Spend two hours every month with a small community of clinicians led by child and family therapy expert, Dafna Lender. Each month the group will examine two case studies in depth and will discuss clinical challenges and how DDP skills can be applied to the case. Each clinician will have the option to present one case to the group. This program is open for enrollment to people who have completed DDP Level 1 or 2 training. We invite you to collaborate with other clinicians to enhance your DDP skills as they apply to your work with clients.
*This group supervision pairs well with the Skills Group. For more information, click here.
Q: Why should I join this consultation group?
A: Besides the fact that this will help you sleep better at night knowing that you have a coherent plan for your toughest cases (!), you will learn how to practice DDP in the most effective way: by doing it. Rather than only having attachment theory inform your practice intellectually, you will learn actual attachment-based skills and techniques to turn theory into practice.
Q: Do I have to present a video in order to get DDP supervision on a case?
A: No, you can just present orally. You can even do a live role play on Zoom if you are feeling courageous.
Q: What if I can’t fill a whole hour of my supervision time?
A: This rarely happens! But if you run out of questions, we will turn to the group for their questions/comments.
Q: What kind of technology will I need?
A: The supervision will be done through Zoom, which is an online conference program. You will need a webcam and microphone, a stable internet connection and your video on your computer (if you have video).
Q: Will this count towards DDP certification?
A: The DDP practicum begins after you have taken Level 2 and have applied and been accepted to the practicum. For more details, see:https://ddpnetwork.org/ddpi/practitioner-certification-ddp/ Once you are enrolled in the DDP practicum, your presentations will count (as long as you present with video).
Q: If it doesn’t count towards certification until after Level 2, why should I join the supervision group?
A: Besides the fact that this will help you sleep better at night knowing that you have a coherent plan for your toughest cases (!), you will want to build your DDP foundational skills before applying for the official practicum.
