Despite exuberance of theory, there is an enduring gap between psychotherapy/counseling practice in the consulting room, and its empirical basis.  We know from quantitative research that therapy works and that no one modality of therapy is consistently and demonstrably superior.  The precise ‘mechanisms of change’ remain obscure, but recent advances in relational neuroscience pinpoint brain processes that foster secure as opposed to insecure attachments, with significant implications for therapeutic practice.  These include

·       bio-behavioural synchrony (Feldman)

·       sensitive periods (Tottenham)

·       the capacity to tolerate not-knowing or ‘unbound energy’ (Friston)

In this master class Professor Homes will explore how knowledge of these principles can influence the minutiae of therapeutic practice, especially sensitivity, affect regulation, shaping therapeutic dialogue and a stance of radical acceptance.  

The exploration of these themes will be interspersed with time and space for ‘live supervision’, where participants can discuss how they apply to their own practice.

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 training.

It follows on from the ideas and skills introduced in Level One and is suitable for those who are beginning to use the principles and interventions in their day-to-day work.

The aims of this training are:

  • To gain a deeper understanding of the theory and practice of the interventions and parenting principles used in this approach.
  • To follow up on any relevant themes that participants would like more teaching on.
  • For each participant to 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.
  • To provide participants with 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.

Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) has been developed by Dan Hughes over the past twenty years as a model of therapy for developmentally traumatized children and their families based on a theoretical understanding of attachment and intersubjective relationships. More recently Dyadic Developmental Practice has been recognized as providing a framework which extends beyond the therapy to also provide network, school and parenting support.

This four day training introduces DDP and the broader framework of Dyadic Developmental Practice within which the therapy is applied. The core components of DDP will be presented and explored through discussion and experiential exercises.

The level one training will provide the knowledge and practice necessary for attendees to apply DDP principles to their work with developmentally traumatised children and their families.

A Workshop with Dr Stephen Blumenthal

What do you do if a person you are working with describes thoughts or actions which cause you to worry that they might harm themselves or someone else? Dr Blumenthal has worked with people who act out their conflicts by engaging in risky behaviour for many years, both in the NHS and in private practice. Behaviours such as these cause practitioners to worry, which can undermine personal and professional esteem. Understanding such processes can promote confidence and enrich clinical practice.
