DYADIC DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOTHERAPY

Compass Seminars in collaboration with the DDP Network provide information about Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and Practice, its parenting approach (PACE), resources, and training courses for Australian professionals and families/ carers.

Dan Hughes, a Clinical Psychologist, created Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) as a treatment for families with adopted or fostered children who had experienced neglect and abuse in their birth families and 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.

Troubled children may have had many changes in the people who look after them and find it hard to trust adults. They may believe that parents aren’t safe and can’t always be turned to for comfort and help. They may develop insecure attachments and try to stop their new parents from becoming emotionally close to them. The therapy helps the children learn to trust.  It is family-based and involves the child with his or her caregivers.

Bookings are now open for the 2018 Level 1 & 2 workshops below.
