The George Hull Centre Institute of Childhood Trauma & Attachment and the International Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, Parenting & Practice Institute invite everyone who works with children, including professionals and students in mental health, education, child welfare, and juvenile justice, as well as parents and caregivers, to learn, discover resources and make connections that support our work at this three day virtual conference.

When children feel scared, alone, and abandoned, due to relational trauma early in their lives, they learn that the world and relationships are not safe they learn not to trust those who care for them.  The emotional walls these children build to protect themselves from further pain frequently keep them stuck in shame, loneliness, and confusion. DDP teaches caregivers and professionals across sectors to harness the power of connection to transform this suffering into healing and the discovery of comfort and joy.

DDP supports parents and children in developing close, powerful attachment bonds between caregivers and their children. DDP integrates research in the areas of attachment theory, developmental trauma, the neurobiology of trauma, attachment and caregiving, intersubjectivity theory, and child development.

At the conclusion of this conference, participants will understand how relational safety is critical to prepare new learning for individuals, families, organizations and systems and how DDP and AEDP create that safety. Participants will learn about/be able to explain the importance of cultural humility and anti-oppressive practices in trauma-informed work.
