DDP Level 1 Training: A Four day Intensive
Compass Seminars is excited to be offering a Dyadic Developmental Practice (Level 1) workshop in Auckland during October. This 4 day intensive is a late addition to our 2019 training programme and has been organised in response to the high levels of interest that we have received in this approach over the last year.
This introductory course will be relevant to professionals and therapists who have experience in communicating with and working therapeutically with children and young people and their families. It is focused on families and residential care where children have experienced past developmental trauma and have associated attachment difficulties.
This is the last opportunity to attend a DDP Level One in New Zealand during 2019. If you are thinking about attending this workshop we would certainly encourage you to register promptly as there is a ceiling on the number of places and historically this training has sold out. Compass does offer payment plans on this workshop, feel free to contact us for more information.
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.
