Australian Childhood Foundation
Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy & Practice Level 1 Course
27-30 November 2019, 9.00am-5.00pm
Trainer: Dr Sian Phillips.
This is an introductory 4 day course in Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy. Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) is the model of intervention developed by Dan Hughes over the past three decades. It offers a treatment approach to trauma, loss, and/or other dysregulating experiences, that is based on principles derived from the theories and research of attachment, intersubjectivity, and trauma.
Dr Dan Hughes has been at the forefront of using attachment and neuroscience in resourcing adaptive and positive connections between traumatised children and their parents or caregivers. His approach is family centred and offers very practical strategies for a wide range of professionals who work with vulnerable children and their relationship contexts.
This course is essential for child protection, out of home care, family support and mental health professionals who are interested in more centrally engaging with the power of relationships to heal and transform the trauma associated with abuse, violence and neglect.
