our intention is to offer a safe space where articulation of our differences and how these affect our relationships with others will be encouraged. We will be looking in depth at how intersubjective experience – one of the core DDP themes – is impacted by similarity and difference.
The Old Surgery in Leeds, is a therapeutic space run by DDP Practitioner Georgia Cooper.
“Because of my own experience of difference, I have always had a commitment to equity in the workplace and to ensuring access to education and training for all people. I know that the routes into DDP training and practice can feel closed for many reasons and that DDP would be enriched by the diversity that people who experience such barriers bring to the community.
If you feel you have a difference or lived experience that would increase the diversity of the DDP Practitioner base I would encourage you to have a conversation with me regarding attending this Level Two. This includes people of colour, people who identify as LGBTQA+, people with hidden or visible disabilities, people who have neurodiverse brains and those for whom formal education has been less accessible.
We can discuss if this Level Two would be a good fit and if a reduction in fees would offer you equity.”
