DDP Interest Group for Social Workers and Social Care Staff, June 2023

15 June 2023 (10:00 am - 12:00 pm BSTEurope/London)
United Kingdom

This is a free DDP Interest Group for Social Workers and Social Care staff who have completed training in DDP Level One and above. It is organised by Debbie Havill, a former Adoption Social worker who now works independently as a DDP Practitioner with parents and carers, and Anita Huggins who is a Deputy Team Manager with Adoption West and is working toward certification as a DDP Practitioner working with parents and carers.

The group is a specialist SIG set up specifically for social workers and social care staff in recognition of the differing needs and issues often arising for those professionals, as opposed to other professionals working in more clinical/therapeutic settings. The group offers a safe space to discuss relevant issues and discussion within the group often includes exploring particular dilemmas associated with using a therapeutic DDP approach alongside the statutory tasks and responsibilities of the social worker role.

In addition, the group provides an opportunity to build professional connections, keep in touch with the wider DDP world and to support each member’s DDP journey.

The level of DDP experience and needs of group members on the day will set the themes and context for each meeting.
