Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy: An evidence-baesd treatment

ATTACh Conference

of Children’s annual conference, this year in San Antonio Texas. It was a wonderful conference for professionals, parents, and researchers. I had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Bruce Perry, a key note speaker, talk about the effects of trauma in childhood on later development. The mediating factor is the effects of trauma on brain development and brain function. This leads to an approach or sequencing of treatment that takes into account which systems of the brain are impaired. This was a very useful talk.

I strongly recommend that people consider the conference next year, in California. More information can be found at
