Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy Level 2

28 to 31 July 2020

Dr Dan Hughes’ treatment model, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP), involves working with a child and their family to improve attachment relationships.

Level 2 is more practical than Level 1. Participants have the opportunity to bring in DVDs of their work, and receive feedback and discuss their progress. The training group size for Level 2 is smaller than Level 1, which allows more room for discussion and supervision. Participants will also explore their own attachment styles in the Level 2 training.

To become an accredited DDP therapist, individuals will need to complete Levels 1 and 2 training, produce 10 DVDs and participate in supervision carried out by an accredited DDP therapist.
