New DDP Study Group for 2023-24 with Leah Crane and Courtney Rennicke, USA

5 September 2023

A new online DDP Study Group with Leah Crane and Courtney Rennicke is starting on September 18, 2023.

The group will meet online approximately every two months from 9:30-11:30am EST / 2:30-4:30pm GMT. It is open to all who have an interest in DDP practice including those without training in DDP, and is appropriate for North America, South America, and UK, Western Europe time zones.

“Join DDP Trainers Leah Crane, Psy.D., Director of the Family Collaborative in Westport, Connecticut and Courtney Rennicke, Ph.D., Director of Rennicke & Associates in New York City, who will lead a series of 5 two-hour online gatherings that will provide attendees with the opportunity to:

  • Connect with peers
  • Feel more resourced in your clinical work
  • Strengthen your understanding of DDP principles
  • Deepen your DDP practice

This study series will focus on core components and principles of DDP practice: establishing safety, PACE, a/r dialog, and rupture and repair. Each study day and DDP component is anchored by self-compassion and self-care for ourselves as human beings and as therapists. Courtney and Leah will support community members through didactic presentations, experiential practice, role plays and case consultation, as well as supportive feedback from group members.”

All session dates are as follows: September 18, November 13, January 18, 2024, March 18 and May 13.

Each individual session costs $100 or you can register for all 5 for $450, saving $50.

It is meaningful to Leah and Courtney to support the professional development of therapists of color in DDP that reflect the diverse racial identities of the children and families that we are all honored to know and work with. For this DDP Study Group, 25% or 4 of the spaces will be reserved for clinicians of color to pay what they wish for the study series.

To register please visit the Eventbrite booking page. You can also find all dates in our event and training listings.
