New online By Your Side Transition Training for May 2022

31 March 2022

Online By Your Side Transition Training for practitioners is available this May.

By Your Side is an attachment and trauma-informed model for supporting children and the adults who care for them across the transition from foster care to adoption. It is based primarily on Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) and TheraplayⓇ.

The training will be facilitated by Dr Josie Hewitt, starting with a one session By Your Side Overview which illustrates the whole model with an online example and continuing with a two session Practitioner Training which explores the model in more depth. Over the past two years the model has been adapted so that it can be used both face to face and online and this has opened up interesting possibilities for long distance transitions.

The dates are as follows:

  • 3 May, 12:30-3:30pm (GMT) – Module One By Your Side Overview
  • 4 and 5 May, 12:30-3:30pm (GMT) – Module Two By Your Side Practitioner Training

More information and training registration can be found on the By You Side Training page. Please contact with any questions.
