Dani, Registered Manager at our Vernon House in Cheshire East, is the first to go on the DDP Level One training course, via the DDP Network.
This is the next step in our Children’s Homes development in embedding a PACEful way of working and reflects the investment from the Group into providing the best possible level of care for our children and young people.
“This is an introductory 4-day course on Dyadic Developmental Practice, Psychotherapy and Parenting, an intervention model developed by Dan Hughes, Clinical Psychologist, USA.
This approach assists therapists and 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 recognises the vital role which adoptive parents, foster carers and residential workers play as primary attachment figures in the recovery of traumatised, attachment-resistant children”.
Good luck with the course Dani, we look forwarding to checking in soon to find out how you get on…
