What is Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy?
1. Non-verbal communication, communicative mismatch and repair, playful interactions and the relationship between the parents’ attachment status and that of a toddler are all well documented and important for early healthy emotional development.
2. Client makes “a real logical jump” in assuming that the same events can be deliberately summarized and the main points recalled in order to correct the emotional condition of an older child.
3. Holding therapy is included, meaning a therapist physically restrains the child in order for the child to feel their emotions and integrate into the self.
4. Age regression in encouraged therapy.
