Healing Developmental Trauma: Attachment-Focused Interventions for Children, Teens, and their Families

Dan Hughes, PhD
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Thursday, November 2, and Friday, November 3, 2017, Multi-Faith Centre/Koffler House (569 Spadina Avenue, Toronto)

Dan Hughes has been a pioneer in attachment-focused treatment for children, teens, and families. He created Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) to help children and young adults who have histories of abuse, neglect, and/or multiple placements, and who demonstrate ongoing problems related to attachment and trauma.

Dan’s treatment philosophy is family-based and focused on facilitating the ability of children to establish a secure attachment with their caregivers. Developmental attachment theory and research are the primary models for relationship development and trauma resolution.

DDP blends various approaches, including strategic and structural family therapy, Ericksonian hypnotherapy (the utilization principle), psychodynamic concepts, psychodrama, interventions congruent with Theraplay, and narrative work. Dan actively communicates empathy and acceptance while providing the individual child with the comfort and containment needed to explore and resolve past trauma and shame-related experiences. At the same time, he actively facilitates the child’s ability to form positive, reciprocal relationships with parents or primary caregivers. Dan will explore strategies to create “PACE”: playfulness, acceptance, curiosity, and empathy.

This model of psychotherapy can be practised with an individual or in family therapy, with the priority being given to a family format if the caregivers are both able and committed to providing the traumatized child with sufficient safety to begin resolving traumas and developing a secure attachment. You will learn interventions to facilitate the co-regulation of strong emotional states, as well as the co-creation of new meanings of traumatic events.

You will learn —

• The Domains of Impairment caused by developmental trauma
• Six central factors in the successful treatment of developmental trauma
• Three characteristics of Intersubjectivity and how they are utilized in DDP
• How “talking for” and “talking about” are central in creating therapeutic conversations
• The characteristics of the central DDP attitude of PACE
• The nature of Blocked Care when making efforts to help children who resist care
