Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) Level 2

Dan Hughes, PhD

Evanston, IL: March 28-31, 2017

Training Information

This DDP Level Two 4-day or 28 hour course is open to clinical psychologists, social workers, parent mentors, therapists and other practitioners, who have completed the 4-day Level One DDP training. Each participant will have an opportunity to receive consultation about his or her work.

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).
  • Recognizes the vital role which adoptive parents, foster carers and residential workers play in the recovery of traumatized, attachment-resistant children.


By the end of this course, participants will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the theory and practice of the interventions and parenting principles used in this approach.
  • Follow up on any relevant themes that participants would like more teaching on.
  • Have opportunities to focus on the successes and barriers experienced in applying the model in their practice via supervision or consultation about their work with families or their specific practice. This is the main aim.
  • Have the opportunity to explore (in small groups of 3 people for one hour a day) how their attachment history and experiences may inform and have an impact on their work.
