Relational Approaches for Out-of-Home Care




Can be delivered as keynote and workshops

at your workplace or nominated venue in Australia or Asia.



Dan Hughes's popular Brain Based Attachment Model

Dyadic Developmental Practice (DDP) focuses on the importance of reciprocity in parenting, caregiving and therapy, and also to draw attentions to the fact that abuse, neglect and trauma can seriously impact on the child’s developmental age and stage. This intervention is theoretically based on the models of attachment theory and intersubjectivity, and is consistent with the needs of children and young people who have experienced developmental trauma.


Training courses in DDP (Level 1 and Level 2) provide the core knowledge of theory, principles, and interventions that are central in developing the skills necessary to practising DDP successfully. Each four-day workshop covers the principles and interventions  through formal discussion, case examples, videotape of therapy sessions, role-play, story-telling and hand-outs.


Presenters: DDP Board Members (Canada, UK & USA)

Duration: Level 1 is presented over 28 hours (four days) for professionals. Level 2 is presented over 28 hours (four days) workshop for professionals who have completed Level 1

Location: By arrangement at your workplace or nominated venue in Australia or Asia






Caring for Kids from Hard Places

Trust Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI) is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. TBRI® uses Empowering Principles to address physical needs, Connecting Principles for attachment needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear-based behaviors. While the intervention is based on years of attachment, sensory processing, and neuroscience research, the heartbeat of TBRI® is connection.


Presenters: Kerri Chard and Grahame Williams (AUS)

Duration: 7 hours (one day) to professionals or carers

Location: By arrangement at your workplace or nominated venue anywhere in Australia or Asia






Re-imagining Out-of-Home Care for Children & Young People

Relationship-based Care is recognised as a key element in a young person’s ability to recover from developmental trauma and thrive as an adult. As a practice framework it can guide individuals, organisations and systems to be sensitive and responsive to the young person’s attachment, trauma, shame, loss and developmental history. But navigating the daily needs of practical tasks and basic care, through burdening organisational and systemic procedures, towards a culture with the carer-child relationship as the cornerstone, leaves many stakeholders in despair and searching for congruence.

This workshop is for professionals concerned with the care and development of children and young people in Out-of-Home Care (OOHC). It is for government agencies, NGO service providers, youth advocates and third-party therapeutic professionals working with young people and families. It provides an immersive exploration of the relational needs of young people and their families/ carers, that can be addressed on the personal, organisation, community, system, and policy levels.
