Dyadic Developmental Practice (DDP) Level One:

A Four Day Intensive Training with Hannah Sun-Reid

Brief Overview

Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) was created by US clinical Psychologist Dan Hughes as an intervention model for families with adopted or fostered children who had experienced neglect and abuse in their birth families & suffered from significant developmental trauma. DDP is based on and brings together attachment theory, what we understand about developmental trauma, the neurobiology of trauma, attachment and caregiving, intersubjectivity theory and child development. It focuses on facilitating the child’s readiness & ability to establish a secure attachment with their caregivers and is family-based. It is called Dyadic Developmental Practice to focus attention on the importance of reciprocity in parenting, caregiving and therapy, but also to draw attention to the fact that abuse, neglect and trauma can seriously impact on the child’s developmental age and stage. >Read More...
