Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy Level 1 (online)
October 17 @ 9:30 am - October 24 @ 3:00 pm
Starting on October 17th, Dafna Lender will be teaching a new round of DDP Level 1 in a virtual setting.
This approach assists therapists and other professionals to understand and effectively support children, young people and their families. In this model, theory and research in the areas of developmental trauma, attachment theory, intersubjectivity and child development are integrated to produce a therapeutic approach used for relationship development and trauma resolution. DDP recognizes the vital role which adoptive parents, foster carers and residential workers play as primary attachment figures in the recovery of traumatized, attachment-resistant children.
The principles and interventions are presented through formal presentations, discussion, videotape of sessions, role-play, and handouts.
