This year’s DDP International Conference, in conjunction with George Hull Centre for Families and Children, is being moved to new dates in 2021.
Due to COVID-19, we postponed the conference originally planned for October 2020. Our new dates for “Connection at the Core: DDP as a Framework for Addressing Relational Trauma Across Models and Systems” are June 14-16, 2021 in Toronto, Canada and virtually, with sessions also running online.

The conference will feature keynote presentations and special breakout sessions from Dan Hughes, founder and developer of DDP, and Dr. Diana Fosha, developer of AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) and director and founder of the AEDP Institute.
They will be joined by featured presenters including Dr. Patricia Vickers, Indigenous teacher, artist, psychotherapist and spiritual director; Dr. Helen Minnis, Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Glasgow; and Dr. Jon Baylin, Clinical Psychologist and author.
