This workshop introduces the fundamentals of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy.

“This approach assists professionals to understand and effectively address the underlying traumatic experiences that result in behavioral and relational problems in children. In this model, theory and research in the areas of developmental trauma, attachment theory, intersubjectivity and child development are integrated to produce a therapeutic approach and concrete tools for getting through a child’s defensiveness and feelings of shame to allow them to feel open towards receiving support from their adult attachment figure. Furthermore, the workshop will focus on getting parents to feel less defensive and more cooperative so they can focus on their child’s healing.

The principles and interventions are presented through formal presentations, discussion, videotape of sessions, role-play, and hand outs.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain the concept of developmental trauma
  2. List the 4 components of PACE
  3. Describe the concept of the Affective-Reflective Dialogue
  4. List two behavioral signs that suggest focusing on the affective experience rather than reflective experience
  5. Discuss the concept of Blocked Care
  6. Describe two behaviors in parents that indicate they are in Blocked Care”
