Compass Seminar with Dan Hughes on Developmental Trauma

Wednesday, May 17, 2017   Posted in: Training By: Administrator With tags: workshop, young people, mental health, mental wellbeing, development, Training

Compass Seminars NZ.Compass Seminars is delighted to announce a NZ speaking tour with influential US psychologist, author and speaker Dr Dan Hughes. Dan developed Dyadic Developmental Practice (DDP) for professionals and families who care for young people who have experienced developmental trauma and have resulting difficulties in their neurological, affective, cognitive, and behavioural development.

In this one-day presentation, the central role of attachment in enabling an individual to resolve conflicts and traumatic experiences, develop affect regulation and reflective functioning, and establish a coherent narrative will be explored. Principles and strategies for both psychological intervention and daily care which draw on an understanding of attachment, trauma, and neurodevelopmental processes will be presented and discussed.

Date: Monday 19th June 2017
Time: 9am to 3.30pm. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are provided.
Location: Chateau on the Park - a DoubleTree by Hilton (189 Deans Avenue)
