Dyadic Developmental Practice and Psychotherapy (DDP) – Level 1

Date: 5 Mar 2019 - 8 Mar 2019

Singapore

Psychological interventions and parenting approaches with children and adolescents who have experienced developmental trauma and have attachment difficulties. Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy ( DDP) is an intervention model developed by Dan Hughes, Clinical Psychologist from Pennsylvania U.S.A. DDP is family-based and is focused on facilitating the child’s readiness and ability to establish a secure attachment with his/her caregivers. It is an approach that: • Integrates recent research in the areas of neurobiology of trauma, early child development and attachment theory, to produce a therapeutic and parenting approach that assists professionals to understand and effectively support children with trauma attachment problems, and their families • Communicates playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy (PACE) in order to help the child regulate their feelings (often fear, shame and anger) associated with past experiences and to create together new meanings to be integrated into the child’s life story (autobiographical narrative). • Recognises the vital role which adoptive parents, foster carers and residential workers play in the recovery of traumatised, attachment-resistant children.
