Please find below information on our upcoming 4-Day Dyadic Developmental Practice (DDP) Level 1 workshop being hosted in New Plymouth during August with Hannah Sun-Reid.
DDP was developed by US Psychologist Dr Dan Hughes and is focused on working with children (and their carers) who have experienced past developmental trauma and have associated attachment difficulties. This popular introductory course will be relevant to professionals, therapists and carers who have experience in communicating with and working therapeutically with children, young people and their families.
This is the final DDP Level One that will be offered in New Zealand during 2021 and it is already over half full so we would certainly encourage you to register promptly as there is a ceiling on the number of places available.
Compass does offer payment plans on this workshop, feel free to contact us for more information.

This Level One (Introductory) 28-hour (4-day) intensive training course is a pre-requisite to becoming a certified DDP practitioner and is strictly limited to only 24 participants.
