Dan Hughes live at Adoption UK

Simon January 21, 2021 20:22

Thank you to everyone from Adoption UK who organised this afternoon’s fantastic webinar with Dr Dan Hughes, world famous clinical psychologist and founder of dyadic development psychotherapy (DDP). Dan broadcast live all the way from his home in the USA.

I was struck at what an incredibly nice man Dan Hughes is. I almost felt I was sitting in his living room and he was talking to me personally! A very down to earth and humble man. I really enjoyed Dan’s re-refreshing honesty and straightforwardness. No matter the level of expertise of anyone watching today, Dan’s many years of experience, stories and anecdotes will have given everyone something to take away with them.

Dan’s parenting strategies around attachment, trauma and PACE where beautifully blended with a gentle humour. Something I feel is often overlooked and is the first thing out of the window when things get tough. Having said that, in Dan’s own words “there’s a spring in my step today”. “We have a new President of the United States!”

I must finish by also thanking Rob from Adoption UK for hosting today’s webinar – fab job as usual Rob. Thank you.
