The impact of DDP on adopted and care experienced children

IPC publishes ground breaking Open Access SAGE journal article about the effects of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) on adopted and care experienced children.

The data used in the study was collected by us as part of our evaluation of the Department for Education's Adoption Support Fund, during the pandemic. The Adoption Support Fund is a government funded scheme which funds therapeutic services for children and young people who are adopted or have a Special Guardianship Order. Analysis of the parent/carer provided outcomes found an association between receiving DDP and improvements in both child and young person, and parent/carer wellbeing.
