Daniel Hughes is the founder of “Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy”: family-based and focused on facilitating the child’s ability to establish a secure attachment with his/her caregivers.

Developmental trauma creates pervasive areas of impairment that require a comprehensive treatment. This presentation describes ways of engaging children and youth with developmental trauma in treatment and daily care through principles derived from attachment and intersubjectivity theory and research. Practical interventions for treatment and home are described along with videos of treatment sessions.

Participants will learn...

  • The 7 domains of impairment and 6 goals for treatment for children with developmental trauma.

  • The three central components of intersubjectivity along with their importance and utilization in treatment.

  • The characteristics of PACE (playful, acceptance, curiosity, empathy) and its utilization in treatment and daily care.

Daniel Hughes, PhD is a clinical psychologist from Pennsylvania who, after receiving his PhD in Clinical Psychology from Ohio University, began specializing in the treatment of children and youth who had experienced abuse and neglect and, for the most part, manifested serious psychological problems secondary to childhood trauma and attachment disorganization. Not having much success helping these children with traditional treatments, he developed an attachment-focused treatment that relied heavily on the theories and research of attachment and intersubjectivity to guide his model of treatment and parenting.

Hughes is the author of three books including Building the Bonds of Attachment, 2nd edition, (2006), and Attachment-Focused Family Therapy (2007). He has provided training and consultations to agencies, therapists, social workers and parents throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia and provides regular trainings at Colby College in Maine, Annville, PA, and London, UK. He also is a visiting tutor for a graduate program in London.

Approved for 6 CEs for Social Workers, LMHCs, and LMFTs.
