Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) is an approach that has been developed to help children and young people who have experienced trauma and disruption within their early relationships. DDP is a therapy often used with children who have been adopted, fostered or live in kinship care and helps children feel safer and more secure in their relationships so that they have the opportunity to thrive.
DDP is also part of a broader model that helps parents and everyone involved with the child – key-people (e.g. teachers, social workers), teams and organisations – understand and discover what they can do to be most helpful for the child and their family.
Our team has additional training and supervision in DDP and can provide DDP-informed therapy and bring DDP principles into their consultation work.
