DDP Level Two by Sue Drake

Who can attend?

Sometimes practitioners who complete Level One feel that Level Two isn’t for them, thinking it is mainly for people working as therapists directly with children and their families. This is not the case. Level Two is aimed at all practitioners in this area of work. This can include practitioners or social workers who primarily work with foster or adoptive parents, undertaking assessments and placement matching, or initial work with parents and later placement or family support. It doesn’t matter if the practitioner doesn’t work with children; the parenting aspects of this approach will be relevant. The same applies for social workers and practitioners working with children in care and children in birth families.

General Information and Certification as a Practitioner in DDP

After completing Level Two you can apply to become certified as a practitioner in DDP. Since January 2014, there is a new process to enable social workers and practitioners without a therapy qualification to have their skills and experience in this area of work formally recognised, such as working with parents or caregivers only or working in educational settings only. It is also possible for an organisation, team or residential unit to become formally recognised as practicing using DDP principles and components via the newly

developed process of Organisational Certification.

There is detailed information about all certification processes in the Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy Institute (DDPI) sections of the website ddpnetwork.org
